✨ Recipe Ingredients

To make the carnivore pork rinds you will need:

  • 1 pound Pork Skin
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Lard for Frying

👨‍🍳 How To Make

Follow these steps:

Step 1

Use a sharp knife to cut the pork skin strips into bite-sized pieces, about 1×1 inch.

Step 2

Fill a large pot halfway with water and add the pork skin pieces and salt. Bring to a boil, and let it cook for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Remove the pot from the heat and pour the water off (use a colander to strain).

Step 4

Let the pork skin pieces cool, and then slice the fat off the skin of each piece. Place them on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 5

Bake at 200°F for 3.5 hours. Then, remove from the oven. Fill a large saucepan with 1 inch of lard, wait for it to heat, and fry the pork skins. They will start to pop like popcorn after a few seconds. Let them cook for 1-2 minutes, and then remove them carefully.

💡Tips

1. Remove Excess Fat

After boiling the pork skin, it’s important to remove any excess fat from each piece before proceeding with the recipe. This step helps to ensure that your pork rinds will be crispy and not greasy.

Allow the boiled pork skin to cool slightly, then use a sharp knife to carefully slice off any visible fat from each piece.

2. Cut the Pork Skin Evenly

To achieve evenly cooked pork rinds, it’s important to cut the pork skin into uniform pieces. Use a sharp knife to carefully slice the skin into 1×1 inch squares, taking care to maintain a consistent size and shape. If the pieces are too large, they may not cook through properly, resulting in tough or chewy rinds.
