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

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

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

    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.

    I thought it would be more flavorful. What other spices are good to add in for next time?

      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.
