My Keto Sweet and Sour Pork recipe is the total bomb! I have a feeling this very simple sweet and sour recipe will very quickly become a firm favourite in many households.

I am working on a lot of new recipes at the moment I have to say that Asian ketogenic recipes are high on my list. Why? Because it is simply what I want to eat. haha! The best way to get recipes for the site is to listen to my inner foodie asking for different cuisines.

Prior to going keto Sweet and Sour Pork was a favourite whenever I got takeout Chinese. Sticky flavoursome and tender pork was always a winner in my opinion. So I definitely had to come up with an easy sweet and sour recipe that fits in with my low carb lifestyle.

How To Make It

Step 1. The only part of this recipe that takes any real time is marinating the pork. Choose to marinate just for an hour or overnight the choice is yours. The longer you marinate the more flavoursome the pork.

Step 2. After the pork has marinated toss each piece of pork in the coating and place into hot oil and deep fry. Work in batches so that you don’t over-crowd the pan. Try not to sample too much while frying. haha!

Step 3. While the pork is draining on some paper towel whip up the very delicious and easy Sugar Free Sweet and Sour Sauce. Toss the pork in the sauce and serve.

This is a very filling meal, so don’t be surprised if you can’t finish a serve. This has to be the best keto sweet and sour pork recipe ever. What’s better is the whole family can enjoy this sugar free sweet and sour pork. Honestly, I doubt they will notice a difference.
