Prep Time:

Serves:

4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (105 g) coconut oil
  • 1 1/4 lbs (570 g) pork belly, cut into 1 by 1/2 inch (2.5 by 1.25 cm) pieces
  • 1 teaspoon grey sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon five spice

Sticky sauce, optional

Instructions

  1. Place coconut oil in a large pan set to medium-high.
  2. Toss the pork belly pieces in salt and five spice.
  3. Once the coconut oil melts completely, add the pork belly pieces.
  4. Cover with a splashguard and cook for 20 minutes, rotating halfway through.
  5. Once complete, strain and reserve the fat for another day.
  6. Meanwhile, combine all of the sticky sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Set on medium-low.
  7. Once boiling, keep going for 10 minutes. Whisking every 2 minutes.
  8. Transfer the sauce to a small serving bowl and serve alongside the keto popcorn.

Notes

When looking for pork belly, it’s best to choose a cut that doesn’t include the skin. You can ask your butcher for what’s what. If you end up getting a cut with the skin, you can cut it off like you would chicken skin. It’s a bit harder to separate but worth it. I don’t enjoy keto popcorn with the skin on, I feel like it downgrades the flavor and makes it challenging to eat.
