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.

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’re lower carb and better for you.

I like to get angel hair cole slaw in a bag, but any bagged cole slaw should be fine.

Hope you enjoy it!
