A Friend of mine recently told me that he had been on the ketogenic diet. He told me how after a month of being on this diet his blood test results came back with his cholesterol , blood pressure, and his body wieght were all lower in just a months time.
A lot of buzz is being made over this diet. Tim Farris of the ” The 4 hour work week ” has documented his personal research and the effects he had experienced while being on the ketogenic diet.
Here are 5 steaks that go well with a ketogenic diet!
Skirt steaks are rich in flavor and fat. They come from the inner rib of a cow and are incased in a membrane that’s surrounded by fat.
Butchers with have to trim off alot of the fat to get to the meat. It’s still a fatty piece of meat, so don’t worry!
These steaks are kind of heavy, but very, very good. There’s a chewy texture to a skirt steak. They have a unique taste to them due to a high fat content. This steak has a nice fatty, beefy taste to it.
Most supermarkets carry skirt steak. If you’re short on time or can’t make it to a supermarket ( click here ) and don’t worry about it, Let The Hamptons butcher help you out!
1st cut chuck filet steak
1st cut chuck filet steak is considered to be a ” poor man’s ” rib steak. This cut of beef comes from where the neck of a cow meets the rib. This steak has a high fat content, which makes them taste great! They can be cooked in a pan, crock-pot, or on the grill.
I really enjoy these Steaks. Just a little salt, pepper, and if you’re going to grill them, rub a little olive oil on the steak, so they don’t stick to the grill. The only drawback is, is that you have trim off a lot of fat when you are eating them.
If you’re looking for something to cook in as a soup or in an crock pot, Oxtails are what you’re looking for! They are rich in fat, protein, and vitmins. Oxtails have in them B12 , calcium, B6 and iron. A oxtail comes from the tail of a cow.
People from all over the world add them to their diet. They are popular in such areas of the world as Asia, Central America, and the West Indies.
Oxtails are also a hearty meal on a cold night. They will warm your stomach and fill you up!
Grind your own beef !
I think this one of the greatest meat hacks! For I higher fat content, high protein meal it’s a cheapest and the easiest way go for ketogenic diet.
You can make meatloaf, meatballs, and hamburgers out of different cuts of beef.
Personal grinders are cheap ( if you need one click here).
A good personal grinder could be had for around 40$. Grinding your own beef could save you money, it allows you to know what you are grinding, and you’ll be able to control it’s fat content. You can grind cuts like brisket, deckel, and Tri-tip.

Club steaks are the ” top shelf ” steak of the bunch. This cut comes from the ” neck end ” of a rib of beef ” . This piece , like the 1st cut filet, this is a cut of beef rich in fat.
Most people will often pass on this cut for one from the loin side of the rib. Both are great cuts but, I think this cut has more flavor!
Club steaks will more often than not will have a great marbling through out the whole steak. These steaks are both good with the bone.
If you’re looking for a fat, juicy steak, this is it!
