Keto pork stir fry with cauliflower rice

Fancy learning how to make a deliciously spicy meal rich in flavour and that takes only a few minutes to make? Look no further: this keto pork stir fry with cauliflower rice is exactly what you need.

Keto pork stir fry

A good stir fry is probably only second to traybake dinners: both tasty, simple and versatile, the main advantage of sheet-pan recipes is the minimum cleanup involved (no matter if you make them with meat, fish or tofu). But sometimes a fragrant stir fry is exactly what you need. 

In this easy keto recipe, good-quality minced pork is combined with a few selected ingredients to get an unexpected flavourful result.  To make it, you’ll need:

  • minced pork
  • olive oil
  • soy sauce
  • balsamic vinegar
  • garam masala
  • medium chilli powder
  • onion powder

In this recipe, the spiciness of the pork is balanced with the more basic flavours of cauliflower rice. You can use plain cooked cauliflower rice or, for a different twist, you can mix it with olive oil and garam masala.

Toppings are optional but recommended to add a touch of freshness and create a nice combination of textures. For example, try to use a mix of sliced fresh chillies, parsley and spring onions as toppings. Fresh coriander, mint or a dollop of plain Greek yogurt would work well, too.

The preparation of this keto pork stir fry with cauliflower rice couldn’t be easier:

  • Over medium heat, warm up a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When ready, add the minced pork and cook, stirring frequently using a spoon, until browned.
  • Carefully add the soy sauce and mix well.
  • Add the spices and mix well. Cook for a few minutes.
  • When the pork is almost ready, carefully add the balsamic vinegar and mix well. Keep stirring for another 30 seconds.
  • Once ready, taste and adjust the amount of spices according to your preferences. Ensure the meat is fully cooked before eating it.
  • In a separate pan, cook the cauliflower according to the instructions on the package. Add spices and olive oil at the end.
  • Place both cooked pork and cauliflower rice in a bowl, add the toppings (if you are using them) and serve warm.

Common questions about this keto pork stir fry with cauliflower rice:

  • Can I make it without cauliflower rice? Yes, it’s a delicious idea on how to serve this low-carb stir fry but you can use roasted vegetables or a fresh salad if you want.
  • Can I use a different kind of meat? Technically, yes. The flavours of pork are difficult to recreate, so if you are using a different kind of meat, you’ll need to adjust the amount of spices. Minced lamb would be the best alternative.
  • Is this low-carb recipe gluten-free? Yes, the recipe is naturally gluten-free. If needed, ensure all packaged products are certified gluten-free, too.

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ½ tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp medium chilli powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder

Instructions
 

  • Over medium heat, warm up a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When ready, add the minced pork and cook, stirring frequently using a spoon, until browned.
  • Carefully add the soy sauce and mix well.
  • Add the spices and mix well. Use 2 teaspoons of garam masala and all the chilli powder. Cook for a few minutes.
  • When the pork is almost ready, carefully add the balsamic vinegar and mix well. Keep stirring for another 30 seconds.
  • Once ready, taste and adjust the amount of spices according to your preferences. Ensure the meat is fully cooked before eating it.
  • In a separate pan, cook the cauliflower according to the instructions on the package. Add spices and olive oil at the end. Use 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala and 1 tbsp of olive oil.

Notes

  • Optional toppings: finely chopped parsley, slices of fresh chillies and spring onions. These toppings are not included in the nutritional information written below.
  • The cooking time is listed as 15 minutes because allowing the minced pork to cook a little bit longer will improve the overall flavour profile of the stir fry. You can skip this step but ensure the meat is fully cooked before eating it.
  • This recipe makes 4 small portions or bigger portions.
  • You can use lean minced pork if you prefer.

    I was expecting something entirely different and to my surprise it was freaking delicious. I subbed the chili powder with cayenne pepper and added a bell pepper and shredded carrots to the meat.
    I didn’t have cauliflower rice, so I shredded some cabbage as my “rice” 😂
    I’m really excited that I have leftovers!
