👨‍🍳 Keto Beef And Green Bean Casserole Ingredients

  • 1lb (450g) Ground Beef
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese (50/50)
  • 3oz (85g) high-quality Cream Cheese
  • 28oz (800g) Canned Green Beans (drained)
  • 0.5 cup Beef Bone Broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

Instructions

Step 1

First of all, start by preheating the oven to 350F (175C). Then, cook the beef in a skillet over medium-high heat on the stovetop.

Make sure to not overcook the beef, as this will make it tough. I recommend using fatty ground beef for this recipe, as it will add flavor and make the dish less dry.

It‘s highly recommended that you drain the grease off your meat by placing it on a paper towel.

Step 2

Return the ground beef to the skillet. Now it‘s time to add the cream cheese. Make sure to mix it well. Pour bone broth, and bring everything to a boil.

Step 3

I found that the best seasonings for this keto green bean hamburger casserole are pretty simple: salt, garlic, black pepper, and a bit of smoked paprika. The latter is optional, but I love the smokey flavor it adds!

Add the seasoning and reduce the heat so it simmers. Let it cook that way for 4-5 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer everything to a baking dish. Add (drained) green beans on top of the meat and spread shredded cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy this great keto green bean hamburger casserole!

Is This Recipe Good For Keto?

This hamburger green bean casserole is 100% keto friendly. Green beans are low in carbs, and so are all the other ingredients in this dish.

The main ingredient in this low-carb green bean casserole recipe is ground beef which is perfect for keto.

I recommend choosing fatty ground beef ( 80/20 or even 70/30) to make sure you get enough fat in your meal.

If you want more variety in your keto diet, definitely try this keto green bean casserole! I am sure you will love it!

Is This Low Carb Green Bean Casserole Healthy?

Yes! the main ingredient in this recipe is ground beef. Most butcher shops (unless you pay for a specific cut) ground “leftovers” from all kinds of cuts.

So, you get the benefits of fatty cuts, as well as rich in collagen cuts like beef shank.

Nowadays, we consume way too little collagen, and our health suffers from it. There are some cuts of meat (like beef shank) that are naturally rich in collagen, and grinding them into your ground beef will help increase the amount of collagen you consume.

Cheese, another ingredient in this recipe, is also very good for you. Cheese is high in calcium, which helps to keep your bones strong. It is also a good source of protein and some essential vitamins.

We also use bone broth in this recipe to make it extra flavorful. Bone broth is also rich in collagen, and contains minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients essential to good health.

Make sure to use high-quality cheese made without any artificial ingredients for the best health benefits. There are plenty of affordable, delicious, and keto-friendly cheeses available at most grocery stores.

Freezing And Reheating

It’s possible to freeze this hamburger green bean casserole, without losing the texture or flavor. You can vacuum seal it and freeze it for up to 6 months.

To reheat, it’s best to allow it to defrost in the fridge overnight, then reheat in the oven. It’s not recommended to use the microwave to reheat this casserole.

Since this green bean keto casserole recipe is so easy, I recommend avoiding freezing and just making a fresh batch as you need it. It should be good to eat within 3-4 days of being made.

Tips And Ideas

This keto green bean ground beef casserole is tasty and will be a hit with the entire family. But, if you want to upgrade it, here are some ideas and tips:

Adding Special Cheese

You can add gorgonzola cheese on top (in addition to the cheddar and mozzarella). This cheese is very strong and has a unique taste, so a little goes a long way.

Gorgonzola cheese is used by many chefs to add a sharp, tangy flavor to dishes.

It can be used in place of other cheeses in recipes, or in addition to them. I personally really like the taste of gorgonzola, so I would add it to this dish.

Using Chicken Broth

This low carb green bean casserole is so juicy and tasty thanks to the beef bone broth we use. But you can also use chicken stock. The taste will be a bit different – some will prefer it more.

You can also try and mix 1/2 cup beef bone broth with 1/2 chicken stock and see if that works for you.

Use Ground Lamb Meat

You can also try and use lamb ground beef instead of ground beef. The taste will change significantly. If you like lamb, then you will love this variation.

In most cases, ground lamb is very fatty, making it great for this keto ground beef and green bean casserole.

Try Different Seasonings

You can try different seasonings to change the flavors of the dish. For example- use pizza seasoning and see how it tastes (your kids will definitely love it).
