A Simple Keto Recipe – Pork with Ginger Chinese Sauce


One thing that is exceedingly difficult for me on Keto, is Chinese food. Obviously the takeaways are off limits. However creating homemade Chinese food is a bit of a challenge too. Indian and Thai are much easier to fathom. The fresh ginger and garlic sauce below is an easy alternative. It goes with pretty much any meat, and you can do whatever veg you like on the side.

Ingredients – Serves 2

Diced Pork

For the Sauce:

Fresh Ginger

3 Cloves of Garlic

Olive Oil

Apple Cider Vinegar

Cherry Tomatoes


Chilli Pepper

Any fresh parsley, coriander or mint you have to hand

Butter for veg & frying meat

Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions – Prep Time: 5 minutes. Cooking Time: 15 minutes

There are 2 ways of cooking this. The lazy way, is where you cook the sauce ingredients in with the meat. However for the 1st time you should just stir fry the meat separately. As you need two reduce down the sauce, so you need to get an idea of the timing. So it’s best to do it in a different pan.

Cook the pork for 15 minutes on a medium heat, stirring occasionally. The sauce and veg can be prepped and cooked within this time. Put the oil and vinegar into the pan, medium heat. Dice then add to the pan in this order, onion, ginger, chilli, garlic, tomatoes, herbs. Let the sauce cook and reduce. Stir occasionally. Once ready mix in with the cooked meat and serve.

You can do any side veg you want.
