Asian Inspired Ground Pork Bowls

Easy, minimal ingredient meals are my favorite. This recipe has become a favorite in my house because of how easy and delicious it is. Even my husband loves it. (gasp!) You all know how hard it is for me to get him to eat anything that isn’t picked up from a drive-thru window. The ground pork is cooked with garlic, onion, and ginger. Coconut aminos and fish sauce is added, and you let the pork sit in the pan and crisp up/caramelize. I cannot put into words how delicious this pork is. Serve it with cauliflower rice or white rice if you aren’t doing a round of Whole30.

Asian Inspired Ground Pork Bowls

This is a favorite dish of mine. It's super easy, flavorful, and Whole30 compatible. The pork gets crispy and has a sweet/salty flavor.



  • 1 1/2 T avocado oil
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, small dice
  • 1 T minced ginger root
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1/4 C + 2 T coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

  1. In a large skillet on medium-low heat, add the avocado oil, onion, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Sauté the mixture for about 4-5 minutes, stirring often to prevent it from burning. The onions should become translucent.
  2. Add the pork and chop it up into small pieces. Continue cooking until the pork is no longer pink and cooked through. Drain any excess fat from the pan.
  3. Add the coconut aminos and fish sauce. Stir everything together, and then spread the pork evenly in the pan. Let the pork mixture sit without stirring until the pork crisps up and caramelizes, about 7-10 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat, top it with the green onions, and serve over cauliflower rice or white rice(if you aren’t on a round of Whole30).
