Lazy Keto Meals with Ground Beef
One of my favorite lazy keto meals for busy work nights is Korean Bowls. The ingredients are simple, but the meal is superb. This low-carb beef bowl is seriously one of my favorite go-to meals and we eat it a few times a month.
I like to top this off with a fried egg, which is optional, but the protein in the egg will keep you full for a long time.
This delicious Keto Korean Beef Bowl takes 35 minutes to make. If you feel especially lazy, you can buy pre-cut-up vegetables or use ONE vegetable to keep things simple. I’ve made this recipe using only cabbage, which turned out amazing.

This easy keto big mac salad has all the flavors of a big mac but none of the guilt! This salad may seem a little strange, but it will soon become a family favorite!
The recipe calls for a Big Mac dressing that goes together quickly and calls for only seven ingredients you probably already have on hand.
- Minced Dill Pickle
- Yellow Mustard
- Apple Cidar Vinegar
- Onion Powder
Browned ground beef is combined with salt, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Layer chopped-up lettuce, seasoned browned beef, and a homemade dressing. Top with diced dill pickles, red onion, and some shredded cheese. The results are delicious and keto-friendly!

Sausage Keto Lazy Meals
This recipe is one of my favorite keto bowl recipes! The recipe calls for eight ingredients, including sausage, cabbage, and spices. Keto crack topped with a fried egg makes the BEST KETO DINNER!
This keto crack slaw is also one of my easy keto lunch ideas. However, if you take this for your work lunch, I recommend storing the fried egg separately from the crack slaw. This helps with warming up your lunch so that the egg isn’t overcooked.

This keto spaghetti meat sauce with linguica is made from scratch. The “noodles” are cabbage, and the results are so delicious!
The recipe takes only 30 minutes to make from start to finish. Leftovers make fantastic work lunches.
