One Pan Keto Sesame Pork and Green Beans has just 4.5 net carbs per serving and is loaded with tangy Asian flavor!
During a chat on Instagram last week I asked what recipes people wanted to see low carb versions of. One of the overwhelming responses was Asian food! Just like me, you guys are missing your friend rice, pad thai noodles and all of those other favorites. No worries, I’ve got plenty of low carb Asian recipes to help curb those cravings. We are kicking things off with these Keto Sesame Pork and Green Beans. This recipe takes just one pan and is ready in about 30 minutes!
How do I make Keto Sesame Pork and Green Beans?To make this dish we start by slicing our pork chops into nice slim pieces. You want to make sure you slice them fairly evenly and not too thick so they cook quickly. Sauté the pork in a large skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side until they have a nice gold color. Once the meat is cooked we pour in our homemade sesame sauce.
The sauce has sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar and pinch of red pepper. It is a rich mixture that is slightly sweet and compliments the pork perfectly! We add the sauce to the skillet along with several handfuls of fresh green beans. Stir the mixture well so the sauce is completely coated, cover and reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to cook for 5 minutes.
This is great served all by itself or with sautéed cauliflower rice!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1.5 pounds Boneless Pork Chops
For the Sesame Sauce:
- 1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar Swerve
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons minced ginger
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon sriracha (optional if you prefer spicy dishes)
- 3 cups fresh green beans
Heat the oil large skillet to medium heat.
Carefully slice the pork chops into thin slices.
Allow the meat to cook 3-4 minutes without stirring to give the meat a chance to brown. Stir and cook 3-4 additional minutes until pork is cooked though.
In a small measuring cup add the sesame sauce ingredients and stir well.
Pour the sauce into the skillet, add the green beans and stir well.
Reduce heat to medium low and cover, cook 5 more minutes.
You can sub the pork for another protein if your choice!
