Crispy Low Carb Pork Belly Bites!
Could this be the ultimate keto dinner idea? We think so.
Bacon is a way of life for us keto folks. The best way to know you’re getting a quality piece of bacon is to make it yourself.. but that can take quite a bit of work and that’s a recipe for a different day. A much simpler and still delicious route to take is roasting some good old-fashioned pork belly.
Pork belly is sold in most supermarkets in the meat aisle and looks a lot like bacon. However, it hasn’t been cured yet. You can cure it yourself or you can enjoy it as is. We prefer roasting pork belly and then cranking up the temperature in the oven to give it that irresistible crunch we love.
Roasting pork belly is incredibly simple and brings out a ton of flavor. We took it a step further and rubbed the pork belly with a good amount of olive oil, salt, and other spices to bring out the smokey, umami flavors within. We decided to jazz up the cabbage in this way too! Cabbage is pretty mild in flavor and its texture completely changes when cooked. Before braising our cabbage to wilt it down, we tossed it in a warm, spice concoction we thought would go well with the roasted pork belly. The result was a match made in heaven we think anyone would enjoy!
One thing we would like to note: this dinner is quite heavy in calories! If 900 calories per serving are too much for you, feel free to reduce the servings to fit your needs.
