Keto Chow Mein

Shredded cabbage starts to look like chow mein when cooked in chorizo. Hence the name keto chow mein. The taste is amazing — savory and a little more crisp than traditional chow mein.

You can make this in 20 minutes or less. #winning

This dish reminds me of some of the delicious and indulgent entrées I used to get from Chinese takeout places.

Shopping Notes

Check the ingredients labels on the chorizo and make sure to get a wheat-free option. They have fewer carbs and over all, are just better for you.

I like to get angel hair coleslaw in a bag, but any bagged coleslaw (cabbage) should be fine.

Hope you enjoy it!

  2. This looks SO good and sounds easy. I am adding cabbage to my grocery list for next week.

    Where is the 6gm of sugar coming from? I’m assuming the chorizo or cabbage? I have different brands here in FL than you, so I am going to try to lower that.

    Thank You!

  3. I may have to try this. I looked chorizo up to see what was in it thinking it was like scrapple. Sounds like it’s just another name for sausage!

  4. Used beef sirloin as pork products don’t work for me. With or without eggs, makes a tasty meal. Cabbage makes a great pasts replacement.
