Keto Cheesy Pork Fried Rice

Keto fried rice with pork and a whole lot of cheesy goodness

If Asian style fried rice and Risotto had a baby, this would be it. If it was a Keto baby, it would be cauliflower instead of rice. That is precisely what this dish is. It is a melting pot of flavours and ingredients. I use the fried rice technique to cook it but give it that creamy taste that you would associate with a risotto. I mean who has ever eaten a fried rice with cream and cheese. In fact you will rarely see any dairy like milk, cream, cheese in Asian food. Anyway I find this to be the perfect dish to make a large batch of and eat it over a couple of days. Definitely a great dish for meal prep. Enjoy the recipe.

Make it vegetarian if you like or use a meat of choice

There is plenty of wriggle room in this recipe. You can swap out the pork for some ground chicken or beef, you can use seafood if you like or you can even use ham or bacon. If you are vegetarian just leave out the meat, you can throw in some paneer as a protein or maybe some assorted mushrooms for a meaty texture. Either way it’s a great

        This was absolutely delicious. I added a bit more spice because we like things extra hot. I also substituted Greek yoghurt for the cream (we’re not on strict keto) and I didn’t have spinach so I added sliced mushrooms instead. I must admit that I was dubious about adding the olives, but I did it anyway and I’m delighted with the result. Definitely making this again. It’s my new go to for pork mince.

  1. Super yummy recipe. I used lettuce instead of spinach because that’s what I had. Will definitely be making this again.

  2. Been a hit twice, although this time it was over spicy for some family members. Is tbsp supposed to be tsp?

  3. this was amazing ! I literally googled cauliflower rice and minced pork Keto recipes because thats what I had in my refrigerator .

  4. Made this a second time. I doubled the spices because I like it hot. Such a high quality, ultra yummy recipe. Super satisfying and I feel healthy eating it!!! WIN!!!

  5. SAHIL MAKHIJA ,you should be ashamed of yourself. Don’t you know that putting a dish on your web site that taste this good is going to make people tend to overeat.
    (just kidding – Great Job)

  6. A wonderful recipe i changed minced pork meat to prawns added a bit extra garlic. It was a hit with everybody including those not on keto diet

    1. Well that depends. You can turn it towards more Indian flavours with cumin, garam masala, coriander powder etc. You can also take it more Asian with fish sauce and soya sauce, vinegar etc.

  7. This was very very good! I used Italian sausage. This will he on repeat, especially in the colder months.

      1. Hi, Sahil! This is the best fried rice I ever had! It’s heaven in a bowl I couldn’t stop eating it! Even my husband loved it. Thanks to you!!

  8. Made for dinner this evening using ghee + thyme + dried red pepper instead of butter + dried oregano + cayenne. Yo! Bruh! Freakin delicious and the hubby enjoyed it as well. Thought he was going to lick the plate 😉

  9. My word Sahil! I recommended your website to my colleagues just today and thought I’ll try my hand at one of your recipes as I am new to keto. Bless you! This was incredible! I added chili-garlic sauce as well as some soy sauce and it just blew me away! Thank you!

  10. OK, all bloggers say, “Oh my gosh you guys! This is so good. You have to try it!” So I don’t let that make my decision for me. I wanted fried rice – keto style – so we gave this one a try. You know what? OH MY GOSH you guys!! This is SO GOOD! You HAVE to try it!! Seriously. It’s creamy and tasty and oh so yummy. I like that you didn’t add the peppers until the end. I usually saute them at the beginning with the onions, but I like the crunch when the peppers were added at the end. It added another level to my taste buds. My husband doesn’t usually like leftovers, but he couldn’t wait until the next night to have this again. Thank you for this recipe.

  11. Is it okay for keto for it to have more protein than fat? I just made this btw.. switched the pork for turkey and didn’t have paprika so just added Italian seasoning. Used mozerella and some other Mexican cheese instead of cheddar.

    1. It’s fine, if you feel yourself needing more fat start incorporating fat as maybe a fat bomb or a bullet proof coffee along with meals or as snacks. Alternatively take smaller portions of food and add fat over and above that. Liek this pork fried rice, take a smaller portion and put 1 tbsp butter on top. Ketosis is simply a metabolic state by the absence of carbs not the presence of fat.

    Just made this for my tea tonight. Couldn’t wait, so having it for my lunch instead. It’s delicious!
    Thanks Sahil.

  13. Ohmy I love your recipes, I just keep searching for more and more, and being keto is a bonus, love your down to earth manner. Just found your book KKeto life, and I had to buy it, Cant wait for your ebooks. Be first in line for them, Cheers

  14. Seriously yum! Hubby and I are new to keto and finding this recipe has been amazing. I’ll be adding it to my weekly rotation. I used 500g of pork mince to make it meatier and increased the garlic and spices a little, a tad extra cheese and cream too and I left out the olives. Will certainly be making again. I liked your clear instructional video too!

    This is the best fried cauliflower rice I’ve found in two years of trying recipes online. We each had a serving and my husband is now eating everything left in the pan. I’m deleting all the other fried rice recipes I’ve tried. This is the one.

  16. Another amazing recipe, Sahil!!! And to think I just happened to have everything in the fridge except 1 spring onion. Wonderful flavour & super easy prep. I doubled the pork simply because we needed more protein. Will definitely be making this again!!
