In this post I am sharing an amazing recipe for healthy Low Carb Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice.
I need to have a heart to heart with y’all and share something. I’m the person who reads recipes and see a line…something like “You won’t even miss the bread” and I scream LIAR! I. Will. Miss. The. Bread. HaHa!
I know many of you can identify with me on that. I must also confess that I was very skeptical about cauliflower rice. Not only did I like it…I LOVED it! I’m completely amazed, no kidding! It took making it myself to make me a believer.
Honestly…if I had not cooked this myself, I wouldn’t have know it wasn’t rice. The real rice. Cauliflower rice will go into our regular meal rotation list from now on.
This delicious low carb fried cauli rice is delicious and easy to prepare. Better yet, the leftovers re-heat wonderfully in the microwave without compromising taste or quality. Regular fried rice is at its best when fresh made. Cauli fried rice is wonderful fresh made or re-heated.
I really can’t say enough good things about it and I would tell ya the truth! I don’t share recipes that I don’t believe in and test myself.

Skinny Fried Rice
I have been thrilled to be able to share some healthier recipe options with you. Not only did y’all request some healthy options…I wanted to incorporate more healthy dishes into my diet. It’s been a win for all of us.
I do have one more confession to share with y’all. I can’t even remember the last time that I bought cauliflower. It’s been years. I have never considered cauliflower to be one of my favorite vegetables and I just don’t buy it.
My husband loves cauliflower though. Poor guy. I’ve been a bit selfish with the grocery shopping I suppose. He doesn’t complain though. Not to me anyways. Have you heard anything? 😯
I decided to take the risk on cauliflower rice because it was marked down at the grocery store. I’m so glad that I did!
Low Carb Pork Fried Rice
Making this low carb pork fried rice is easy and the meal comes together quickly. It takes just a few minutes of prep work and you’re ready to get cooking. I’ll take you through it step by step.
Step 1: Make the sauce: In a liquid measuring cup combine soy sauce, ginger paste, toasted sesame seed oil and minced garlic. Set aside.
Step 2: Prep the remaining ingredients: Dice the onion and carrots and set aside. Dice up the boneless pork chop cutlets and set aside. Whisk together two eggs in a small bowl and set aside. Have the remaining ingredients within reach: frozen peas, cauliflower rice and seasonings.
Pork Fried Cauli Rice
Step 3: Let’s cook the Pork Cauliflower Fried Rice: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. I cook on a gas cook top so it heats things up really well. Adjust so that your skillet is a bit on the hot side if needed but not on a high setting. Next, add vegetable or peanut oil to the skillet as it heats up.
When hot, add the diced carrots and onion. Saute until tender then push aside and add the diced pork. Season with salt and pepper.
Turn the pork while cooking three to 4 minutes until done then add the cauliflower rice (make sure it is thawed if you had it in the freezer). Add the frozen peas and pour the sauce you made earlier over everything.
Stir together and cook until heated through. Lastly, push aside the eggs and scramble cook until done then mix with the rest of the fried cauli rice mixture.
