Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat and add bacon. Cook until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside to cool.

  • Add beef to the soup pot and flatten with a spatula. Cook until bottom is browned, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook other side, about 5 minutes more. Add broth, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pickles, tomato paste, steak sauce, mustard, onion powder, chili powder, and black pepper. Mix well to combine, breaking meat into smaller pieces.

  • Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until cream cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Cover and cook soup for 25 minutes more.

  • Ladle soup into individual bowls. Divide lettuce between bowls and fold into soup. Crumble 1 slice of cooked bacon into each bowl and garnish with tomatoes and red onion.

Cook's Note:

Be sure to choose a low-carb, keto-friendly steak sauce.
