Cheesesteak risotto is a quick and easy recipe that anyone can prepare. full of all of the flavors of a true Philly cheesesteak without the carbs
20 minutes, One Pan, Perfect Easy Keto Recipe
During the week, everyone is busy with life’s many commitments. You don’t always have time to make a dish with multiple components, you’ve got one pan and 20 minutes. This recipe for Cheesesteak Risotto is so easy to make for a weeknight meal or meal prep.
This recipe requires almost zero prep, sliced scallions are the only thing that’s not already prepared. You can substitute ground beef or another thinly sliced steak if you don’t want to use steak umms but I have a soft spot for this nostalgic frozen product. Trader Joe’s has a fresh thinly sliced Ribeye that is fantastic as a higher quality option.
Why I like to combine Miracle Rice and Riced Cauliflower
The combination of Riced Cauliflower and Miracle Rice gives the recipe a textural blend. It also really bulks up the dish without adding a lot of calories or carbs. If you don’t like the texture of Miracle Rice this is the perfect recipe for you. Once you cook the miracle rice with the cauliflower you don’t even notice it’s there. For an extra kick I put a tablespoon of Calabrian Chiles on top as a flavorful garnish. Bobby Flay uses this spicy Chile in everything!!
Cooking Keto Meals For One
As a single guy that cooks everyday I know that preparing meals for one can be tough. I also have to photograph my meals for the blog before I can eat. I normally make the recipe, photograph the recipe and then portion out the dish and keep one portion out to eat. That way I don’t overeat and have the perfect portion for my macros. Other similar easy to portion include my Cheesesteak Breakfast Casserole and Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto
I’m a fan of Philly cheesesteaks and I know the purists will say that cheese whiz is the only way a cheesesteak should be made. Others will claim that melted provolone or American cheese is superior. Leave a comment below and tell me what cheese you think is best on a cheesesteak.
