A quick and easy pepper steak beef stir fry dinner with optional baby corn. It’s a simple meal that great for busy weeknights.


▢1 tablespoon sesame oil or avocado oil

▢1 pound sirloin steak cut into thin strips

▢1 clove garlic minced

▢salt and pepper to taste

▢1 medium green bell pepper cut into strips

▢¼ cup onion chopped

▢½ cup beef broth

▢2 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari

▢¼ teaspoon xanthan gum add more if needed (optional thickener)

▢15 ounces baby corn optional


Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Add the beef strips and garlic; cook until the beef is browned. Once done, season to taste with salt and pepper, and remove from skillet.

Adde additional oil to the skillet if needed. Cook pepper and onion in skillet until they are tender.

Add the broth, soy sauce, mushrooms, and optional xanthan gum and baby corn (if using).

Cook and stir until mushrooms are softened.

Stir in the beef and continue cooking until heated throughout.


Baby corn will add another 1-2 grams net carbs per serving. Other keto friendly vegetables like broccoli can be added or used in place of the peppers and or mushrooms.

For a thick sauce, sprinkle in about ¼ to ½ teaspoon xanthan gum. Adding in about a 1 to 3 teaspoons of coconut flour or almond flour to the soy sauce before adding may also work.

Flank steak is a popular cut to use in beef stir fry so it can be used instead of the sirloin.

Low-Carb Mac and Cheese Recipe (keto, gluten-free)

This post may contain Amazon affiliate links. I earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you) when you purchase using one of those links. I only recommend products I use and love. Thanks for supporting Stem and Spoon.

This is the low carb mac and cheese recipe you’ve been waiting for. A creamy, white cheddar sauce and tender low-carb pasta (no cauliflower florets here!) bake until bubbly. Covered with a crispy topping, there’s incredible flavor and texture in every bite.

Heavy cream, white cheddar cheese and Parmesan come together to make a deliciously creamy cheese sauce. Combine that cheesy goodness with a low-carb pasta and you’ve got the ultimate comfort food that tastes just like the real thing!

Why this recipe works

Let’s be honest, keto cauliflower mac and cheese is just not mac and cheese.

Which is why I was so excited to be gifted Kaizen Food Company’s low-carb lupin bean pasta to try out. My mind immediately went to macaroni and cheese. One that doesn’t involve cauliflower. 😉

I’m thrilled to finally share a low carb mac and cheese recipe here on the blog that doesn’t taste like a compromise.

The main ingredient for a good keto mac and cheese is a superb low-carb pasta and in my honest opinion, none are comparable to the taste and texture of Kaizen’s lupin bean pasta.

Not only is it a plant-based and gluten-free pasta, but it also has an impressive nutritional profile: high in fiber, high in protein, low in carbs, only 6 grams of net carbs per serving (which blows other “low-carb” pastas out of the water).

It’s a healthy, keto diet friendly ingredient that will satisfy when those pasta cravings hit. And you can easily swap in Kaizen pasta for traditional pasta to make low-carb versions of your favorite recipes.

the perfect balance of creamy noodles with a crispy, pork rind topping

a baked mac and cheese recipe without flour which makes it gluten-free and keto-friendly!

Overhead shot of low-carb mac and cheese in a baking dish with crispy topping.

Three different cheeses, heavy cream and the perfect mix of savory seasonings mixed with keto macaroni is just irresistible and has every potential to become one of your favorite foods.

The crispy pork rind topping is similar to the keto “breadcrumbs” that I use in my meatloaf and air fryer cauliflower. You can certainly omit it but I think it makes this low-carb mac and cheese recipe a bit more elevated. Plus, creamy, cheesy noodles with a crispy topping is the combo for a wonderful mouthfeel.

This keto mac and cheese recipe really only requires three easy steps: boil the noodles, make the cream sauce, bake the mac and cheese. Simple, delicious and comforting.

YIELD: 4-6 servings

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Additional Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

A creamy white cheddar sauce, tender low-carb noodles and a crispy pork rind topping bake until bubbly. This low-carb mac and cheese recipe is comfort food without compromises!


8 ounces Kaizen Food Company pasta

3 tablespoons butter

1-¼ cups whipping cream

¼ cup full-fat sour cream

1-½ cups grated white cheddar cheese

½ cup grated mild cheddar cheese

½ cup grated Gruyère or (more white cheddar)

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon pepper

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ cup crushed pork rinds

2 tablespoons grated parmesan

1 tablespoon almond flour

1 teaspoon olive oil


Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Fill a medium pot with water and bring it to a boil. Cook the Kaizen pasta for 7-8 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and transfer to a baking dish. Set aside.

In the same pot, melt the butter and add the cream and sour cream. Stir the mixture and heat for about 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Stir frequently.

Turn the heat to low and stir in the white cheddar, mild cheddar and Gruyére. Mix in the salt, pepper, thyme and nutmeg. Stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce thickens.

Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix until all of the pasta is well-coated in the cheese sauce.

Mix together the crushed pork rinds, grated parmesan, almond flour and olive oil (or pulse a few times in a food processor). Crumble the mixture on top of the pasta.

Transfer the baking dish to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.


You can substitute the white cheddar and cheddar cheese with your favorite cheese varieties. For a sharper cheddar flavor, use 2 cups white cheddar and omit the mild cheddar. For a milder cheesy flavor, use half white cheddar and half mild cheddar. Grated mozzarella and Fontina are also a good swap for Gruyére.

If you’d like to mellow out the richness of the cheese sauce, youcan use ¾ cup heavy cream with ½ cup unsweetened almond milk.

The crispy topping is optional. If you feel like skipping that step, simply bake the low-carb mac and cheese until it is hot and bubbly, about 15 minutes.

To easily crush pork rinds, place several in a Ziploc bag, then use a rolling pin to break them down into crumbs. Save any extra in the pantry for another use!

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven at 300°F until heated through.

Baked Cabbage Steak Recipe

This Roasted Cabbage is the perfect healthy side dish! Ready in 30 minutes, requires very little effort and cleanup, and has under 4 net carbs per serving!

For a side dish this delicious, you’ll be amazed it’s so easy and healthy! This Roasted Cabbage is coated in seasoning and roasted at a high temperature for beautifully crispy edges. These cabbage steaks are perfectly tender and would be an amazing side dish for nearly any entrée!

This requires only four ingredients (plus salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes if you want them), so this can be thrown together easily! You can customize the seasonings based on your preference, making this a fantastic, simple dish on a busy weeknight. 

This dish will add a ton of flavor and nutrients without many calories or carbs! It’s great for keto meal prep and extremely versatile. You can even turn it into a sheet pan meal by cooking this ! Just pop it into the oven for 15-20 minutes, then add your cabbage and cook as directed. This makes a super impressive, healthy dish for just 4.5 net carbs total!

Can I make this ahead of time?

I enjoy this most fresh out of the oven because the crispy edges are my favorite part. After it has been stored in the fridge, you’ll lose a lot of this crispiness. However, if you reheat this in the air fryer, you can get some of that crispiness back without completely overcooking the cabbage. 

If you’d like to meal prep this but cook it fresh, you can easily cut and season the wedges, then store them in the fridge until ready to cook. I would not leave them in the fridge longer than a day or two as the cut pieces can dry out or brown a little over time.

How to Store & Reheat Roasted Cabbage Steaks

Once cooked, allow the roasted cabbage to completely cool before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. It will last up to 5 days in the fridge, but you can extend the life of the cabbage by freezing it up to 3-6 months. When freezing, it’s best to tightly wrap with foil or plastic wrap before storing in a freezer bag.

When reheating, there are several ways to warm up your cabbage. You can microwave it if you prefer soft cabbage, but here are the best ways to enjoy crispy edges:

Air Fryer: 400 degrees F for about 3 minutes

Oven: 450 degrees F 5-8 minutes (reheating on a rack in a pan might result in crispier edges)

Skillet: Medium high heat, about 2 minutes per side.

If you have frozen the cabbage, make sure to allow it to thaw before reheating. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of extra moisture after freezing, so you may not be able to get super crispy edges when reheating previously frozen cabbage.

What to Serve with Roasted Cabbage Wedges

I absolutely LOVED this roasted cabbage with the (as pictured above), but you could serve this with many different types of dishes! Consider serving with a for a great keto-friendly dinner, just 6.5 net carbs total. For a super kid-friendly meal, this would be fantastic with and … And you’d still stay under 10 net carbs! 


PREP TIME: 5 minutes

COOK TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 25 minutes


1/2 medium head of cabbage, cut into 6 wedges

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

Slice half of a head of cabbage into 6 wedges

Lightly spray a casserole dish or rimmed baking sheet.

Low-Carb French Garlic Chicken Recipe

This is a great low carb chicken recipe that takes less than 30 minutes start to finish but is elegant enough to serve.

It’s a very simple French Garlic Chicken recipe that combines juicy chicken thighs with dijon mustard, garlic, and a mixture of spices to make a French-inspired dish that is as delicious as it looks.







2 teaspoons Herbes de Provence

2 tablespoon Olive oil

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1 tablespoon Minced Garlic

1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs boneless skinless


2 tablespoons Butter

8 cloves Chopped Garlic

1/4 cup Water

1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream


Mix all the ingredients for the marinade, using a wire whisk to emulsify the oil and vinegar together.

Add in chicken thighs and allow it to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. If you need to marinate for longer, put in the refrigerator.


When you are ready to cook, heat a heavy-bottomed pan. When it is hot, add the butter and allow it to melt.

Add chopped garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add in the chicken leaving behind as much of the marinade as you can. Do not discard the marinade.

Cook the chicken thighs so that they can lightly brown on one side, 3-5 minutes.

Add the marinade and 1/4 cup water.

Cover the pot and allow it to cook for 10 minutes, turning the thighs halfway through.

Using a meat thermometer, ensure an internal temperature of 165f.

Remove the chicken on to a plate and add 1/4 cup cream into the pot, mixing well with the liquid in the pot.

As soon as the sauce thickens, pour it onto the chicken thighs and serve.


When you are ready to cook, turn your Instant Pot to Sauté and when it is hot, add the butter and allow it to melt.

Add chopped garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add in the chicken leaving behind as much of the marinade as you can. Do not discard the marinade.

Cook the chicken thighs so that they can lightly brown on one side, 3-5 minutes.

Add the marinade and 1/4 cup water.

Close the instant pot and set it to cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes. Allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes, and then release all remaining pressure.

Remove the chicken on to a plate and add 1/4 cup cream into the pot, mixing well with the liquid in the pot.

As soon as the sauce thickens, pour it onto the chicken thighs and serve.

Prep Ahead

If you have time to marinate the chicken, it will be that much more tender, but you don’t have to. You can let the chicken marinate for anything from 30 minutes to up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

You can marinate the chicken, and freeze the marinade and chicken together. That way, when you’re ready to cook, simply brown the garlic in butter, throw in the frozen chicken and marinade (skipping the step where you sear the chicken), and just cook it in the Instant pot.

Double Up

You can double up on the sauce ingredients, and save some of the extra sauce to serve over asparagus or other steamed vegetables.

You could add in a cup or so of mushrooms to this dish and have a more complete meat and vegetable dish in one go.

Adapt for different diets

This is a keto Instant Pot chicken recipe–but really that has nothing to do with anything. What it is, is a SUPER TASTY low carb chicken recipe.

If you are dairy-free or kosher, use coconut milk or coconut cream for the cream, and coconut or olive oil for the butter.

If you are vegetarian, use a hearty vegetable like butternut squash or even turnips instead of the chicken.

If you are allergic to Lavender, you can either find a lavender-free Herbes de Provence or use a mixture of dried thyme, oregano, rosemary, and marjoram.

If you don’t have Herbes de Provence, sub Italian blend herbs or even Greek blend herbs for a slightly different taste

Go easy on the salt in this recipe. I have reduced it to 1/2 teaspoon based on reader feedback

Low-Carb Keto Pound Cake Recipe Tips
  • Before baking, I always recommend you take out your wet ingredients and allow them to come to room temperature; in this case, that would mean cream cheese, butter, and eggs. I also measure out all the dry ingredients to help speed up the process.
  • Although not required, lining the pan with parchment paper will make it easier to remove the cake and add it to a cooling rack.
  • You’ll want to use an electric mixer or stand mixer in order to fully incorporate your ingredients. Also, be sure to scrape the bowl several times in the process to make sure all the ingredients are mixed properly.
  • Your baking time will depend on the size pan you use and whether you have opted to double the recipe. For an 8-inch loaf, bake for approximately 35-40 minutes.
  • If you double the recipe, you will need to bake it for anywhere between 50-70 minutes, depending on your oven, and use at least a 10-inch loaf pan. This recipe also makes keto pound cake muffins. It makes 12 regular-sized cupcakes.
  • When making cupcakes, bake them for 20-25 minutes. And if you opt for a bundt pan, it will need to be a small one unless you are doubling the recipe.
  • For a small bundt cake (8 cup capacity), bake for 35-40 minutes, and for a large one (12 cup capacity), bake for 60-70 minutes. Be sure to check out my keto baking tips for more of my proven advice.

  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (3 g) Greek seasoning (see notes below)
  • 1⁄4 tsp sea salt

  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • Zest of 1 medium lemon
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp (8 g) minced fresh dill
  • Sea salt, as needed
  • Black pepper, as needed
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced fresh oregano
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 large Persian cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup (150 g) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1⁄2 cup (58 g) thinly sliced red onion
  • 1⁄3 cup (33 g) pitted Kalamata olives
  • 4 oz (112 g) feta cheese, crumbled


  1. To make the chicken, combine the chicken, oil, lemon juice, vinegar, Greek seasoning, and salt in a sealable container.
  2. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  3. To make the tzatziki, stir together the yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, dill, salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl.
  4. Refrigerate the tzatziki until you are ready to serve.
  5. Heat a 10-inch (25-cm) or larger cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and marinade to the skillet.
  6. Cook the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until it is brown and its internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

  9. Pour the red wine vinegar dressing over the bowls and top each bowl with the tzatziki just before serving.


You can buy ready-made Greek seasoning like this or this one (more exy but a nicer brand in my opinion). You can also make your own by mixing salt, pepper, dried oregano, dried thyme or rosemary, garlic powder, paprika and cinnamon.

Cooking times above don’t include the time for marinating the chicken which can be anywhere between 10-15 minutes and overnight. The longer you leave it, the more flavour it will have.
