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
For the Sauce:
3 Cloves of Garlic
Apple Cider Vinegar
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.
