Pork is a great, cheap meat for the KETO lifestyle, but I think it often gets overlooked. So I made you Sage and Onion Pork, to show you just how delicious, simple, fast, and cheap dinner can be when you invite the other white meat home.
I was inspired by a long walk in a beautiful valley near Yakima, Washington. Head over to my blog for the inside scoop on my day trip and how sage got all up in my head in the process. The result was Brian and I recording a podcast on sage where we also shared this Sage and Onion Pork recipe.
Serve your Sage and Onion Pork over a bed of buttered zoodles or buttered shredded cabbage. Buttered miracle noodles or miracle rice would be great, too. I served it with Tarrrgon Green Beans and Celery Leek Stir-fry (in our Sides Cookbook). Or, you can be like Brian and just eat a bowl of Sage and Onion Pork with nothing else.

What You Do

- Bring the pork and sauce to the boil, lower the heat and simmer – stirring frequently – until sauce has thickened – about 5 minutes.
Top Recipe Tips
- Konjac flour takes a minute or two to thicken, so don’t panic if it doesn’t immediately turn thick like cornstarch would. A little patience, like a little konjac flour, goes a long way.
