Keto Pork and Rice Recipe

This quick and easy keto dinner is one that I like to make when I am short on time and need to get a healthy, homecooked dinner on the table. It’s even easier if you plan your meals right and cook it after you made a roasted pork loin. I like to make up two pork loins at a time so I have leftovers to make this pork stir fry the next day. This is a great way to use up leftover pork chops too!

Even if you didn’t pre-plan and have leftover cooked pork to work with, you can use ground pork or sausage. Simply cook a pound of ground pork in the skillet until cooked through. Everything is mixed together and flavored with a keto cream of mushroom soup. If you don’t have access to this sauce, you can substitute with 2-3 oz of cream cheese or make your own cream of mushroom sauce.

There are lots of options with this easy keto meal and it’s a recipe you should have on rotation when you meal plan as it is easy to customize or change up each week.

Stir Fry Vegetables

In this pork and rice recipe as listed above, I used sliced mushrooms, bell pepper and onion as the vegetable component of this meal; however, you can use any vegetables that pair well with pork as long as they are low carb. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover vegetables that are close to turning bad. Here are some other vegetables that can be used as substitutions in this keto pork stir fry:

  • green beans
  • zucchini
  • cauliflower florets
  • broccoli
  • spinach
  • kale
  • red bell pepper
  • tomato

 

 

Keto Rice

This pork and rice recipe could be made without the keto rice; however, I think it adds a hint of flavor plus it added substance so the dinner there will be enough food to feed my family of four. I used a hearts of palm rice in this recipe. I like using this rice as it has a similar appearance and texture to regular rice. Plus it has a neutral flavor. Those who don’t care for the taste of cauliflower rice might prefer hearts of palm rice.

The other option is to use cauliflower rice instead. I recommend buying riced cauliflower from the grocery store. It’s usually kept in the produce department or you can use frozen cauliflower rice.
