This Keto Beef and Broccoli is super filling and is ready in less than 30 minutes! This recipe makes 6 servings, 4.9 net carbs each.

This new Pizza Skillet is unbelievably tasty AND packs a big nutritional punch with all of the vegetables! This recipe makes 4 servings, 5.9 net carbs each. Side suggestion: Cheesy Keto Zucchini Breadsticks – 12 breadsticks, 1.9 net carbs each; I just love pairing these with all of our pizza dishes because the flavors work so well together!

We love these Keto Butterscotch Cookies! They’re packed full of dark chocolate chips and butterscotch chips for a delicious low-carb sweet treat. This recipe makes 28 cookies, just 2.4 net carbs each. Don’t forget, you have to chill the cookie dough, so it’s best to meal prep these. Store the cookie dough in the fridge up to 3 days before baking. They’re freezable for longer-term storage, too!

Keto Meal Prep Tips:
Beef and Broccoli –
The sauce makes this dish excellent for meal prepping. You could make the entire dish ahead of time, then store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat the full meal by tossing it back into the skillet and letting it simmer on medium low until it’s warmed throughout. If it’s thickened up too much, just add a tablespoon of water. (Tip: If you’re making ahead and refrigerating until serving, you can most likely skip the xanthan gum since it will thicken on its own in the fridge)
If you prefer to make this fresh but still want to save time, you can slice your steak, cut your broccoli florets, and mix up you sauce ingredients and store in the fridge (meat and veggie will be fine for 2 days, but the sauce will stay good for about a week). You’ll have dinner on the table in no time!
Pizza Skillet –
This is great for meal prep–Making this dish ahead of time and allowing it to sit in the fridge up to 3 days really lets the vegetables soak up that delicious marinara flavor and Italian seasoning! If making ahead of time, I do not add the cheese and broil… I save that for when reheating. So to reheat the entire dish, I pour it back into the skillet, allow it to come to a simmer for a few minutes (adding a tablespoon of water if it looks like it’s thickened more than I like), then top with cheese and broil.
If reheating individual portions, you can simply microwave in 30-second intervals until warmed throughout!
Chicken Stir Fry –
This recipe is easy to make ahead of time, then can be stored in the fridge up to 3 days before serving. The delicious sesame sauce will keep the chicken from drying out when reheating. It’s great for leftover lunches (just microwave individual portions in 30-second increments until warmed throughout) or for a meal prep dinner (reheat in a skillet on the stove or in the oven).
Chicken Nuggets –
These chicken nuggets can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen. You can cut and bread the nuggets then refrigerate for a day before cooking or freeze on a baking sheet for 1-2 hours, then transfer to a freezer bag up to 6 months. If cooking from frozen, just add a few minutes and check the temperature to make sure they are finished.
You can store cooked nuggets in the fridge up to 3 days or freeze up to 4 months. Reheat in the oven or air fryer until warmed throughout. You can also microwave, but the nuggets lose some crispiness.
As I say with most seafood, I don’t make this recipe ahead of time. I do often make the sauce 1-2 days ahead of time, then let it sit in the fridge as the salmon thaws. This way I can get to cooking nearly immediately after getting home!
