Low Carb Peanut Butter Pork

This Keto pork recipe is rich with fats, flavor, and warming spices. Our slow-cooked pork is prepared with diced pork shoulder, aromatic garlic, sweet red onion, fragrant ground spices, a hint of tomato, smooth peanut butter, and creamy coconut milk. Once assembled, the pork is gently simmered on the stove until tender and the sauce reduced.

Can I Use a Different Nut Butter?

We have used a generous tablespoon of smooth peanut butter to add flavor, fats, and creaminess to our low carb Keto stew. When selecting peanut butter, look for a natural option that is free from added sugars where possible. If you would like to use an alternative nut butter, you could substitute the peanut butter for smooth almond butter. Please be sure to adjust your macros to account for any changes made to the original recipe.

Serving Suggestions

Our creamy Keto peanut butter pork makes a delicious and warming low carb dinner or lunch option. The pork and peanut sauce would be ideal served over hot cauliflower rice and can be garnished with fresh herbs to serve. Alternatively, this Keto recipe would also be delicious spooned over hot zucchini noodles or Shirataki noodles.
