Low Carb Chinese BBQ PorkDid you think that enjoying Roast Red Pork was a pastime that you’d miss on Keto? Think again! Our tender Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork is spot on without any added sugar.

This recipe has been tested on high carb lovers who were astounded when they discovered the recipe is far from than the classic Red Pork from the local Chinese restaurant.

We prefer to use pork neck as it is marbled with fat and connective tissue which stops the pork from becoming dry and adds to the stickiness of the sauce. If you can’t get pork neck, shoulder is also a good option.

The recipe makes 6 serves, which is half of each strip.

Ingredients for Making Your Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork:

Instructions for Making Your Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the Low Carb Sweet Soy, sesame oil, garlic, five spice and a few drops of food colouring (if using).
  2. Place the 3 pieces of pork neck 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.
