25 Keto Steak Recipes (+ Easy Low-Carb Dinner Ideas)

I know what you’re thinking: shouldn’t all steak recipes be keto steak recipes? After all, the keto (ketogenic) diet is all about meat, right? 

Well, yes, and no. All meat is acceptable on the keto diet. However, you have to be sure you cook it properly.

Furthermore, you have to be careful what ingredients you add to it. 

Country-fried steak, for example, may not be keto-compliant, especially if you don’t use the right ingredients.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to cook all cuts of steak that are keto-friendly.

If you don’t know where to start, these 25 keto steak recipes will help. 

1. Garlic Butter Steak

Fortunately, most people’s favorite steak is already a keto-friendly dinner. Good old-fashioned garlic butter steak is universally loved. 

As long as you don’t overcook it, the meat is succulent and tender. And the buttery, garlicky flavor infuses every bite. 

Throw some keto-friendly asparagus in the pan with it. Cooking them together makes the veggies taste so good.

2. Keto Steak With Garlic Butter Mushrooms

This garlicky recipe is similar, though it uses fewer herbs. Additionally, the juicy, chewy mushrooms add more heartiness to it. 

It still tastes fantastic and is just as quick and easy to make. You can have the whole thing ready in less than 30 minutes.

3. Sirloin Steak

It seems impossible that oven-baked steak could taste so incredible. This three-ingredient recipe proves that it can. 

The balsamic marinade gives it the best flavor. Plus, cooking it in the oven means it’s not too greasy.

The butter helps lock in the juiciness, and every bite is perfect.

It’s hard to beat oven-baked sirloin, with its perfectly cooked exterior and a hot pink center.

4. Caprese Steak Salad

If you enjoy Mediterranean flavors, you’re probably a big fan of Caprese salads. Make them even better by adding tender, well-marinated steak. 

You get all the bright, zesty freshness of salad and hearty protein.

It’s an excellent combination. After all, why have steak and salad when you can have steak in a keto salad instead?

5. Spicy Thai Beef Salad

The sweet-n-spicy marinade gives this steak salad an Eastern vibe. It’s absolutely delicious with just enough heat to make you sweat.

Even better, the whole thing takes only 16 minutes to whip up. You need to designate at least 2 hours for the steak to marinate, though.

6. Easy Sheet Pan Fajitas

Even steak fajitas are keto-friendly as long as you forgo the tortillas. They’re easy to make, too.

You can pull them together in 25 minutes with fewer than 10 ingredients. 

They’re high in protein, low in carbs, and delectable. You have to love those robust flavors and that signature sizzle. 

7. Keto Pepper Steak Low-Carb Beef Stir-Fry

Pepper steak stir fry is another 20-minute meal that you won’t want to pass up. It’s a lot like the fajitas, but with an Asian-based sauce mixture.

You won’t use rice. But with the juicy meat and loads of veggies, you won’t even miss it.

If you need a quick, go-to meal for busy nights, give it a try.

8. Grilled Chimichurri Steak Skewers

To make these steak skewers, you need just five things. Skewers are one of them. You also want flank steak, cumin, salt, and pepper. 

Everything else goes into making the chimichurri sauce.

It’s a fresh, bright marinade with a kick from the red pepper flakes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

9. Keto Steak, Cabbage Mash, and Red Wine Gravy

When you think of steak and cabbage mash, what do you picture? Probably something southern and country-like, right? 

Not this delicious keto dinner

It looks like something you’d have in a fancy New York restaurant.

It’s insanely juicy and flavorful and won’t ruin your diet. It’s hard to argue with that. 

10. Sheet Pan Steakhouse Dinner

Full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats, this family dinner is guaranteed to please.

And you can whip the whole thing up on a single sheet pan. Hey, fewer dishes for you! 

It’s buttery and garlicky, and the mushrooms and beans are just as yummy as the steak.

It’s a healthy, hearty meal that’ll have everyone asking for seconds. 

11. Mushroom Swiss Steak and Egg Scramble

There are some difficult things about the ketogenic diet. (Giving up potatoes is hardest for me!)

Fortunately, there are some great things about it, too. Being able to eat steak any time of day guilt-free is one of them.

If you want a big, protein-packed breakfast, give this recipe a try.

It takes 25 minutes to make and gives you thick steak and cheesy scrambled eggs with a ton of hearty mushroom. 

Also, it’ll keep you full until well past lunch. It’s also a nice option for dinner!

12. Air-Fried Steak and Asparagus Bundles

If you haven’t gotten an air fryer yet, get one! They’re just way too convenient not to have.

And using them to make steak and asparagus bundles is a real perk.

You’ll wrap asparagus and peppers in well-marinated lean flank steak.

Season them with balsamic vinegar, butter, and broth. Then, just toss them in the air fryer. 

It takes practically no time or effort, and the results are fantastic. It’s well worth buying the air fryer for this recipe alone. 

13. Keto Beef and Broccoli

Who needs Chinese takeout when you can make beef and broccoli at home? This recipe is spot-on. It’s saucy, succulent, and perfect in every way.

Enjoy it by itself or over a bed of cauliflower rice. Either way, it won’t disappoint. 

14. Air Fryer Steak

What makes the perfect steak? For me, it’s a beautiful brown exterior and a hot, pink interior. It’s well-seasoned and downright juicy in every bite. 

I also like a little bit of salt and garlic on mine. 

This recipe for air fryer steak is my very definition of the perfect steak. It has everything, right down to the seasoning and juiciness.

It also takes less than 20 minutes to prepare and cook. 

It’s probably a good thing I didn’t have an air fryer years ago. I’d have eaten way too many of these by now. 

15. Keto Zucchini Boats with Philly Cheesesteak Stuffing

Are you a keto dieter who’s missing your Philly cheesesteak sandwiches? If so, this is the recipe for you.

There’s no bread, so you won’t have to worry about the carbs. 

Instead, you’ll pile your Philly cheesesteak ingredients into a hollowed-out zucchini.

The texture is slightly different, of course. Zucchini and bread don’t feel the same.

However, the taste is 100% Philly cheesesteak. 

16. Keto Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Of course, zucchini isn’t everyone’s favorite vegetable. If you prefer peppers, make these Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers instead. 

The principle is the same; only the outside vegetable changes. 

17. Bacon Cheese Walnut Crusted Steak

No, you didn’t read that wrong. This steak is crusted with bacon, walnuts, and cheese.

And Good Golly, Miss Molly, is it delicious! Just thinking about it now makes me weak in the knees. 

The steak is succulent, and the topping is crunchy and insanely flavorful.

It’s gluten-free, keto-friendly, and one of the best things you’ll ever put in your mouth. 

Just try it. You won’t ever want to make steak any other way. 

18. Keto Mongolian Beef

Mongolian beef is tasty and easy to make. It’s also simple to make it keto-friendly without losing any flavor. 

It’s a great way to get your daily dose of protein and healthy fats.

Furthermore, it’s incredibly filling and won’t leave you hungry again in a couple of hours. 

The best part about this dish is how versatile it is. You can easily add or omit any ingredients that you don’t like. 

19. Keto Surf and Turf – Steak and Shrimp

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy good surf ‘n turf. Whip up some cauliflower risotto, and you can have a keto-friendly version. 

It’s a robust, herby meal packed with umami goodness.

Plus, the risotto is supremely cheesy and garlicky. You’ll never even miss the “real” rice.

20. Cube Steak Recipe with Gravy (Crockpot or Stove Top)

Like most homemade cubed steak recipes you can quickly make this on the stove or in your Crockpot. It’s saucy and spectacularly scrumptious. 

It uses very few ingredients but still delivers a max amount of flavor. It’s savory and tastes robust and earthy. And you won’t believe how tender it gets! 

You can easily cut it with a fork when it’s ready. It almost falls apart at a touch. 

21. Flank or Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Here’s another excellent recipe for steak with chimichurri sauce.

The overall taste is essentially the same. However, this one is juicier and doesn’t come on a kebab. 

22. Keto Filet Mignon with Mushroom and Mustard Sauce

It’s hard to make filet mignon even more decadent than it is. 

Hard, but not impossible. This recipe allows you to do just that. 

You’ll smother it in a rich mustard and mushroom sauce. It’s thick, creamy, and wonderfully tasty, and you’ll enjoy every bite.

23. Philly Cheesesteak Lettuce Wraps

Philly cheesesteak lettuce wraps are another Philly cheesesteak alternative to the recipes above.

You still get the same great flavors of steak, cheese, and veggies. 

These just come rolled up in a crisp piece of romaine (or iceberg) lettuce. No need to stuff it into a hollowed-out vegetable with these. 

24. Reverse Sear Steak

Technically this recipe is for “plain old steak.” However, there’s nothing plain about it.

Using the reverse sear technique in the recipe makes it phenomenal. 

The method cooks the steak as evenly as possible. It also locks in all the juice and flavor.

It takes a little longer to cook steak this way, but it’s absolutely worth it. 

25. Keto Flank Steak with Garlic & Balsamic Marinade

We started this list with garlic steak, so let’s end it that way, too. This insanely good steak combines garlic, mustard, balsamic vinegar, and more. 

I won’t say it’s the perfect steak marinade. However, if you like juicy, herb-flavored steak, you’ll love it.
