Keto Meat Sauce

Dish Info

We all have those staple recipes that our freezer is never without, and this Keto Meat Sauce is one for me. You can serve it over zucchini noodles for a grab and go meal, or use it in a recipe like Eggplant Lasagna. Either way, prepare to be amazed with this delicious low carb spaghetti sauce! It is ridiculously aromatic and SO much better than jarred sauce. Want to make it even easier? The Instant Pot makes this one a cinch!


– 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil – 2 tablespoons butter – ½ cup onion chopped – 1 celery stalk chopped – 1 teaspoon minced garlic – 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning – ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes – 1 tablespoon tomato paste – 16 ounce ground beef – 28 ounces whole tomatoes and juice crushed by hand – ½ cup Parmesan cheese – 1 teaspoon sea salt – ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

– Set your pot to high saute and add the butter and oil. Heat until the butter is melted and has stopped foaming.

– Add onion, celery, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.

– Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes, and stir in tomato paste. Cook for 1 minute.

– Add the ground beef, and cook until the moisture is evaporated and the meat is brown, about 10 minutes.

– Add tomatoes. DO NOT STIR. Place the lid on your Instant Pot and seal. Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes.

– Allow the pot to release naturally for 15 minutes, and then do a quick release.

– Set the pot to low saute. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 more minutes.
