Keto Crispy Sesame Beef

This recipe for sesame crispy beef is what I call “the keto-fied version of a classic dish”. The meal is commonly found in many Chinese restaurants, but not to worry. With daikon noodles, it’s still going to be keto-friendly and delicious like the usual. This dish is a must for Chinese food lovers. This is a great dish to make if you’re getting those hankerings for Chinese food.

Shortly after that, add sesame seeds and red pepper flakes to sauce mixture and whisk all together.
  6. While cooking your vegetables, get a large pot or fryer and heat your oil on high heat until it reaches 325 degrees F. Now that the  oil is on the proper temperature you should add beef strips. Fry both sides of the meat by turning the sides so that it can be fried well, do not fry for more than two to three minutes, your meat is done when you see the brown crust on the meat.
  7. Now, wait no more, remove the beef from the oil and place on paper towels so as to remove excess oil.
