Keto Chorizo Mince with Fried Eggs- and Leafy Greens

It’s cold and wet – it’s winter! And that alone calls for a hearty, tasty dinner.

If you love the flavours of Chorizo sausage, but not the cost of buying the sausage, you will enjoy this very easy mince dish – and for those of us eating a Keto menu it’s perfect. Just 7.5 grams net carbs per serve 😊

Ingredients: served 4

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 500ml Beef stock or beef broth
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small handful of lettuce leaves/baby kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

How to put together:

Melt 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil in a pan, add the onion and capsicum and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

Turn up the heat in the pan and then add the beef mince. Use your wooden spoon to break up any lumps – cook for 5-6 minutes until lightly browned.

Add all of the spices, oregano, apple cider vinegar and tomato paste – cook for a minute mixing the ingredients together well. Pour in the broth or stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the liquid is reduced by half. Season with salt & pepper.

In another pan, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Cook the eggs as you like them – I like the whites cooked and the yolks runny! Season the eggs with salt & pepper and set aside ready for plating.

Put the salad leaves in a bowl and drizzle with the olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Mix well.

Divide the chorizo mince onto a plate, top with a fried egg, some salad leaves – and you’re ready to eat!

This is a super easy meal to put together – it is very tasty and full of good fats and protein. Perfect for a Keto diet. I love the combination of mince with eggs, and happily eat this type of meal anytime of the day. It’s a good breakfast, lunch or dinner.

A good idea is to make up a double batch and freeze it. It freezes well and for the busy working mum, a meal you can defrost and reheat during the week is gold. The kids will love this too – add nacho chips for them with a dollop of sour cream and there won’t be a complaint in the house.

Happy cooking xx
