This easy to make keto soup really satisfies hunger for Chinese food!


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into thin, short strips (about 1" long)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • small head green cabbage, shredded (about 8 cups)
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • green onions, chopped (optional for garnish)
  • toasted sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
  • sriracha (optional for added heat)


  1. Using a large pot, brown the ground pork on medium heat until just done. If desired, drain the fat (I choose not to).

  2. To the pot add sesame oil, onion, bell pepper, garlic, and ginger. Saute for 5 minutes or until onions are slightly translucent.

  3. Add the broth, cabbage, soy sauce/tamari, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.

  4. Bring the soup to a low simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted. If needed, season further with additional salt and pepper.

  5. Top each bowl with sliced green onions & toasted sesame seeds. For a little spice, add a squirt of sriracha per individual serving.
