Tri Tip Steak With Roasted Broccoli

We eat a lot of Tri Tip because they are delicious, easy to make and tend to be a leaner cut of beef. We use our smoker and it makes it taste like heaven. Tri Tip is great by itself or it’s very tasty used in cheesesteaks or chopped on salads. My husband, Kyle, is the smoker master. He’s been making these Tri Tips for years but I thought I’d start sharing them with you all.

Tri Tips are usually around 3 or 4 pounds and can be found in your grocery’s meat section. Some stores here in Texas have them near the briskets and some stores you have to get them from the meat counter.

You’ll want to trim any fat or membranes from the Tri Trip before cooking it. Season it with salt, pepper, garlic and chili powder. Preheat your smoker to around 250-300 degrees. Smoke your Tri Tip for 2-2.5 hours or until center hits 160.

We like to make these up ahead of time so it’s easy to have dinners ready quickly during the week. Store it in aluminum foil in its juices until you’re ready to serve it. Slice it thin and enjoy on chopped salads or in bunless recipes like cheesesteaks. It tastes great cold or warm too!

I served it sliced with a side of roasted broccoli and one of Keto Connect’s new biscuits.

Keto Burger Bowls

These burger bowls are awesome for a keto dinner option. You can put everything inside these bowls from cheese to veggies to more meats. The combinations are endless and you’ll be sure to have a home run dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 ounces cheese
  • 3 TBS bacon crumbles

Season ground beef with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Form burger balls and then using a small bowl, form bowls with the meat by spreading it up on the sides. Make sure it’s even all around so the burger will cook evenly. Add your cheese and bacon crumbles (or other toppings) inside the bowl and bake at 350 degrees until meat reaches 160 degrees.

Serve with steamed broccoli or another keto friendly side!

Keto Chicken Kabobs

I love to make chicken kabobs with the random veggies in my fridge. They are easy to make and taste delicious! Serve them with a side salad or steamed green beans for an easy keto dinner recipe. You can switch it up and use different veggies.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of chicken breast, diced
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped

I like to grill them up and serve them with keto ranch dressing or chimichurri sauce.

Fathead Pizza Crust With A Twist

We like to do pizza night on Fridays. We are big fans of the Fathead dough and use the dough in many recipes such as pizza, rolls, calzones, etc. Some folks are not a fan of the Fathead dough and prefer it’s friend, cauliflower pizza crust, instead. I stumbled on this recipe from Low Carb Maven and tried this variation that adds vanilla whey protein powder. Since I am a big fan of Perfect Keto products, I naturally use their vanilla whey protein powder too. ( Use coupon code KETOREWIND15 to get 15% off www.perfectketo.com ) This addition of protein powder does improve the taste and texture of the traditional Fathead crust. So if you were not a fan before, give this variation a try!!

To give proper credit to the recipe creator at Low Carb Maven, please use the link below to see how I made this recipe for myself, Kyle and our kids. You can have dinner on the table in less than 20 mins! Enjoy!
