Keto Pork Steak with Zaatar

Keto Pork Steak with Zaatar

Zaatar is a fantastic middle eastern spice with a base of sumac that goes so well with this tasty recipe for a Keto Pork Steak.


It is available in most supermarkets, and paired with delicious fatty pork, it melts in your mouth and creates an interesting flavour profile.

Keto Pork Steaks


I love to pair my Keto Pork Steak with this favourite salad in our house –  Keto Tabouleh,. The freshness pairs so well with the richness of pork steak.


By flash frying the Keto Pork Steak in a frying pan then finishing in the oven, you keep the beautiful juices in the meat and end up with a succulent and flavourful dinner.
