I think one of hardest things about the keto diet is finding foods that can be made ahead of time so they are ready whenever you need them. Since these roll-ups are served cold you can make them up to 3 days ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator for easy lunch, dinner, or a quick snack.

How to Make Keto Roast Beef and Asparagus Roll Ups

  1. Steam the asparagus so it is tender but crisp, approximately 2-3 minutes depending on thickness. When done run under cold water, pat dry, and set aside. 
  2. In a bowl stir together the cream cheese and horseradish until it is thoroughly combined. 
  3. Spread approximately 1 tablespoon of cream cheese on each slice of roast beef, add three spears of asparagus and roll the roast beef up. 
  4. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.

How to Make Them Into Appetizers:

If you want to serve these at a party, or bring them with you as a keto appetizer for a party you’re attending, all you have to do is cut each roll-up in half to make them into smaller portions.

You can serve both halves, or if you want to be a little fancy you can just serve the end that has the tops of the asparagus poking out. This makes a really pretty presentation for a party platter.

Keto Roast Beef and Asparagus Roll Ups

Roast Beef and Asparagus Roll Ups are a 4 ingredient, easy low carb lunch, dinner, or snack idea, that can even be served as a keto appetizer at parties!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Deli roast beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound Asparagus, approximately 36 thin spears
  • 8 ounces Cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Horseradish

Instructions

  • Steam the asparagus so it is tender but crisp, approximately 2-3 minutes depending on thickness. When done run under cold water, pat dry, and set aside.
  • In a bowl stir together the cream cheese and horseradish until it is thoroughly combined.
  • Spread approximately 1 tablespoon of cream cheese on each slice of roast beef, add three spears of asparagus and roll the roast beef up.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Notes

Note: You can cook your asparagus to whatever level of tenderness you prefer. I like mine with just a little crispness to them so they aren’t limp when they hang out of the roast beef. If you prefer less crunch it’s not a problem!
