Here is another quick lunch idea that takes 5 minutes to prepare!  I love tuna salad and it’s a great keto meal that has plenty of protein and fat.  Here is what you’ll need.

  • 2.6 Oz Container Tuna
  • 2 Tbsp Mayonaise (Full fat!)
  • Pickles (I used spears here cut in chunks.  Normally I use Vlassic Dill Relish)
  • Mortons Lite Salt to Taste
  • Onion Power to Taste (About Half a Tsp)
  • Pepper to Taste
  • Heinz Malt Vinegar (Optional.  I put a few dashes in because I love vinegar!)

Measure out 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise and place in bowl.  Add your vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, pickles and tuna.  Mix well.  Depending on how much vinegar and juice from the pickles it can be a bit runny.  Enjoy!

Garlic and Butter Round Steak Salad

Garlic and Butter Round Steak Salad

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz Round Steak
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • One Serving Hearts of Romain Lettuce
  • 1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Keto Friendly Vegetables of Your Choice (I used White Button Mushrooms)
  • Two Servings Low Carb Salad Dressing
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

This recipe is a simple one but it’s delicious. Take one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of minced garlic (I use the kind from a jar.) and combine them in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted and the garlic is warmed take 4 oz of round steak (Sometimes called skillet steaks.) and use kitchen shears to cut it into strips. Place the steak into the skillet and season with pepper and some Mortons Lite Salt. Once your steak is fully cooked spread it over a bed of romaine hearts. Toss 1/4 cup whole milk mozzarella cheese over the steak.  This way it gets all melty and delicious.  Make sure you drain the butter/juices left in the skillet over your meat and cheese! Garnish your steak salad with whatever Keto friendly vegetables and dressing you like. I used sliced raw white button mushrooms and two servings of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing. If you really want to kick up the flavor add a few dashes of dry spice mixture on top. I used Weber’s Kick’N Chicken in this photo for a little spice!
