Sweet Spicy Keto Pork Belly
I have finally mastered how to make a crispy pork belly with a sweet and spicy taste.
Appetizer, Main Course, Side Dish
Slow Cooked Pork Belly
Apple Cider Vinegar
Chili Pepper Flakes
Tamari or Coconut Aminos can be used as a substitute using the same quantity.
Cut the pork belly into finger sized pieces
Place a medium sized pot on the stove at high heat and add the chicken stock and the remaining ingredients and give it a good swirl
Once boiling add the pork belly
Lower the heat and cover with lid, allow to simmer for about 2 hours
After 2 hours, strain and chop the pork into bite sized chunks
Heat up olive oil in a medium sized frying pan and add the pork
Allow pork to fry up, it will look floppy and flubbery at first but be patient.
Keep turning the pork so it becomes browned on all sides
It may start to crackle and pop, I used this splatter screen to avoid pork belly flying all over the stove
Once browned add the soy or tamari or coconut aminos and the remaining ingredients.
Continue to fry, you may need to lower the temp occasionally if its crackling too much but increase it again to get the pork nice an crispy.
I had to lower the temp and then increase several times in order to get the pork belly just right
Once its dark, sticky and a little bit crispy it's good to go!
