Juicy and delicious patties with an amazing sauce!



For Pork Patties

  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks green onion, minced
  • 2 ribs celery, minced
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tbsps Coconut Amino Acids
  • 1/2 teaspoon, Salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup unflavored MCT Oil Powder (see post substitutions)
  • 1 tbsp Cooking Fat

For the Sauce

  • 1/4 cup diced, peeled, ginger root
  • 4 clove Garlic, raw
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Amino Acids
  • 1 tbsp Fish Sauce, Red Boat
  • 2 tbsp (15 g), Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Oil – Sesame
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard


  1. In a large bowl crumble in the ground pork. Add in the minced celery, green onion (scallion), and garlic. Add in the coconut aminos, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Add in the eggs, mix until well combined.
  3. Add in the MCT powder (coconut flour, starch and/or gelatin) and mix in with your fingers until the meat mix feels like a sticky dough. Shape approximately 8 patties with your meat mix.
  4. Heat a large castiron skillet over medium heat. While it comes to temperature, make the sauce.
  5. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor until thick, chunky sauce forms. Set aside.
  6. Heat the cooking fat in the skillet. Cook 3-4 at a time, not to crowd the skillet. Cook 5 minutes each side or until the center feels firm like the palm of your hand and both sides are browned. Repeat until all of the meat mix is cooked. Add a little fat to the skillet between batches.
  7. Serve with ginger sauce on the side, garnished with sesame seeds and more green onion.
