Keto Chicken Fried Cauliflower Steaks

  • Author: Kyndra Holley

  • Diet: Gluten Free


These Keto Chicken Fried Cauliflower Steaks have all the crispy and delicious flavors of a traditional Country Fried Steak Recipe, but in a keto-friendly side dish recipe.


  • medium head cauliflower
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • avocado oil, for frying


  1. Remove the leaves and trim the stem of the cauliflower. Slice it into 4 even steaks, slicing from the top, down through the core.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Place each slice of cauliflower into the boiling water for about 3 minutes each, until just tender. Remove from the water, dry with a paper towel, and set aside.
  4. Fork whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a second shallow bowl.
  5. Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of avocado oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Dip each slice of cauliflower into the egg wash and then press each side into the breading mixture.
  7. Fry each slice for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until crispy and golden brown.
  8. Serve with Creamy Chive Blue Cheese Dressing or Dairy Free Ranch Dressing.


  • net carbs per serving: 3.5g
  • Storage: Store leftover chicken fried cauliflower steaks in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Reheating: I recommend reheating this in a pan on the stove top, in the oven, or in an air fryer.
  • Make it vegetarian: To make this a vegetarian keto side dish, use almond flour, finely grated parmesan cheese, golden flaxseed meal, or even a combination of the 3 in place of the pork rinds.
  • Make it dairy free: To make this dairy free, simply serve it with my Dairy Free Ranch Dressing recipe in place of the blue cheese.
