Green bean soup with beef is rich and tasty keto stew. Beef and green beans in healthy low carb family friendly soup recipe. This is keto recipe for a large family!
My son is a picky eater and I have a lot of challenges with planning our family friendly keto meals. I need to think about all my family members and cook something to cover all our needs with the same low carb cooked meal.
Few days ago my husband asked me to cook something to eat with a spoon, with veggies. Some keto or low carb soup or stew. I was so happy to hear this idea. Always during the spring we have that vegetable soup craving. It's probably the way how our nature is functioning. During the winter we crave for bacon and fatty meat parts, goulash and similar. When spring days come, vegetable time and spring cleaning start!
Spring time food with veggies
So I was thinking of keto soup with veggies. However, I'm busy working mom, I don't have time to cook few meals on the same day. One meal has to nourish our whole family. This green bean soup recipe with beef is a wonderful creation! This is keto meal to make ahead, to cook for the whole week and store in the fridge or even freeze. This is one of these meals that are even better when you reheat them or eat on another day.
I really enjoy making keto and nourishing recipes for family. In this keto soup with green beans and beef there are other veggies like capsicum, little onion and carrot and crushed tomatoes.
It's loaded with vegetables and meat and so tasty so even your little ones will love it.
TIPS FOR MAKING LOW CARB GREEN BEAN SOUP
FRYING ONION is so important step in preparing this type of soups and stews. My advice is to always start with caramelizing onion on olive oil or lard until it's translucent and golden brown. That will give deep and rich flavor.
COOKING IN INSTANT POT
I was cooking this green bean soup in instant pot. I fried onion and browned meat, add other ingredients and cooked everything together in instant pot for 45 minutes.
Of course you can cook classical way. In that case cook covered until meat is softened and after that add green beans and cook for 20 to 30 minutes more.
