To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients and prepare the batter. Add the ingredients together until combined.

In a large wok or skillet, add the sesame oil to the frying pan and add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds.

2. Keto Steak Marinade Recipe
If you love meat and a keto diet, then this recipe is for you. Serve with the side of salad or your favorite baked or fried potatoes.
Cut steak, peppers, and onion into equal-sized pieces (about 1-1.5″)
In a large freezer bag, combine the oil, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, honey, onion powder, and chipotle powder if using.
Add steak and let marinate for at least one hour and up to 8 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium-high.
Skewer your beef cubes and vegetables, alternating as you like. I try to ensure 3-5 cubes of beef per skewer, depending on how long your skewers are.
Place kababs directly over the heat, cooking for 4-5 minutes before flipping and cooking another 4-5 minutes.
5. Skillet Fried Chicken
This Skillet Fried Chicken recipe is perfect for a rainy day. It creates a nice crunchy crust and very moist, tender meat. Not an easy combination to achieve.
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt, divided
- 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
- 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 3–4-lb. chicken, cut into 10 pieces
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Peanut oil (for frying)
- Whisk 1 Tbsp. Salt, 2 tsp. Black pepper, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, and onion powder in a small bowl. Season chicken with spices. Place chicken in a medium bowl, cover, and chill overnight.
- Let chicken stand covered at room temperature for 1 hour. Whisk buttermilk, egg, and 1/2 cup water in a medium bowl. Whisk flour, cornstarch, remaining 1 Tbsp. Salt, and remaining 1 Tbsp.
- Pour oil into a cast-iron skillet or another heavy straight-sided skillet (not nonstick) to a depth of 3/4″.
- Working with 1 piece at a time (use 1 hand for wet ingredients and the other for dry ingredients), dip chicken in buttermilk mixture, allowing excess to drip back into the bowl. Dredge in flour mixture; tap against bowl to shake off excess. Place 5 pieces of chicken in skillet. Fry chicken, turning with tongs every 1–2 minutes until skin is deep golden brown. Takes about 10 minutes for wings and 12 minutes for thighs, legs, and breasts.
- Using tongs, remove chicken from skillet, allowing excess oil to drip back into the skillet, transfer chicken to prepared rack.
- Repeat with remaining chicken pieces; let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
