Quick Keto Beef Ragu with Zoodles

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1If you're using frozen meat, keep it outside the fridge to slowly defrost.

Step 2Place the meat in a hot pan greased with ghee (keep some ghee for cooking zoodles) and cook for 5-8 minutes or until browned from all sides.

Step 3Add red pesto, freshly chopped parsley, salt and cook on medium heat for 3-5 more minutes. When done take off the heat and transfer into a bowl.

Step 4Meanwhile, using a spiralizer, create zucchini "noodles". Chop the soft core of the zucchini and add it to the zoodles.

Step 5If you don't have a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler and peel the zucchini all around until you get to the soft centre.

Step 6Transfer the zoodles into the saucepan greased with the remaining ghee. Cook briefly for 2-5 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the meat and mix in well. The exact time depends on how tender you prefer the zoodles to be. The less you cook them, the more "al dente" and the less soggy they will be.

Step 7Serve immediately or store the ragu in the fridge for up to a 4 days. The zoodles are best prepared fresh as they tend to get soft.
