Easy Meals that anyone can make in Minutes

Here’s another quick and easy recipe that’s not only delicious but filling. You only need four total ingredients and I used my new air fryer oven to sear my blackened beef tips & sausage. You can pair this with any keto dipping sauce like bleu cheese, ranch or a flavored mayo.

Sirloin Beef Tips are the perfect cheap meal on a budget

Beef tips are a tasty quick protein packed meal that I can't get enough of.  Sirloin is a relatively cheap cup that’s full of flavor. You can substitute more expensive cuts like strip loin or filet but sirloin is definitely your best bang for your buck. You can normally find kabob meat or cubed sirloin at your local butcher or grocery store. Sometimes I will cut a whole beef tenderloin and have leftovers that I cube up and cook as well. If I cut tenderloin for a special dinner you can normally reserve about a pound or two of small pieces that I’ll freeze for another meal.

Black & Bleu Seasoning From Spiceology

When it comes to seasoning I am a big fan of the spice company Spiceology. You’ve probably heard me talk about them on Instagram or Facebook because I’m constantly trying new spices. One of my absolute favorites is their black & bleu blend. It’s the perfect combination of a classic Cajun seasoning with the added funky flavor of powdered bleu cheese. I use this blend on literally everything from pork to chicken to shrimp and it’s great on all of them. If you don't have Black & Bleu on hand just use any Cajun Seasoning

You might be asking why sausage and beef together. Well the fact of the matter is I had a few links of sausage in the fridge and I needed to cook them up. I love all the different varieties of sausage but spicy Italian might be my favorite. Turns out cooking the beef tips and sausage together was a pretty awesome combination. You’ve got tender beefy sirloin with the spicy robust pork so it’s really nice to have different flavors in each bite. I get bored with one note dinners so this kept my taste buds guessing making my meal much more enjoyable.

Air Fryer Oven...Set it and Forget It

The air fryer oven might be the most convenient appliance I’ve ever owned. You can cook so many different things from wings to to veggies and everything in between. I find myself using it anytime I don’t feel like cooking. You can simply throw anything in the air fryer,hit a button and walk away. If you’re looking for gourmet perfection this isn’t for you but it’s far and above the quality of food you would get from a microwave meal.

It does a great job putting a crust on meats and searing in the juices. I find that air fryer meals are fantastic for weeknight meals when you don’t have time to cook dinner from scratch.

Dipping Sauces to add Fat to fit your Macros

Meals like this are high protein but sometimes you need to add fats to reach your macros. Beef tips and sausage are great for dipping in all sorts of sauces. If you need extra fat you can use my favorites like bleu cheese or sour cream. If you just need flavor then I recommend using a bbq sauce like AlternaSweets.
