Keto Pork and Cashew Stir Fry

Louise Hendon | April 7

The one thing that I love most about my keto diet is the fact that I can eat pork as often as I crave it. Every now and then, I like to try something new and if you feel the same way, I strongly suggest this mouth-watering keto pork and cashew stir fry.

It’s super easy to make (it will take you about 10 minutes to prepare it and another 10 to cook it) and you can serve it for lunch or dinner. Besides that, I’ve included a few interesting options for you to experiment with. 

You can keep it simple by frying the pork in avocado oil and then adding peppers, onion, and spicing it up with fresh garlic and ginger or if you’re in for a hotter experience, you can add a little bit of Chinese Chili oil. You choose! 

The exquisite taste of this keto stir fry pork recipe is given by the mix of cashew, ginger and Tamari sauce, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Try it for yourself! You can serve it as a main dish or alongside this Avocado Cucumber Ginger Salad.
