keto pork rinds and dipping sauce

Keto dip for pork rinds

So before we get to the sauce, we better look at the pork rinds themselves. They are a great keto resource for people who have lost their gallbladder.

Can you eat pork rinds on keto?

Are pork rinds keto? Yes! Are pork rinds high in carbs or low? Most definitely, low! They are just as keto kosher as keto crackers.

Due to the low amount of carbohydrates contained in pig rinds, it is simple to enjoy this snack on a regular basis. However, it is important to pay attention to the macros and thoroughly read the labels in order to know exactly what you are getting.

Best Pork Rinds For Keto

Pork rinds seasoned with sea salt are among the most delicious pork rinds available, keto or otherwise. These are especially fluffy, and they disintegrate in your mouth. 

Flavored pork rinds:

In sour cream and onion, on pizza, nachos, and other foods as well.

Pork rinds cooked in the microwave are a low-quality keto choice, but they are fast and simple to prepare. They become crunchier after being cooked in a microwave.

Pork rind “panko”: These rinds, once reduced to a fine powder, are an excellent substitute for breadcrumbs.

How to make keto pork rinds

1 pound Pork skin

1 tsp Sea salt (or 3/4 tsp for less salty)

Avocado oil (for frying)

Turn the temperature in the oven up to 300 degrees F. (149 degrees C).

A baking sheet should be prepared with parchment paper.

In the event that the hog skin has lard attached to it, remove the lard from the skin very carefully, taking care not to cut through the skin. (It is okay if there is still a small bit of lard attached, but try to remove as much of it as you can, which will ensure that the handmade pork rinds will turn out fluffy and crispy.)

Small rectangles, approximately 1 inch by 2 inches, should be cut from the pig skin.

Make sure to use a sharp knife. A dull one can slip and slice off a digit or two!

Place the pig skins, fat side down, in a single layer on the baking sheet. Make sure they don’t contact each other and make sure the fat side is facing down.

Add some salt from the sea.

Bake for an hour and a half to two hours, until the food is dried out, crispy, and golden.

Take the pig rinds out of the pan and place them on some paper towels to dry off.

You can let the pig rinds cool down and then enjoy them right away. But they will taste much better

better (and be fluffier) if you deep fry them, as will be instructed in the following steps.

Avocado oil pork rinds

To make rinds in avocado oil, bring 1.5 to 2 inches of it to a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit in a big skillet or dutch oven (177 degrees C). Check the temperature with a meat thermometer.

To prevent the pan from being overcrowded, add the dry pig flesh to the grease in stages rather than all at once.

Cook them for one to three minutes, until they have puffed up.

There is a possibility that the pork rinds will float; in this case, you should occasionally press them down and flip them over.

Remove them right away using tongs or a slotted spoon, and place them back on the paper towels to drain.

To cook the remaining pork skins in the deep fryer, repeat the previous steps.

1 ounce of chopped onions

Approximately one-fourth of one large onion, diced

Olive Oil, 2 Tablespoons

1 tbsp Butter

1/8 tsp Salt

8 ounces of soured cream (1 Cup)

2 Cloves Garlic

4 tbsp Japanese Mayo

Collect all of the necessary elements.

Reduce one-fourth of a large onion to a very fine dice.

You should finish up with approximately 1 cup of rough chop onions.

Put some olive oil and chopped onions in a frying pan made of Teflon that’s medium in size.

Cook for about two to three minutes over medium heat, or until the aroma is released.

After thirty seconds have gone, add the butter, and then reduce the heat to medium-low.

Add some salt, then combine everything.

Saute the onions by cooking them for 15 minutes while stirring them occasionally.

In the meantime, mince the garlic very finely and chop the scallions, then set both of these preparations aside.

After 15 minutes have gone, put the caramelized onion and garlic in a medium-sized Teflon frying pan.

Then giving everything a good stir, continue to simmer for another 5 minutes.

After the first 5 minutes, you will see garlic onion carmelize. Then transfer mixture to a mixing bowl. Next, place in the freezer for another 5 minutes (to cool-down).

After waiting 5 minutes, put in the sour cream, Kewpie Mayo, scallions, and caramelized onion powder in a large ceramic bowl then stir until well combined.

Place in a bowl that you can use for serving.

Pork Rinds or veggie sticks of your choice can be served on the side if desired.

Is store bought salsa keto?

Yes it is! And it makes a wonderful dip for pork rinds. Just be sure to read the ingredients carefully to make sure it does not have too much sugar or sucrose in it. Sometimes the label can be misleading by using words like ‘organic’ and ‘low impact.’ But sugar is sugar. And you don’t need it in salsa.
