This is a dish I made some time ago, but took it down because the photo was old. I finally made it again and it is back up! This fried “rice” is awesome, I don’t miss the actual rice at all. Especially with the Char-Siu pork in it. I know, I know, Char-Siu isn’t low carb but its OK if you just use a tiny bit as I did. I also took out some of the traditional ingredients because of the carbs, and added in some other yummy things. If you are used to different veggies in your fried rice you can sub those or add them in, just be sure to check the carb counts first.
On Monday I am starting the low carb reset again under the first 2 weeks section of my blog (in the tab above). I did it a while ago and it didn’t do much for me, but I thought paired with Insanity maybe it will work out. Something is going on with my hormones I know it…there is no other explanation for my madness. I think because I have been low carb for so long the reset doesn’t work like it used to, plus 2 kids, plus the stress and how busy I always am, and then the big one…getting older. Why am I getting old? Why? I’m not even 30 yet, but my body things I am I guess. I can make a list from all this. To be a woman right?!
Anyway, I will let you guys read more about how to make fried “rice and less about hormones haha.
1 head of cauliflower
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
1 large handful of spinach leaves, chopped
10 crimini mushrooms, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
1″ piece of ginger, grated
2 cloves of garlic through garlic press
3 eggs, beaten
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp chili oil
1 tsp black pepper
3 boneless pork chops
2 Tbsp Char-Siu powder
Preheat 1 large pan on medium heat and add the sesame oil.
Add your carrot, onion and ginger to the pan and saute for about 5 minutes, then add in the garlic, mushrooms and spinach.
Cut the cauliflower into large chunks, and pulse it in your food processor until the cauliflower is chopped fine and resembles rice.
Add the cauliflower rice to the pan, and mix together with the other veggies.
Add in the soy sauce, chili oil and black pepper. Mix together occasionally and let cook for about 10 to 12 minutes until the veggies are tender.
While the “rice” is cooking, heat another pan on medium heat and add a little coconut oil.
Rub the pork with 1 Tbsp of Char Siu powder, its going to be very light since you aren’t using much.
Sear the pork on one side for about 3 minutes, then flip to the other side for another 3 minutes.
Add the other 1 Tbsp Char-Siu to the pan with 2 Tbsp of water. Mix together and let the pork cook in that for another 2 minutes.
Remove the pork from the pan and slice in thin strips, then add to the rice.
Recipe makes 6 servings
Each serving has 7.93 net carbs
*Just a note, a lot of stores do not have the Char Siu powder. I know here in Germany, my mom sends it to me. If you can get it, great, if not just add some salt and pepper to the pork and sear in the pan then drizzle a little soy sauce on top. If you do this instead, your carb count will be 4.93 net carbs per serving.
