KETO PLATED HACK: STEAK STIR-FRY WITH ZUCCHINI, BASIL, MIRACLE RICE AND TOPPED WITH CASHEWS


I credit services like Blue Apron and Plated with really igniting my love of cooking. A few years back I started subscribing to Blue Apron and it really changed my perspective on flavor combinations and opened my eyes to all of the different global flavors I could introduce into my everyday cooking. Fast forward to today, 20 months into my keto way of eating and I am still able to enjoy cooking with these services from time to time. 

What I have discovered is that Plated works the best for me and their recipes often allow me to make a few "Keto Hacks" and turn one of their recipes into something that works for me. There are plenty of weeks when I skip and don't order, just because they are meals I am not interested in or they can't be easily "hacked", but when there are good options I get excited! 

This meal was one of the easiest hacks to date, all I had to do was swap our brown rice with Miracle Rice and I also added bacon grease into the equation:)

I only changed a few things: 

  • I sauteed my zucchini in sesame oil, but also some bacon grease 
  • I also seared the steaks in bacon grease instead of Canola Oil 
  • For the sauce I used my Trader Joe's ginger paste and minced garlic instead of the fresh that came with the meal. 
  • I drizzled Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil on top for more quality fats (I do with this with pretty much everything I cook at home).

 

You can find Miracle Rice on my "shop" page via either their website or Amazon, links to both can be found on the shop page

That's it! Super easy tweaks! In case you are not familiar with Oyster Sauce here are the details!

Here are the macros to the best of my estimation, per serving (I made 2 servings). I also added the Brain Octane Oil, which added fat and calories.
