Chinese flavours pair so well with pork, unfortunately they often bring a lot of sugar with them. Thankfully, some of the flavours can be replicated like with these Keto Chinese Pulled Pork.
This is a Keto version of Char Siu (that yummy pork inside the sticky pork buns!)
Some of my favourite ‘pre-keto’ recipes included so much honey or sugar. I didn’t even realise. If I had them now, I would probably go on a week long sugar binge.
The slow cooker is your friend yet again with this recipe.
Set it and forget it, 8 hours later your house will be smelling like your favourite Yum Cha restaurant.
I use my Sugar Free Tomato Ketchup for this recipe.
You can use whatever sugar-free low carb tomato sauce you can find. Always remember to check those carbs though!
I love serving this with something fresh and crunchy to contrast the texture, such as my Keto Chinese Cabbage Salad
Or some Keto Coconut Rice on the side to balance the rich and sweet flavours.
Another great dish for leftovers the next day!

Bringing out the beautiful sweetness of the pork, use homemade chicken broth if you can in this dish as it will reward you tenfold!
- 1 kg pork shoulder or loin
- 1 cup chicken broth homemade is best
- 4 tablespoons sugar free tomato sauce homemade is best
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons garlic paste
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 5 drops liquid sweetner
- 2 teaspoons ginger paste
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Place the pork in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Combine all remaining ingredients and pour over the pork, ensuring it gets underneath as well.
Cook on low for 7 hours. Shred the pork with a fork and stir through the sauce, cooking for a further 30 - 60 minutes until the sauce has thickened to your liking, or eat it straight away.
