Keto Ground Beef Recipes - Ground Beef Fat Rations
When it comes to ground beef, there are a few different types of ground beef - basically how much fat content is in the beef. Since the keto diet is a high fat diet, you can use any fat content ground beef. If you use a leaner ground beef, consider adding healthy fats to your meal.
How to tell if ground beef has gone bad?
Check the color - Fresh ground beef should be red due to freshness and limited contact with oxygen.
Check the Texture - Ground beef isn't sticky and it should break apart easily. If it's slimy or sticky, throw it out.
Smell it - This is probably the easiest and quickest way to see if ground beef is still good. If it's smells off, throw it out.
Expiration Date - While some things can still be good for a few days after expiration date, like milk, I wouldn't change it with ground beef.
Tips for Working with Ground Beef
Taking small steps can make all the difference when you're preparing ground beef. Use these tips to maximize the taste and quality of your favorite meals, so that every bite is delicious from start to finish.
Minimize handling - Ground beef tends to loose moisture when being handled. Handle the ground beef as little as possible. If you over mix it, you'll end up with a firm, compact texture after cooking - which is why some burgers and casseroles are dry.
Seasoning - There's almost never enough seasoning. Don't be shy with those seasonings and spices.
Salt After - If you're making burgers, add salt after cooking. Salting before cooking can draw moisture and juices out of the ground beef.
Watch the heat - If the heat is too high, you may overcook your beef on the outside while the inside remains undercooked.
Safe Storage - Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours, and be sure to eat leftovers within 2 to 3 days.
Sanitize - Always wash hands and sanitize cutting boards, countertops and utensils with hot water and soap to prevent potential cross contamination of other foods.
Internal Temperature - Cook ground beef to 160˚ F to ensure that any harmful bacteria are eliminated. Bacteria is introduced into meat during the grinding process.

- 1 red bell pepper, diced
