Keto Beef Teriyaki Japanese inspired recipe
Keto Beef Teriyaki Recipe
This delicious Japanese-inspired recipe would make a great lunch or dinner and is super easy to make. As far as stir-fry go this is my go-to when I’m pressed for time. You can also bulk up the meal by serving it with some cauliflower rice – an excellent alternative to the original!
As for flavour, I’d recommend toasting the sesame seeds before you add it to the dish. This helps bring out the rich, smoky flavour of the sesame.
The cut of beef you use will also have an impact on the flavour and texture of this dish so pick wisely. It’s a little more expensive but I prefer to use a more tender cut of meat, like the sirloin. This allows me to cook the stir-fry quickly without the meat drying out. Tenderloin and top loin steaks are also great cuts to use in this dish. I’d also recommend picking cuts with the fat as the flavour is so much richer and your meat will remain juicier.
The type of oil you use for this recipe will also have an impact on flavour. For this keto teriyaki beef, I used beef fat, which has a high smoking point and infuses the meat with an incredible fragrance.
Finally, don’t rush cooking your meat. The worst thing you can do is overcook the meat as it will end up chewy and flavourless. Even if you fear it might be underdone this is better as the meat will continue to slow cook even after it’s been taken off the heat so don’t worry.
The pinkness of your meat is down to personal preference but I don’t mind a little pink in my beef!

Method for this Keto Beef Teriyaki Recipe
Mix the tamari sauce, applesauce, garlic, nutmeg, garam masala and ginger together and add the sliced meat pieces. Allow the flavours to infuse the meat by leaving it to marinate for at least 15 minutes. If you are meal prepping try leaving it overnight so that the flavour is richer.
Toast your sesame seeds in a hot pan (don’t use any oil for this) until golden. Then remove and set aside.
Heat the beef fat in a large wok and add the mushrooms. Cook until caramelised, then add the beef broth, beef slices and the marinade and continue to cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
Finish by seasoning with Himalayan salt, pepper and sesame oil.
Add the toasted sesame seeds.
Serve with cooked cauliflower rice and garnish with the toasted sesame seeds and fresh herbs.
Ingredient spotlight: Kale
Vegetables are an essential part of any diet and the keto diet is no different. Many people avoid veggies altogether because of their carb content but this can be dangerous as it’s important to keep a balance. As far as low carb vegetables go most dark, leafy greens are a go, including swiss chard, spinach and kale. As well as being a low-carb vegetable, kale is packed with nutrients and vitamins, making it a super-healthy option for meals.

I changed the way I eat in 2011 when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue, conditions where the thyroid is affected. I had no energy, was exhausted, desperate, and my weight had sky-rocketed.
Because of that, I decided to ditch sugars, processed foods, grains, dairy and toxic chemicals. And step-by-step, I introduced a whole-foods-based (first Paleo) and later an AIP (autoimmune protocol) friendly ketogenic approach to food which gave me my life, vitality, happiness and energy back!
Now, through my holistic wellness books and anti-ageing health platform, I want to empower people around the world do the same and regain their health, hair, life, vitality and beauty!
