Surf and Turf Chowder – Pressure Cooker Recipe

Surf and Turf Chowder

A great hearty soup is not always the best option on a ketogenic or low carb diet, especially if you are looking for something premade. Normally there are potatoes, rice, bread, and added sugars are included. Here I present a healthy, flavorful, low carb alternative, Surf and Turf Chowder.

While you can make this recipe in a conventional oven, the directions here are for a pressure cooker. It only takes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete this recipe with the pressure cooker. Below I will have a link for a great pressure cooker for under $100.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Top Sirloin Steak
  • 1 lb Chicken Breast or Thighs
  • 1 lb Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Garlic Parmesan Seasoning
  • Old Bay Seasoning

Directions

Chop the top Sirloin Steak and chicken into small chunks. Season the steak with the steak seasoning and the chicken with the garlic parmesan seasoning. Set your pressure cooker to cook meat for about 5 to 10 minutes and add a half cup of water with the seasoned meat. Meanwhile, peel the shrimp, if necessary and season with the Old Bay seasoning. Prepare your Cream Cheese, Heavy Whipping Cream and Almond Milk. The cream cheese does not need to be melted down. Release the steam off the steak and chicken and dump as much of the water off as you can. Add the rest of the ingredients and close the lid and cook for another 10 to 15  minutes.

Before I realized the Keto was a thing, I actually thought that Tacos were healthy. A Taco is basically a salad on a tortilla, right. But when I actually started counting macros, I came to the conclusion that corn tortillas have just as many carbohydrates as bread, maybe more. Nowadays there are a few options for low carb tortillas. Some taste great and others, not so much. My favorite, La Banderitas Carb Counters are only 5 net carbs per wrap. The only problem is that they are a bit large for tacos. If you want Taco Tuesday, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Mix the ground meat, cream cheese, paprika, pepper, soul seasoning, and garlic salt together and cook to brown. Open the tortilla, add the meat, then lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream on top. That’s it. Very simple and quick. You can fry the meat or pressure cook it as I did for this article. Makes enough for at least 8 tacos. It takes about 30 minutes, great for a quick family meal after work.
