Pork Shank with Mustard Keto Gravy

Pork Shank with Keto Mustard Gravy

This recipe uses a beautiful, fresh (not cured) shank which you can get from your local butcher. (Be sure to ask him to score the fat for you.) I slow-cooked it in a casserole (covered with a well-fitting lid) in the oven, along with onions, garlic and stock. Afterwards, I made a gravy from the cooked down onions and juices, and cranked the heat up in the oven to puff that skin up for that all-glorious crackling. A 1kg /2.2lb / 35oz shank will sufficiently feed 4 people and should be enjoyed with my Keto Creamy Cauliflower Mash, so that the accompanying mustard gravy – which really makes the dish sing – can be mopped up. Be sure to check out the Side Dishes option on the site and choose your favourite one to enjoy alongside it. The 11g carbs per serving includes only the pork and gravy on this recipe, so while this may seem quite hefty to you, why not save this Sunday roast to break your fast if you are intermittent fasting (IF).

Keto Breakfast Muffins

Keto Breakfast Muffins

These are quite similar to my Quick Keto Chia Bread recipe I posted last week, except I made these in ramekins which create perfect little muffin shapes (which I then sliced in half). This recipe will make 2 muffins and yield 4 slices, as pictured. The macros have been calculated per 1 serving (1 muffin cut into 2 slices). They can also be toasted by simply frying in a little olive oil. Top with a poached egg or butter and good-quality prosciutto, like I did on my Low-carb Prosciutto Muffins. Enjoy!

Roasted Tomato Sauce

This is a great homemade sauce to use as a pizza base or – us it to smother your meatballs over courgetti. The recipe yields a 500g / 17.6oz batch which will sufficiently feed 4 people as a ‘pasta’ sauce. The macros have been calculated that one person’s serving will be approximately 125g / 4.4oz. If you don’t need to use it all, you can freeze the remaining in handy batches. Don’t forget to stir in some dried oregano for an authentic Italian flavour.
