Welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com. Today, I'm going to show you how to make an
amazing entree with just two ingredients. Yes, you heard me correctly. And, in this video, I will
show you how to make my two ingredient pulled pork. By the way, I have to show you how
quick and easy it is to prep this meal. I will also show you some side dishes to make this
bbq flavored pulled pork into a complete meal, so please keep watching to the end. My two ingredient
pulled pork has a macronutrient ratio of 1.5 to 1, with 1.8 grams of total carbs, 0.6 grams of dietary
fiber, resulting in only 1.2 grams of net carbs per rather generous serving.
The first thing you have
to do is to pat dry the surface of your pork roast. This time, I'm using a pork loin roast,
the fattier end of a very large piece, and the leaner part I cut into pork chops. I
find that the pork loin is a very cost effective piece of meat and tastes really good. And,
I can get several meals, even for my family, out of one piece of meat,.
The second ingredient is
to use any of my dry seasonings. I'm using my North African dry rub today, but my fajita seasoning is
also a great alternative because it goes really well with the pork flavor. I'll provide links
to everything I mentioned, including the written recipe, in the description below. So, go check it
out down there. Although you can buy some of these seasonings in the store, I have always found that I
prefer making my seasonings at home because I can assure that my seasonings are sugar-free, gluten
free and I know what ingredients went into it. For the dry rubs, all you have to do is just
gather up the ingredients for the quantities indicated in the recipe, then stir together until
very well combined and the mixture is homogeneous. And then, just find a small glass container that's
airtight and store it in that glass container. Your homemade mixed seasonings will keep very well
in your cupboard. After you have your seasoning, all you have to do is to generously rub
the seasoning all over the entire roast. And, while you're at it, work it into
any crevices or extra folds in the meat.
The next thing you do is place the meat, fat side
down, into your slow cooker. I really prefer using the slow cooker, over oven method or instapot
method, because I find that the meat is the most flavorful and moist with the slow cooker method.
After placing your meat into the slow cooker, cover with the lid and set your timer either on low for
about eight hours or, alternatively, you can set it to high for about four or five hours. The timing
will depend on how thick your piece of meat is. This time, my roast took exactly four hours. You
will know that your pork roast is done when the meat is fork tender and you can easily pull
the meat apart into strips, just using a fork. Now, it's time to transfer the roast onto
the cutting board and, as I said, using two forks pull apart in opposite directions,
and just separate into thick strands. I would highly recommend you do not remove the fat,
because the fat adds a lot of flavor and moistness to your pulled pork. And, after all, we are keto,
so we want good, healthy fats.
And, the very last step that you have to do is just return
all of your frayed meat back into your slow cooker, where you've left all the juices.
And then, just toss the meat in the juices. And, that's all there is to making
a two ingredient pulled pork. As I promised, here are a few suggestions on how
to serve the pulled pork. One of the ways that we incorporate the pulled pork into a meal is to make
it into a taco. And, you can use your favorite taco seasonings. To make the tortillas, I usually use my
pita, two-way recipe. Just roll it out a bit thinner. Or, you can serve this barbecue pulled pork
as a main entree, with a side salad such as my red cabbage salad with lime vinaigrette.
We also like to serve with a side vegetable, such as roasted broccoli with parmesan and lemon,
because the broccoli is a really good complement to the pulled pork.
Or, as I'm serving it today,
on a plate with my parmesan lemon green beans, which I made today without the olives, and with
some simple pan-fried cauliflower rice, a few wedges of cucumber and some red pepper. This pulled
pork can also be made into a sandwich by simply putting it into either my easy keto buns and rolls,
or my keto hamburger buns, a little bit of mayo and lettuce, or whatever else you would like in your
sandwich. The sandwich is also really good because you can take it to work or school.
I hope that
these suggestions of how to turn my two ingredient pulled pork into full meals has been useful
and helpful to you. Oh, before I forget, I would suggest that you separate any of the leftovers
into single serving portions, whether that's a single serving for one, or for your entire family
as a single serving. And then, place in a freezer tight container or freezer safe zippy bag, and
this makes a good prep ahead meal for next time. Thank you very much for taking the time to watch
my video. I would really appreciate it if you would leave me a comment, like this video and, if you
have any suggestions for future quick or easy meals, also leave those in the comment.

next video. Until then, have a wonderful day! Cheers!.
