This Pork and Radish Hash is a great breakfast meal when you are craving potatoes but are following a low carb diet.
Sometimes I’m in a ‘breakfast for dinner’ type of mood. And on those days – I bring out the hash. (No – not that kind!)
I loved potato hash growing up, topped with a fried egg. It was always such a fun and tasty meal. Little did I know it was a way for my mum to use up leftovers – not that it would have mattered to me!
I enjoy experimenting with well-known dishes to see if I can make a healthier, low-carb version. For this dish, I took the concept of a potato hash, made it keto, and also made it a bit more hearty with the addition of some leftover pulled pork I had from a previous recipe.
The result is this Keto Pork & Radish Hash. A healthy, low-carb, hearty dish that is quick and simple to prepare. Perfect for a weeknight when you’re tight on time!
What I love about this dish is that you can easily replace the pulled pork with any other leftover meat you have on hand. Or skip the meat and have a light vegetarian meal. So many options!
When developing this Keto Pork & Radish Hash dish, I switched out the potatoes for radishes. At first glance, this may seem odd. Radishes – when raw – are bitter and juicy. Not very potato-like. After cooking, they have a fairly neutral taste, and in this recipe, you’ll be cooking them in onions, oregano, chili powder, and cumin which will cover the radish taste.
Is radish allowed in Keto?
Yes! Radishes are excellent on a keto or low-carb diet. While they are a root vegetable (which tend to be high carb), they are low in starch and high in fiber.
A 100g serving of radishes has 3.4 grams of carbohydrates, and 1.6 grams of fiber. That’s just 1.8 grams of net carbs per 100 grams!Print
