Ingredients: sesame oil, garlic, onion, green onions, ground pork, ground ginger, sea salt, black pepper, Sriracha or garlic chili sauce, coleslaw, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame seeds.

This is a very handy one-pot dish to cut down on washing dishes! As egg rolls are Asian in origin, the meat mixture tastes more authentic if you use coconut aminos or soy sauce. This tastes great as it is but you could also serve it in lettuce wraps for easy eating. Any leftovers can be reheated next day for lunch or even packed cold in a lunchbox to take to work.

Ingredients: spring onion, garlic, minced/ground beef, mince/ground pork, eggs, fresh parsley, fresh basil, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, dried oregano, salt, pepper, vegetables of choice, grated cheese of choice (optional).


What could make meatloaf even better? Bacon! It gives the meatloaf a lovely flavor and keeps it from drying out. This recipe uses both ground pork and beef, but you could even use turkey instead. If you have kids (or partners!) who avoid veg at all costs, simply chop it very fine or grate it and hide it in the meatloaf then they won’t even notice!

Homemade burgers are always popular in our house, and I love making them because that way you know exactly what you are using. These ones taste so good, especially with the spicy aioli, and I like to top mine with raw red onion, thinly sliced, or bacon strips for extra flavor. These burgers taste better if you rest them for a couple of minutes before serving.

This recipe is quite a basic one which you can use as a guide to making your own meat sauce. For example you could add in onions, mushrooms and garlic for a completely new dish.

Ingredients: ground pork, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, cumin, ground pepper, salsa, lettuce leaves, taco toppings (diced green peppers/red peppers/avocado/onions etc.).

I just love lettuce wraps as they make food much easier to serve and are great for kids! These tacos are packed with color and flavor, especially if you add your own toppings like chopped bell peppers and avocado. You can also add in some hot sauce when you are cooking the meat to give them a bit of a kick, and a squeeze of lime finishes it off really well.

These wonderful pork dumplings are packed with Asian flavor and would make a great appetizer for an Asian-inspired dinner party. They have the traditional flavors of garlic and ginger, but have a good chili kick from the bird’s eye chili peppers. Obviously if you are serving these for kids or adults who don’t like spice, you could use mild chilis or even miss them out.

Ingredients: ground pork, garlic powder, paprika, salt, cooking fat (tallow or coconut oil).

I love sausage for breakfast or lunch, and I am always on the lookout for different ways to flavor it up, so this one was a definite! The paprika gives the sausage almost a chorizo-like flavor and if you like it you can increase the amount used. You could make these different by adding in some chopped fresh herbs, but they are lovely as they are.

Keto Pork Tenderloin Recipes

Pork and Cashew Stir-Fry

36 Perfect Keto Pork Recipes

Ingredients: pork tenderloin, egg, bell pepper, green onion, cashews, fresh ginger, garlic, Chinese chili oil (optional), sesame oil (optional), gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos, salt, avocado oil.

Cashew nuts are slightly softer than other nuts and this makes them perfect to put in stir-fry dishes to add a bit of bite and a contrast in texture to the meat. They are rich in nutrients and healthy fats and go so well with the pork. If you are cooking to a budget, you can replace the pork tenderloin with ground pork, but this is a good way to use up leftover roast pork too.

Pan-Fried Pork Tenderloin

36 Perfect Keto Pork Recipes

Ingredients: pork tenderloin, salt, pepper, coconut oil.

Here is another basic recipe that shows you how to cook tenderloin, and once you’ve mastered it, you can experiment by adding different seasonings, herbs and spices. For tender and juicy meat, you don’t want to overcook it. Pork can be left a bit pink in the middle, just remember to rest the meat for a few minutes before serving.

Paleo Mu Shu Pork

– Paleo Flourish

36 Perfect Keto Pork Recipes

Ingredients: pork tenderloin, eggs, napa cabbage leaves, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots, ginger, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, salt, coconut oil, scallions, lettuce leaves (optional).

Mu Shu is a recipe with its roots in Northern China, and with a few tweaks it can be made easily with local-sourced ingredients. Like many stir-fries, it is bright and colorful and full of flavor and can be served on lettuce leaves, or simply placed in a bowl and enjoyed on its own. Because all the ingredients are thinly sliced, you will find it a quick and easy recipe, ideal for unexpected guests.

As a bonus, the mushrooms in this dish offer some wonderful health benefits.  Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., says, “These meaty and flavorful mushrooms contain a substance called eritadenine, which encourages body tissues to absorb cholesterol and lower the amount circulating in the blood. Shiitakes also have antiviral and anticancer effects.”

Ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Greek seasoning, sea salt, pork tenderloin, lard.

Pork tenderloin is a favorite for dinner parties and celebrations. Marinating the pork can be so easy if you place the meat and marinade into a ziptop bag. This can ensure a complete coating on the meat. Once you have marinated the meat remove it from the bag and pat it dry with paper towels to ensure a perfect seal on the meat. Once cooked, let the pork rest for 5 to 10 minutes to make sure it is tender and juicy.

Kelp noodles are full of nutrients and vitamins and are very low in carbohydrates, which makes them a great ingredient to use on the Keto diet. They can be soaked to soften them or just warmed through, as in this recipe, to add a bit of crunch to contrast with the tender and spicy pork.

These skewers may look straightforward but the flavors from the marinade make the pork taste amazing! The Asian flavors of the fish sauce, lime and garlic give the meat an authentic taste and these would be perfect served with a fresh green salad or on a bed of cauliflower rice. You could even put extra veggies on the skewers to change it up.

Ingredients: pork cutlets, Italian dressing, grated parmesan cheese, FlavorGod everything or favorite seasonings.

Using parmesan to coat meat is an idea that we have enjoyed for a long time. It adds just a bit of contrast to the flavor without increasing the carbs too much. You can reduce the cooking time if you prefer your pork to still be pink in the middle. If you find the coating comes off easily, dip the cutlets in seasoning then parmesan and leave in the fridge for ten minutes before cooking.

Seasoned pork chops can be a delicious meal to serve to the family and they can be sourced quite cheaply so are great if you are working to a budget.

I just love the different layers you get when you slice into these delicious pork rolls and expose the ham and cheese filling.

Normally rubs for spare ribs involve using sugar to achieve the sticky coating but this recipe is sugar-free, yet the ribs have a wonderful deep flavor because of the cacao powder.
