Did you think that enjoying delicious marinated Chinese BBQ Pork Car Siu was something that you’d miss on Keto?
Think again! Our tender Keto Car Siu is spot taste without any added sugar like the original Chinese recipe.
This Keto Chinese BBQ Pork char siu recipe has been tested on high carb lovers who were astounded when they discovered it was low-carb with no sugar added.
We prefer to use pork butt (also called neck) as it is marbled with fat and connective tissue that stops the meat from becoming dry and adds to the stickiness of the sauce. If you can’t get pork neck then the shoulder is also a good option.
This Keto Pork Car Siu recipe makes 6 serves, which is half of each strip.

Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork Char Siu Ingredients

If you can’t find pork butt the shoulder is the next best ingredient for your Keto Char Siu.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the Low Carb Sweet Soy, sesame oil, garlic, five spice and a few drops of food coloring (if using).
  2. Place the 3 pieces of pork butt into a suitable dish for marinating – glass or ceramic will prevent the transfer of the coloring to the dish.
  3. Pour half the marinade over the pork and, wearing food-safe disposable gloves, massage the marinade into the pork.
  4. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge overnight. Store the remaining marinade in the fridge to be used for basting when the pork is cooking.
  5. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  6. Line a roasting tray with foil, add the roasting rack and spray lightly with oil.
  7. Place the strips of pork onto the rack, baste with the leftover marinade and place into the oven.
  8. Cook for 30-45 minutes (depending on the thickness of your pork), turning and basting with the marinade 2 or 3 times.
  9. Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with Asian greens or Cauliflower Rice.

You can make your Keto Chinese BBQ Pork Car Siu ahead of time, cook it then refrigerate for up to 4 days.
