  • Cooked pulled pork, leftover pulled pork shoulder shredded, or pork butt would all work well in this low carb casserole
  • Garlic powder
  • Black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Frozen cauliflower rice cooked
  • Shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese blend
  • Real bacon bits or slices of cooked bacon crumbled
  • Chopped green onions for garnish
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce

Making your own keto barbecue sauce is a great idea if you want to ensure you have a low carb option. I used my recipe for Keto BQQ sauce and added a small can of tomato sauce to extend the sauce. The full recipe is included in the recipe card.

It uses a keto sweetener that gives it an amazing flavor and keeps it in line with the macros of a ketogenic diet.

You could, however, substitute the homemade BBQ sauce for a jar of G Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ sauce to save extra time.

Just note that using a premade sauce purchased at the grocery store will likely increase the carb count.

This delicious casserole has 7.9 net carbs per serving using our barbecue sauce recipe.

How To Make A Keto Pulled Pork Casserole

To make this keto-friendly BBQ pulled pork casserole recipe, you’ll start by cooking the frozen cauliflower rice in the microwave according to the instructions on the bag, placing it in a medium-sized bowl, and seasoning it with salt and pepper.

If you need to rice your cauliflower, you can refer to our keto cauliflower rice recipe for instructions.

Next, you must cook your pulled pork or use leftover pork instead.

Assembling The Low-Carb Pulled Pork Casserole

To assemble the pork casserole, start by adding the layer of cooked cauliflower rice to the bottom of a buttered 9×13-inch casserole dish.

Then add half of the prepared BBQ sauce over the cauliflower rice and spread it evenly.

Next, add the shredded pulled pork on top of the cauliflower rice layer.

Then drizzle the remaining sugar-free BBQ sauce over the top of the pork, and sprinkle the shredded cheese and bacon bits over the entire casserole.

At this point, you can choose to cover the casserole well and refrigerate it to bake within the next two days or freeze it and bake it at a later date.

Bake the casserole in a preheated 350-degree oven for 35–45 minutes until the cheese melts and has lightly browned around the edges.

Garnish with chopped green onions and parsley before enjoying.

Store your leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days, or freeze them for up to a month.

I never did figure out what the salt, pepper and onion powder were for. Additionally, I didn't see on what temp this casserole should be baked. (I have it at 375°)

Nonetheless, it looks and smells delicious! Can't wait to try it in a few short minutes. Looks like a keeper to me!!
