Serve over cauliflower rice for a delicious low carb meal.
This easy meal can be on the table in under 20 minutes. It’s a wonderfully salty dish with a touch of sweetness from the coconut milk and cashews.
Since ground beef is used instead of steak, this recipe is really economical.
Time-Saving Tip– While the ground beef is cooking, measure and chop the other ingredients.
To make this Keto Cashew Beef dish spicy, serve with Sriracha sauce or you can add 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the stir fry.
The veggies used in this recipe are totally customizable. Leave out any you don’t like and use more of the other veggies or add a little broccoli, cauliflower, or some snow peas. Bamboo shoots can be used instead of water chestnuts.
Leftovers will keep for about 4 days in an airtight container, but the cashews will loose their crunchiness.
