Variety is the spice of life. If you’re sick and tired of eating chicken all the time, pork is a great alternative to get the fats and protein that you need on a keto diet.
Besides being a good source of fat and protein, pork is also rich in B vitamins, and minerals, which are essential for good health. Also, pork has a lower carbon footprint than beef, making it a great alternative if you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly red meat.
Today, I’m sharing 20 easy keto pork recipes. All the meals are keto-friendly to keep you on the right track.
I’ve also included all the macros, so you know exactly how many calories, carbs, fats, and proteins you’re consuming.
1. Easy Pulled Pork
Do you love slow cooker recipes? I sure do.
There’s nothing like letting your slow cooker do the cooking. After all, we’re all busy and no one has time to waste in the kitchen!
That’s why I love this easy pulled pork dish. Season your pork, place it in the slow cooker, and let the delicious aromas fill your house.
Now, your traditional pull pork is usually packed with sugar due to the sauce. However, we’re making this recipe low carb by making a savory sauce instead.
To make it, all you need to do is combine your spices with some chicken broth. And make sure you add some high quality unsweetened cocoa powder like this to enhance the flavors.
Once the pulled pork is done, add some coleslaw and dig right in. Here are more of my favorite keto slow cooker recipes that I recommend trying.
Also, if you don’t own a slow cooker by any chance, here is one that’s sturdy and great for a low budget.

2. Pork Chops with Super Creamy Mushroom Sauce
I’m a big pork chop lover, as I’m sure many of you are. With the cold weather, nothing warms up a belly more than delicious pork chops smothered in extra creamy mushroom sauce.
What I love most about this meal is that it takes only 25 minutes to cook from start to finish. What’s more, the pork chops are seared in a delicious mushroom butter sauce, giving the pork chops added flavor.
To make the sauce, all you need to do is sauté some mushrooms, parsley, garlic, and thyme in your pork chop drippings. Then add some salt, pepper, and some high-quality heavy cream like this.
If you’re not a big fan of mushrooms, that’s not a problem. Simply replace the mushrooms with onions or bell peppers for some added texture and freshness.
Serve with green beans or cauliflower rice, and you’ve got a complete meal. To make cauliflower rice, you’ll need only a couple things: a simple vegetable steamer like this one here and a food processor (low budget but sturdy).

3. Parmesan Dijon Pork Chops
Here is another pork chop meal you should definitely try.
Now, breaded pork chops are a nice alternative to your traditional pork chops. However, if you’re on a ketogenic diet, breading is a definite no-no.
To make these “breaded” pork chops, we’re replacing the breading with parmesan cheese. Now, you can’t go wrong with cheese!
These pork chops have a similar texture to breaded pork chops and taste amazing. And to make these pork chops even more flavorful, we’re marinating the pork chops overnight.
For the marinade, you’ll need some seasonings along with budget-friendly yet high-quality Dijon mustard like this to give the chops a bit of heat.
After marinating them, coat them with parmesan cheese and bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Then watch your family drool when you place the pork chops in front of them!

4. Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce
Don’t you love it when you serve stuffed meat? It just looks so fancy!
And this dish is just as good to look at, as it is to eat. This pork tenderloin is tender and packed with flavor thanks to the luscious melted cheese and savory mushroom sauce.
The savory mushroom sauce is surprisingly very easy to make. All you need to do is saute some mushrooms, then add garlic and beef broth and let it reduce.
And don’t forget to add some high-quality balsamic vinegar like this to the sauce, as it adds extra flavor.
Serve with a nice garden low carb salad for some freshness, and you’ve got a picture-perfect meal you’ll want to devour.
These porcelain baking dishes are great for cooking keto meals like this one.

5. Sheet Pan Bacon Wrapped BBQ Pork Tenderloin
What’s better than tender barbecue pork tenderloin? Barbecue pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon!
Now, I love barbecue sauce- it just makes everything taste smoky and sweet. However, meat covered in barbecue sauce can easily tank your ketogenic diet.
However, this dish contains only 6.7 grams of net carbs. That’s because we’re using this low carb barbecue rub that works great on chicken as well.
The best thing I love about this dish is that it is a one-sheet pan meal. Simply place your marinated pork and seasoned cauliflower on a greased sheet pan, and let your oven do the cooking.
And, as much as you’ll want to dig right in, please allow your pork to rest 10 minutes. It’ll make your meat that much juicier!
It’s definitely a delicious ketogenic dinner to try!

6. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Here’s another pulled pork dish with a different take on your traditional pulled pork. This dish is both sweet and savory thanks to the sauce.
To make the sauce, combine seasonings along with some tomato paste and coconut aminos. And make sure you add some good quality apple cider vinegar like this as it adds the sweetness you expect of a barbecue sauce.
Then, coat your pork in the sauce, and let it cook in your slow cooker for 10-12 hours on low to make the pork melt in your mouth delicious.
This makes the perfect meal prep dish. All you need to do is make your sauce the evening before.
The next morning, turn your slow cooker on, dump your ingredients together and head out the door. Then, come home to a delicious meal waiting to be served.

7. Meatballs with Mushroom Sauce
In this recipe, we’re pairing meatballs with mushroom sauce for a dish that will tantalize your taste buds.
This dish is simple, tasty and best of all, has only 2.8 grams of net carbs. The secret to keeping this dish so low carb is that we’re not using bread crumbs.
Instead, we’re using onions, eggs, and seasonings for the meatballs. Then, to add some moistness and creaminess, we’re serving the meatballs up in a sauce made of mushrooms, beef stock, and some cream cheese like this.
The great thing about these meatballs is that they pack a ton of flavor and are packed with fat- perfect for keeping you in ketosis. Serve up with some zucchini noodles, and you’ve got yourself a nice Italian meal.

8. Creamy Dijon Pork Chops
For a meal that packs in the flavor, and fat you’ve got to try this dish.
The pork chops are juicy on the inside and crisp on the outside and the bacon pieces are nice and crisp. However, it is truly the creamy, buttery sauce that makes the dish.
To make the sauce, you’ll need some seasonings, butter, chicken broth, cream, parmesan cheese and some good quality Dijon mustard like this. For freshness, we’re also adding spinach to our sauce.
With this meal, you’re getting tons of fat and protein. This makes it the perfect meal for your growing family and for those post-workout days.

9. Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork
Mac and cheese reminds me of my childhood- those carefree days when there were no bills to pay. Plus, mac and cheese is just plain delicious.
However, your typical mac and cheese is by very definition, loaded with carbs. That is until now.
This mac and cheese is low in net carbs because we’re using cauliflower instead of pasta. Cauliflower is a great low carb, low-calorie way to get your fiber and some vitamin C and K, to boot.
Plus this cauliflower mac and cheese doesn’t disappoint thanks to the delicious, creamy cheese sauce.
To make the cheese sauce, all you need to do is combine some heavy cream, sharp cheddar cheese and a bit of Dijon mustard in a saucepan, and stir until the cheese melts.
And don’t forget to top your mac and cheese with some yummy pork rinds like this, to give it some extra crunch.
Overall, this is a great example of a keto comfort food recipe!

10. Air Fryer Pork Chops
Are there any fry lovers in the house? This dish is for you.
Now, I’m a big fry lover too, but fries will get you out of ketosis-quick. Just one small order of fries can pack a whopping 40 grams of net carbs!
With this dish, you’re getting a ton of flavor with only 2.6 grams of net carbs. To make the fries, we’re breading some thinly sliced pork chops in a mixture of pork rinds, parmesan cheese, seasoning, and parmesan cheese.
Then, we’re placing them in a high-quality air fryer like this, so that they turn out light, and not greasy.
What you get are crispy, cheesy, savory fries that are sure to keep you satiated because they’re high in fat and protein.

11. Air Fryer Salt and Pepper Crispy Pork Belly Crack
I’m a big fan of chips. Whoever invented them deserves a Nobel Prize, in my humble opinion.
Chips are so yummy and so addictive- you can’t stop at just one, making them the perfect guilty pleasure. But chips will most definitely ruin your diet.
So, what’s a gal (or guy) to do when they have a hankering for chips? Try this air fryer salt and pepper crispy pork belly crack instead.
They’re crispy and crunchy, have tons of fat and protein and best of all, have zero net carbs!
To make them, all you have to do is cut your pork belly into bite-sized pieces, coat them with salt and pepper and fry them in your air fryer. To change the flavors up, you can try seasoning them with some keto barbecue seasoning like this.
This is just a great ketogenic snack.

12. Pecan Crusted Pork Chops
I like this spin on your traditional breaded pork chops. It’s simply genius.
Instead of breading, we’re using crushed pecans instead. And not only are pecans yummy, but they’re also nutritious. To crush them, you’ll need an electric grinder like this one here.
They’re a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and vitamins and minerals as well. How about that for a powerhouse supper!
These pork chops are juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside and are super easy to make. Plus, they’re super fancy.
So if you’re stuck on ideas for a dinner party, you can serve these up with some garlic-flavored spinach, and your guests will certainly be impressed.

13. Keto Carnitas Slow Cooker Lettuce Wraps
Now, I’m a big fan of pulled pork, but after all, pulled pork can get boring. If you’re looking to change up your pulled pork recipe, this one is for you.
For dinner, we’re serving up carnitas. Carnitas are the Mexican equivalent of pulled pork. You can meal prep them for a ketogenic lunch too!
This dish has some heat, so if you like things spicy, this dish is for you. There is also a hint of sweetness because we’re using red onions.
Apart from the seasonings, we’re also adding some orange juice and lime juice to amp up the flavor. I like having some lime juice, so I’m never stuck when a recipe calls for lime juice.
Not only is this dish delicious, it only takes 5 minutes of prep time, so it’s great for those days when you don’t feel like slaving in the kitchen. So, this is definitely a very quick keto dinner you can make.
Serve these on bib lettuce or green cabbage, along with your favorite toppings, and your tummy will thank you.

14. Paleo Pork Egg Roll in a Bowl (Crack Slaw)
Whenever I go to a Chinese buffet, I have to get my egg rolls. Egg rolls are vessels of deliciousness.
But just one egg roll can pack 23.5 grams of net carbs. And as good as they taste, they’re not worth ruining your diet.
This egg roll is heavy on flavor, but low in net carbs as one roll contains just 5.5 grams of net carbs. An added bonus is that it’s also high in protein, unlike your typical egg roll.
To cut down on the carbs, we’re making a deconstructed egg roll without the roll. Without the roll, the filling is amazing and is pretty addictive due to the seasonings and fresh ingredients.
Now, this dish has some heat as we’re using Sriracha sauce like this. But if you don’t like the heat, you can just leave it out.
Overall, it’s a great ketogenic freezer meal!

15. Cast Iron Skillet Pork Chops
Do you love bone-in pork chops? I sure do, and the best part for me is gnawing at the bits of deliciousness sticking to the bone!
These pork chops are tender and flavorful, and the pan sauce is creamy and tasty. Paired with some roasted asparagus, this dish is finger-licking good.
Best of all, this dish is ready in only 25 minutes, making it a great dish for when you’re short on time. Plus, it’s packed with protein, great for growing kids.
For this dish, you’ll need a high quality, budget-friendly cast iron skillet like this. Cast iron skillets are great if you don’t want your food to burn, and don’t want to use pans that are coated with toxic non-stick coatings.

16. Keto Nachos Using Pork Rinds
If you have leftover carnitas or pulled pork lying around, they’re great for making nachos.
Now, as much as I love eating nachos, they’re also high in carbs. With this dish, you can still have the crunch, but without the carbs.
For the meal, we’re using pork rinds in place of nachos. Then we’re topping them with leftover carnitas and an oeey, gooey, cheesy, spicy, yummy cheese sauce.
To make the cheese sauce, all you have to do is melt some heavy cream and good quality cream cheese like this. Then add some cheddar cheese, salt, cumin powder, and chili.
If you don’t have any carnitas or pulled pork lying around don’t sweat it- after all, who leaves that yummy goodness lying around? Shredded rotisserie chicken works just as well.

17. Smothered Pork Chops
Now, there’s nothing better than tucking into pork chops smothered in an onion gravy when the weather outside is chilly. It is so comforting.
Now, don’t get me wrong; pork chops are great on their own. But when they’re smothered in gravy, they’re simply over the top.
These pork chops are juicy and delicious thanks in large part to the gravy. And the gravy is super easy to make.
To make it, all you need to do is simmer some onions in your pork chops drippings along with some butter, heavy cream, seasonings and some all-natural low sodium chicken broth like this.
Once you’ve made the gravy, simmer your cooked pork chops in it to soak up the flavors. Serve with mashed cauliflower or broccoli.
To make the mash, you’ll need a cheap but sturdy vegetable steamer and a decent food processor like this one here.

18. Pressure Cooker Keto Dae Ji Bulgogi Korean Spicy Pork
If you have a hankering for some grilled pork in the middle of winter, then you’ve got to try this dish. Bulgogi is a spicy Korean dish made of marinated grilled pork.
With this dish, however, we’re skipping the grill and heading for the pressure cooker. Here is an affordable and very good quality pressure cooker I always recommend and own myself.
Now, I like my grilled meat as much as the next person, but firing up the grill can be a pain, particularly in the cold.
Then, we’re finishing up the meat by letting it caramelize over a nice hot iron skillet like this. What you get at the end are hot, spicy, crunchy morsels of goodness.
Now, this dish is higher in net carbs, but still pretty decent, so you want to watch your portion sizes.
