I really wanted to make a truly delicious keto lasagna that everyone would love. This is one recipe I reckon your whole family is going to adopt as a new favourite. It isn't hard to recreate and tastes so damn good.
Keto Beef Lasagna in a pan

My goal was to make a new favourite keto beef lasagna recipe. It had to be easy with a minimal amount of fuss and had to br crazy delicious! I think I have managed that. This is one of my favourite keto dinner recipes and I am sure you are going to love it too!

Keto Beef Lasagna Ingredients

Fats – Butter and oil. Both help to add loads of great flavour to the mushrooms and onions. For dairy free substitute either more oil or ghee.

Pork and Veal Mince. I love this combination of two ground meats. It really adds flavor  to any kind of bolognese. You can, of course, exchange for your personal choice and make this your own keto beef lasagna recipe, or a keto chicken lasagna using Chicken Bolognese.

Herbs and Spices. I use sweet paprika, oregano (dried), fresh rosemary, a cinnamon quill, tomato powder (purely optional) and salt and pepper, to season. Honestly, if you want to add more spice like chillies, cayenne, or some thyme or Italian herbs go for your life. Just bear in mind that the more you add the more the carbs creep up. For an easy swap for all the seasonings, you can use our Italian Seasoning Substitute recipe if you prefer.

Red wine. Now if you don’t drink it or don’t want it just leave it out. I would recommend adding half a cup of beef stock or bone broth particularly if you are using an Instant Pot®. Without the extra liquid you might get the Burn warning. Let me tell you my Instant Pot® easy keto beef lasagna is my fave out of all 3 methods. So fast so easy and I can work while it does the work.

Tomatoes. To be honest I am still a fan of a nice keto beef and tomato bolognese. However, I also love ground beef cooked in broth/stock.

How to Make The best Keto Bolognese Sauce

In the method of the Easy Keto Beef Lasagna I have given you 3 methods of cooking. There is so many ways but hey I gave you 3 so that is pretty special. lol.

I am really loving making Instant Pot® bolognese or ragu for dishes like this. Using the pressure cook function makes this so easy and the results are perfection. Now if you have a Ninja Foodie, or a Phillips all in one, Tefal cook 4 me etc. All these multi-cookers will do the same thing just follow the instructions below and adapt them to the small changes of buttons on your machines. Times should not change for the cooking though.

Making a Thermomix® beef lasagna recipe work takes a little longer cooking time but still turns out great. Cooking the keto white sauce recipe is a breeze in the thermo as well as the pasta.

Making bolognese on the stovetop is something most of us have possibly done at one point in our lives. Just don’t forget to control the temperature and use a timer so you do not overcook or burn.

How to Make Lasagna Noodles/Pasta

I am a big fan of my very basic lasagna pasta recipe.

Ensure you mix the ingredients really well. I use psyllium husk powder not the husks. Leave the mix to rest for 10 minutes before bringing out your inner child and painting it thinly onto the prepared baking paper. 

Cover with another sheet of baking paper and bake 10 minutes. Cut in half and you have the best keto lasagna pasta sheets.

Putting it all together

Simply scoop half of the bolognese into the bottom of your pan. 

Cover with one sheet of pasta and top with half of the white sauce. Add some extra cheese if you want a gooey cheesy lasagna.

Repeat the layers and finish with a thick layer of white sauce. Cover with foil.

Bake 30 minutes at 180℃. I use a fan-forced temperature oven.

Remove foil and sprinkle with cheese and bake a further 5 minutes or until cheese is nicely golden.

All to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

What to Serve with Keto Beef Lasagna?
I love a simple salad with lasagna. Try it with something easy like Arabic Salad, Taboule Salad, or even a big spoonful of Guacamole. For something warm try our Green Beans and Cauliflower Mash.

    I am excited to try this recipe. Just curious I went to your lasagna recipe and I didn’t see the vinegar in that recipe for the lasagna noodles. Did you make the lasagna recipe after this one and decided the vinegar wasn’t needed?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      I use the vinegar, I think I just missed it in the update

      1. How much vinegar is needed for the pasta please; plus I see a cinnamon stick but in reading the recipe I don’t see it being used. Please advise.

    A beautiful easy to follow recipe. I make mine with a beef and pork mix. The lasagne sheets are brilliant and you can spread the mix as thin as you like. The family who are not low carb always come back for seconds. Freezes well too. Whats not to love about this recipe!
