Low Carb Chicken Fried Steak (Keto)

I love that we can have comfort food turned healthy! This delicious breakfast dish that is awesome for dinner too (breakfast for dinner is a favorite of mine)! As yummy as it is, it is also super nutrient dense! WIN!  We use organic ingredients whenever possible and go for dairy products that are free of added hormones like our meat. 


or the steak)

  • 1 lb ground beef (you can use cubed steak as an option)
  • salt and pepper 
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 1 cup cheese chips (like whips)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil

(for the gravy)

  • 2 garlic clove minced
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • chives or parsley for garnish optional
  • 4 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • xanthan gum as an option to thicken 

(for the biscuits)

  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons whole psyllium husk (or xanthan gum)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons chilled butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


(for the "steak")

Season ground beef with salt and pepper. Divide into four equal parts and flatten into steak-like shapes.

Whisk together eggs and heavy cream in a shallow bowl. Set aside.

On a plate, combine pork rinds, cheese chips, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix well and transfer half of it to a second plate.

Coat "steaks" in pork rind mixture, dip in egg and then coat in the second pork rind mixture.

Put ghee/coconut oil in cast-iron pan over medium heat. When hot, add "steak". Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove to a plate.

(for the gravy)

Discard the grease from the pan. Add cream cheese and whisk until it is melted. Gradually whisk in beef broth. Simmer gently for a few minutes to thicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (For thicker gravy use a pinch or so of xanthan gum and whisk into the gravy. Be careful not too add too much!)

(for the biscuits)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Grate chilled butter into the bowl of dry ingredients using a cheese grater. Gently stir, being careful not to over mix.

Stir in the whipping cream and sour cream just enough to combine.

Drop balls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  I like to use a cookie dough scoop for this. Flatten each ball just a little before placing in the oven. 

Bake 10 minutes or until turning golden. 

Serve hot with gravy poured over steak and biscuits!
