Why share Keto Steak Dinner Ideas?
Steak is a great meal, that can seem fancy if done right. You will impress your guests or even your sweetie for a date night in.
Picky kids might even go for these meals, especially if you let them select their own dips (yes, even if it’s something like ketchup!).
People on a “diet” will often default to chicken or fish. While those are obviously healthy options, don’t discount red meat!
Many people think of “meat and potatoes” as a classic meal, but you can make some delicious Keto sides and gravies and be pleased with how well steak fits your lifestyle. I made sure to include many different cooking styles and flavor profiles below so that steak fits your every whim!
How to Cook Steak
- Juicy steak, what we are all looking to achieve, comes down to temperature! The cooking method is just a means to the end.
- I prefer “medium” to “medium well,” for food safety and texture. Feel free to follow this guide, but make sure you are using a meat thermometer!
Some Tools to Cook Steak
There are many others, but here are two that I consider essentials.
Sides Dishes that go well with these Keto Steak Recipes
If you’re going for a complete steakhouse meal, then my favorite keto-friendly side dish is Creamed Spinach. This side takes only 15 minutes to make and is super rich and creamy.

Alternatively, if you’re going for something simple, then these Sautéed Green Beans fit the bill. You just steam them in the microwave before sautéing them in a pan with garlic, shallots and a cooking fat.
