When it comes to meat, you can rest easy choosing beef. Along with being delicious, beef contains important nutrients that your body needs, such as the B vitamins and minerals.

Rouladen is a German beef dish which normally has beef wrapped with pickles and mustard. It has an unbeatable taste and even more good news is how deliciously beef pairs with low-carb vegetables and just about any spice– making it even easier to enjoy on a keto diet.

We’ve made many keto beef recipes before, but this particular recipe, we combine beef with jalapenos.

Jalapenos are known for their moderate level of heat to boost the flavor of any dish. They are rich in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects your body’s cells from free radicals. The peppers themselves are very low in calories.

When choosing beef for your meals, try to get the highest quality possible. There are many online butchers that offer grass-fed and grass-finished beef at an affordable price.

Peppers stimulate weight loss because they have a thermogenic effect on the body. This means that they “heat” up your metabolism so that you burn more calories.

Additionally, peppers are a good source of vitamin A to support healthy vision. Vitamin A is also important for the maintenance of skin, bone and other tissues. Finally, peppers can help keep your blood sugar levels under control because they’re a good source of antioxidants and fiber.

To prepare, roll together seasoned beef steaks with pickles and jalapenos. Fry it until it’s no longer pink then add beef broth and simmer for an hour and a half.
