Keto Mu Shu Pork

Louise Hendon | April 7

I have to admit, I am a big fan of Chinese cuisine and I’m always doing my best to find new ways to adapt Asian recipes to my keto diet. For those of you that resonate with this, here’s an amazing Keto Mu Shu pork recipe! 

It takes about 15 minutes to prep and another 15 to cook it so you can consider making it on one of those busy weekdays when you need a quick dinner fix. 

You can serve it in lettuce wraps (a great substitute for the little pancakes in which this dish is usually served) or you can skip this part and serve it as it is. Both ways, this is a super tasty Mu Shu pork recipe that will surely impress your loved ones! 

The Tamari sauce will add a savory taste to your pork tenderloin and vegetables and if you want to make it even more special garnish it with scallions. 

Enjoy!
