Keto Carne Asada Bowl Recipe

This low carb recipe has no grains and no sugar—it's completely keto-friendly. Not only that, but this keto recipe is even an immune system builder!

This carne asada bowl recipe is an incredibly fresh, light, and tasty salad with skirt steak. Skirt steak is fattier, which is actually a lot better. The leaner the protein, the faster it will actually spike your blood sugars. There's also some avocado in this dish, which gives you even more delicious healthy fat.


Steak and Marinate:

1 1/2 lbs skirt steak

1/3 cup olive oil

3 limes, juiced

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp cumin powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

salt and pepper, to taste


Radishes, sliced thinly

Avocado, sliced

Mixed greens or Arugula

Sliced red cabbage

Additional lime wedges for garnish


Cilantro Lime Sauce:

1 cup cilantro

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cloves garlic

lime juice from 1 lime

salt, pepper, pinch of each

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. 
  2. Add the steak to a glass baking tray and pour the marinade on top, fully coating everything.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for an hour or more.
  4. Heat a grill (or pan) on medium-high heat and let the grill/pan get hot before putting the steak on.
  5. Cook steak on the grill for approximately 5-7 minutes on each side or until 143 degrees internally (if you want it medium rare). 
  6. Remove the steak to a cutting board and let it rest before slicing it into small strips.
  7. Add all of the dressing ingredients to a food processor (or blender) and process on high until the sauce looks creamy.
  8. Add your lettuce and vegetables in a bowl and top with steak and dressing and additional cilantro if you like.
