Ground beef, aka beef mince or minced beef, is one of my favorite ingredients. It is cheap, easy, and incredibly versatile. Whether you buy it from the butcher or supermarket, or make your own, it is a high-protein simple ingredient that can be used in many recipes.

What is the Best Minced Beef to Use?

When it comes to keto-friendly ground beef recipes, I opt for lean or extra lean ground beef mince. This ensures you’re getting the protein without the excess fat, keeping your macros in check. If you prefer a fattier mix then you do you. Sometimes a fattier combination is perfect for adding more flavour and tenderness e.g. making homemade sausages or chevups.

Minced beef or ground beef, is also known as beef mince or hamburger meat and is generally available from most butchers or supermarkets. Some products may have fillers, however, the vast majority of minced beef is simply meat only with no additives, making it gluten-free and keto-friendly.

Preparing and Storing Ground Beef

Preparing ground beef for recipes is simple. Just brown it in a skillet over medium heat until fully cooked, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks. Remember to drain any excess fat for a leaner dish. It can be used in the slow cooker, pressure cooker e.g. Instant Pot recipes, skillet, grill, baked, Thermomix, and so many other cooking methods. It is easily one of my favorite ingredients to use.

When it comes to storing, cooked ground beef can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days, or frozen for longer-term storage.

    Ahhh! The versatile mince. When l was a young mum with 4 kids, one of them remarked ” Not mince again”. It was one of the most affordable meats and went a long way in a recipe. I remember having a cookbook of 100 ways to cook mince. Now there is just hubby and l in the house and we still love mince dishes. Spaghetti bol being his favourite. Thank you Megan for converting most of them to be keto friendly.
