My goal was to make a new favourite easy keto beef lasagna. It had to be easy with a minimal amount of fuss and I think I managed that.

To my fellow Aussie’s forgive me for use of lasagna vs lasagne. I hate that the English-speaking world create various spellings of the same word but I am trying to appeal to everyone. Internationally speaking lasagna wins online. So, anyway let’s get to how to make my very easy keto beef lasagna.

Easy 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 easy keto beef lasagna, keto chicken lasagna or even a fabulous keto mushroom lasagna. (even I would eat just mushrooms in this).

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 swapfor 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.

    I don’t mind the lasagna spelling as, after all, it’s an Italian word anyway, let them fight it out, but “ground” beef instead of “mince(d) beef” is horribly un-Australian! 😉

    Looks great, will definitely give a go if I can make that blasted “pasta”, that kind of cooking is definitely out of my league – AT THE MOMENT – but nothing ventured nothing gained eh?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Percy, sorry for any offence. As mentioned in the blog post as an international website and google preferences I swapped the spelling and terms for mince within the recipe. The hardest thing for us Aussies is to realise the rest of the world do not search the same ways as us. My aim is to be more international as a business, hence the adoption of lasagna rather than lasagne and ground beef over beef mince. Trust me that if you have ever heard me talk you will know I am totally an “ocker” Aussie only hoping for the forgiveness of my much loved fellow Aussies.

    I really enjoyed this lasagna but the ‘pasta’ sheet has been a revelation. I squish it flat into tortilla/wraps, then use it for enchiladas & quesadilla. It freezes great and is always on stock in my freezer for lunch wraps & chapati for curries. Really versatile, thanks so much for the recipe!

  • Teagan says:

    This is the best tasting lasagne I’ve ever had but every time I make it it’s so runny and almost like a soup, any idea why?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      It is because of the lack of tomato paste (loads of carbs) it is best made the day ahead and the when reheated isnt soupy as the pasta soaks up the extra liquid. You can choose to reduce the bolognese a lot before layering.

    I make a double batch every time I make your bolognese sauce .
    One non keto for my partner and the other lasagna is mine that is full Keto.
    My partner gets the same sauce as me.
    It’s actually his favourite bolognese sauce in the whole wide world.

  • Mike says:

    Megan thank you for incorporating Instant Pot recipes. I have just bought an all in one and have been looking for low carb recipes. I have a five of your books, and will have to check out some of your others for all instant pot recipes.

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      No worries Mike. I love my Instant Pot. Next year there will be a cookbook filled with recipes for it.
