Keto Pork Tenderloin

I don’t know if it’s my midwest upbringing, but pork recipes are on a regular rotation in our household and on the blog.

If I had to guess, I’d say there are about a million different ways you can make a pork recipe. Pork is pretty much a blank canvas to write, errrrr, cook on.

This keto pork tenderloin recipe falls under that category for sure, making it easy to serve your family.

Making Pork into Stir Fry

1. Use a large frying pan or a wok to make this stir fry.

Farm Girl Tip: I went to a kitchen specialty store to buy a wok several years ago. The lady working there talked me into getting this large pan instead of a wok because of our family size (five) and its versatility.

We also love that it has two handles for moving heavy dishes from oven to stovetop or table.

Though it was a bit of an investment I use it almost every single day, which I can say with 100 percent certainty I couldn’t say about a specialty wok!

If you have a wok, I say go for it and pull that baby out!

2. Heat olive oil, add pork in two batches, if necessary. What you don’t want to do here is crowd the pan! Once the pork is browned on all sides, add the bell pepper, green onion, ginger, cashews and garlic powder. Stir fry the veggies until they become crisp-tender, around 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the bok choy, sesame oil, and tamari. Continue to stir fry until the bok choy wilts and the other ingredients are coated, approximately 1-2 minutes.

Remove from heat and transfer to individual serving plates. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired, and serve immediately.

Substitution Ideas

  • Use a large skillet instead of a wok
  • Substitute fresh spinach for the bok choy
  • Use any color of bell pepper – green, red, yellow, or orange

What to Serve with Keto Pork Tenderloin Stir Fry

The beauty of this dish is that it’s an all in one meal! Serve over cauliflower rice or low carb noodles.

This is one of the best stir fry recipes I’ve ever made! I’m on COVID-19 lockdown and had to cook with what I had ion hand. I doubled the recipe. I didn’t have bok Choy so I used sliced zucchini. I didn’t have green onion so I used half a cooking onion. This was a big hit with everyone! That you for sharing! I think I’ll be making this weekly!
