A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

This Keto Beef and Broccoli recipe was one of the first I tried out in the Instant Pot. When I first got my Instant Pot, I went a little overboard. I literally used the thing every day. Like EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It certainly was one of the best additions I made to my kitchen in 2018 and well worth the investment. While I still use it a few times a week, I’ve calmed down a bit on my obsession. It is still my favorite (and oh-so-easy) way to get perfect hard boiled eggs and for making homemade bone broth.

Keto Beef and Broccoli is a huge favorite with my family. It’s so easy to put together and the flavors just meld so well together – like it was cooking all day but it’s ready in about 20 minutes! I’ve shared it with friends and everyone absolutely loves it. I serve this over cauliflower rice or shirataki noodles for a delicious keto meal that also is fantastic the next day as leftovers!

I’ve made this with broccoli florets or sometimes opt for broccolini which has longer stems and smaller florets. The broccolini? I think works well if you’ll be serving this over a low carb noodle vs cauliflower rice.
