My Easy Keto Beef Lasagna is going to be challenging everyone favourite recipe! Whether you are keto or not it is all about great taste and boy this lasagna deliver!

My goal was to make a new favourite low carb lasagna. It had to be easy with a minimal amount of fuss and I think I managed that.

To my fellow Aussie’s forgive me for use of of lasagna vs lasagne. I hate that the english speaking world create various spellings of the same word but I am trying to appeal to everyone. Internationally speaking lasagna wins online. So anyway let’s get to how to make my very easy keto beef lasagna.

Easy Keto Beef Lasagna Ingredients

Fats – Butter and oil. Both help to add loads of great flavour to the mushrooms and onions. For dairy free substitute either more oil or ghee.

Pork and  Veal Mince. I love this combination of two ground meats. It really adds flavour  to any kind of bolognese. You can of course exchange for your personal choice and make this your own easy keto beef lasagna, keto chicken lasagna or even a fabulous keto mushroom lasagna. (even I would eat just mushrooms in this).

Herbs and Spices. I use sweet paprika, oregano (dried), fresh rosemary, a cinnamon quill, tomato powder (purely optional) and salt and pepper, to season. Honestly if you want to add more spice like chillies, cayenne, or some thyme or Italian herbs go for your life. Just bare in mind that the more you add the more the carbs creep up.

Red wine. Now if you don’t drink it or don’t want it just leave it out. I would recommend adding half a cup of beef stock or bone broth particularly if you are using an Instant Pot®. Without the extra liquid you might get the Burn warning. Let me tell you my Instant Pot® easy keto beef lasagna is my fave out of all 3 methods. So fast so easy and I can work while it does the work.

Tomatoes. To be honest I am still a fan of a nice keto beef and tomato bolognese. However, I am also love ground beef cooked in broth/stock.

How to Make The best Keto Bolognese Sauce

In the method of the Easy Keto Beef Lasagna I have given you 3 methods of cooking. There is so many ways but hey I gave you 3 so that is pretty special. lol.

I am really loving making  Instant Pot® bolognese or ragu for dishes like this. Using the pressure cook function makes this so easy and the results are perfection. Now if you have the new Ninja Foodi, or a Phillips all in one, Tefal cook 4 me etc all these multi-cookers will do the same thing just follow the instructions below and adapt them to the small changes of buttons on your machines. Times should not  change for the cooking though.

Making a Thermomix® beef lasagna recipe work takes a little longer cooking time but still turns out great. Cooking the keto white sauce recipe is a breeze in the thermo as well as the pasta.

Making bolognese on the stove top is something most of us have possibly done at one point in our lives. Just don’t forget to control the temperature and use a timer so you do not over cook or burn.

Easy Keto Beef Lasagna Noodles/Pasta

I am a big fan of my very basic lasagna pasta recipe. It is so fast and easy and honestly I make it and bake it while the lasagna is cooking. When the bolognese has finished the pasta is already out of the oven and ready to use.

Make sure you mix the the ingredients really well. I use psyllium husk powder not the husks. Leave the mix to rest  for 10 minutes before bringing our your inner child and painting it real thin on your prepared baking paper. 

Cover with another sheet of baking paper and bake 10 minutes. Cut in half and you have the best keto lasagna pasta sheets.

How to Construct your Keto Beef Lasagna

Simply scoop half of the bolognese into the bottom of you pan. 

Cover with one sheet of the pasta and top with half of the white sauce. Add some extra cheese if you want a gooey cheesy lasagna.

Repeat the layers and finish with a thick layer of white sauce. Cover with foil.

Bake 30 minutes at 180℃. I use fan-forced temperature oven.

Remove foil and sprinkle with cheese and bake a further 5 minutes or until cheese is nicely golden.

All to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Easy Keto Beef Lasagna with Keto Pasta

I really wanted to make a truly delicious keto lasagna that everyone would love. This is one recipe I reckon your whole family is going to adopt as a new favourite. It isn't hard to recreate and tastes so damn good. Take that from someone who is eating it every meal and I am pretty fussy when it comes to eating the same thing over and over when you don't eat often.

    Wow, lasagne is back in my life in a big way. I made the bolognese in the instant pot and it was a bit soupy, so I was a bit worried. But I made this the night before and when I cut it the next day to heat up single serves for dinner it was perfect! Next time I’ll simmer the sauce a bit longer to reduce it, but I know that either way it will be perfect every time.

    Oh my goodness this is such a great tasting lasagna. I have made many lasagna’s over the years and used to make one my family and friends always requested. This one is so close to it.!!!
    I have made 2 in the last two days as my daughter took the first one with her. We have been enjoying this second one for dinner and lunches. The pasta sheets make it very authentic and it holds together well.
    I will be making this one often as lasagna is back on the menu!!
    Thanks Megan for another awesome recipe that is just like the pre- keto version

  7. Hi, What speed should the Thermomix be in the Lasagna Pasta recipe. Thanks.

    1. It is fixed now Therese.
