Recipe Notes

Note 1
If on Whole30, make sure your hot sauce or sriracha is compliant. Make my Whole30 Sriracha super easily or use something like Frank's Red Hot. Frank's Red Hot is also keto-friendly, whereas conventional sriracha is not.

Note 2
If keto or low carb, use Lite Tamari or Bragg's Aminos for the least number of carbs, as shown in the second nutrition label.

Note 3
If Whole30, make sure your mayonnaise is compliant. I have an awesome 30-Second Immersion Blender Mayonnaise recipe that is totally foolproof!

Note 4
If keto, skip red onion to save about 1g net carb per serving.

Wine Pairings

NO wine on Whole30 — no exceptions. I recommend buying wine from Scout and Cellar, especially for lower carb or sugar and the health conscious. There's no added sugar to these wines, and they're all much lower in carbs, calories, and sugar. For me, there's no headache or fogginess the next day!

This recipe has pork, Asian flavors, and is spicy, so you can get away with a variety of wine pairings. I recommend:
