Low Carb Pork Fried “Rice”

My memories of Chinese take out usually involve fried rice! As a kid I would always get the chicken, my brother and Dad the beef, my Mom would get the pork. It wasn’t until I was older that I appreciated more flavors other than chicken!

My husband is a big pork fan so I made this skillet meal happen! It pays off to get the meat well seasoned and sauced before adding everythibg else! If you do not have fish sauce, consider purchasing some here as even though it’s only 1/4 tsp, it really adds the “restaurant secret ingredient” that tops off the flavors well!!

Low Carb Pork Fried “Rice”

For the meat step:

1 Tbsp sesame seed oil

1 lb ground pork

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp worchestershire sauce

1/4 tsp fish sauce

2 tsp monkfruit sweetener, or erithrytol comparative

2 cloves garlic, minced

For the veggie step:

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 celery stalk, diced fine

1/2 bag coleslaw mix

1 Tbsp sesame seed oil

For the egg step:

1 tbsp sesame oil

3 eggs; beaten

1 tsp soy sauce

Plus

1 bag of Green Giant Riced Cauliflower, steamed or stir fried till tender,approx 5 min

In a large skillet, cast iron preferred, on medium high heat start to brown and crumble the meat with the sesame seed oil. While its cooking, add and work in the other ingredients including salt and pepper. Once cooked, remove from skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, add the sesame oil from the veggie step. Stir in the minced garlic then throw in the veggies. Stir fry veggies till the carrots are al dente as they are the firmest veggie in the slaw mix. Top off with a pinch of black pepper.

Now stir the meat back into the skillet mixing well.

Push it all to one side and add in oil from egg step, followed by the whisked eggs and soy sauce. Keep it in that side of the skillet gently scrambling them in the pan. Once the eggs are all cooked, stir everything together, mixing well.

Take the skillet off of the heat and stir the prepared cauli-rice into it.

Serve with additional soy sauce as desired.

Low Carb Chicken Chile Casserole

When I make broth from leftover bones I save the bits of meat off of them!

Around here, no one “eats” chicken off the bone, it is cut off before served, cause you know, kids…..so it all works out to save it!

Save the broth for other recipes like my Keto Skillet Pot Pie! You can also get a whole rotisserie chicken and use half the meat for this casserole and the other half for the pot pie!

1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded

Best Keto Pork Ribs

I never used to be a fan of pork

ribs because the strings would get in my teeth and I hate that!

Every birthday for my daughter and husband we would grill 2 racks. I just HAD to find a way to make them more tender!!

So to add in moisture and break down the fibers I slow cook it for 3 hours before grilling it for 20 to 30 minutes.

It literally falls off the bone😋

You will want to make these no fuss ribs for yuppie next barbeque😍

Premix the batter ingredients. Precut the chicken. And you can even get the sauce ingredients together EXCEPT for the glucommannon if you wish!

Here is the baking mix recipe! Visit here for the recipe to make it!

Now you can top cauliflower rice or stir fried cabbage with it. I chose cabbage!

Put cabbage or rice in bowl. Put chicken on top then spoon on sauce. I sprinkled mine with 2 pinches of sesame seeds.

When you have kids, there will be leftovers because they are most likely going to fall asleep during dinner.

If not, you are lucky! Well we recently had cheeseburgers and I saved my sons portion that he didn’t touch.

Baked the 2nd time at 400°F for 6 min after topping the crust and then 5 min on broil.

Yum!!
