Mouthwatering Low Carb Pork Recipes
Pork is very easy to overcook, so unless you’re a fan of leathery pork (eww), here are few tips for cooking pork (especially pork chops) for tender, juicy meat every time.
- Sear chops before transferring them to the oven.
- Brine at least 30 minutes before cooking, if time allows.
- Allow time for the pork to sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cooking. Going straight from the fridge to the pan often results in unevenly cooked meat.
- Give the meat a few minutes to rest before serving. This allows the fibers to relax, resulting in a tender, juicier bite.
But now let’s get the the low carb pork recipes, shall we?
