Low Carb Steak Taco Bowl uses leftover meat and veggies you probably already have on hand. Cook this recipe in a large skillet for a one pot meal! This recipe is super flexible as you can use any leftover beef or steak. You can also use ground beef here, but I find the steak strips make for a more satisfying meal since they are heartier. This recipe is just like fajitas except the cheese is added to the dish and served as is, rather than in a taco shell. You could serve this in low carb tortillas, though, for a great family friendly meal.
There are also recipes for low carb tortillas using cheese– I’ve never made these, but that would work great with this recipe! Here is a link to a low carb taco shell that uses pork rinds– it has great ratings too! Another option is to stuff the taco bowl mixture into bell peppers. Bell peppers make great “edible bowls” for low carb fillings- check out my low carb philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers which cooks in one pot on top of the stove- very easy.
