Making low carb simple
- Crush the tough part of the lemongrass with the broad side of a knife or pestle. Chop it finely.
- Heat the coconut oil in a large wok or a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the lemongrass, ginger, garlic, curry, and chili. Sauté for a couple of minutes before adding the chicken. Season with salt. Fry until golden.
- Add the leek and bell pepper and give them a good mix. Sauté for a couple of minutes. The vegetables should still be crunchy.
- Add the coconut cream and let simmer for 5–10 minutes until everything is warm.
- Top with cilantro and sprinkle over the lime zest before serving.
Did you know you can store ginger in the freezer? Just wash it really well, dry it, and you can grate it still frozen with the clean skin on!
For gods sake, give the place a break.
No grovel intended.
Kind regards Eddie
For those concerned about frying food/meat. If you don't like it, don't do it. As for me, a nice piece of chicken with skin and bones lightly fried is a thing to enjoy.
PS. I left the skin and bones on, they were delicious.
This is very good and I'm trying to save it the lazy, I mean, digital way. Thank you.
And also thank you to Eddie Mitchell.
I'm English and have spoken English all my life ;-) To fry means to fry, such as in a frying pan ... a very shallow vessel - perfectly designed for FRYING the good ol' full English breakfast (which isn't deep fried like chips :O ). Deep frying, as per chips, is ... deep frying in a large saucepan ir deep fryer. Saute ... that's not English, it's French :-D
Sorry for late answer, yes it's from a tin. :)
thank you thank you thank you for helping me find a way to eat all the delicious foods I love and loose weight and be healthy!
Absolutely beautiful recipe. We just had this for dinner with some Modifications as I’m allergic to Garlic & my husband can not handle Chilli. So I just made it with coriander & added some zucchini noodles. So next time I will just add some lime juice & lime zest to the ingredients. Otherwise this is one of my favourites. At only 9grams of Carbs it’s to good to ignore.
Thank you for your beautiful recipes.
You can't beat simple and delicious :)
You would need to check the label for your sausages to see if they have any carbs.
Since this is too much meat for my wok, I used a big ceramic non-stick frying pan instead. Since too high a heat is bad for the pan, I just do it on medium heat tops. Not a hard change, and things always turn out just fine.
Last thing: like other DD fans, I see comments from time to time that are (to my mind) unjustified. Anybody who takes the time to understand how keto works, and there's lots of resources here on the site to learn, won't make critical comments about macros, how much fat is in the recipe, or any number of other things. I've met plenty of people who say they want to do keto but don't bother to learn about it first so they just don't understand how these things work. I wish people who have something bad to say would educate themselves before making those comments. I think the whole DD team is awesome and does a great job - keep up the good work!!! and thank you :-)
This is 8g net carbs per serving. The 13g is for total carbs.
Great! Thanks for sharing!
I added quite a few veggies such as cut up tomatoes, florets of broccoli, cut up Spring onions and baby spinach (this I just threw in 2 minutes before serving). It makes more veggies for my kids and spreads it out a bit :-)
Great! So glad everyone enjoys it!
