I kind of loved this Slow Cider Braised Keto Pork Belly, there was very little to photograph so I need your help.

This is not like your typical pulled pork, or crispy pork belly.  It is so soft you can cut it with a spoon, and enjoy the layers of both meat and fat in one super soft bite.

It is absolutely delicious!

So if you willing to give this one a test and show us your photos I am looking for a few to add to this post and my social media.

This amazing image has been captured by Liza Marsh.  Thanks Liza, it looks delicious!

Made with pretty easy to source ingredients.  I have added a couple of links for the great products I use, otherwise feel free to source your own choices locally.

Let me know how you go and if you love it as much as me.  I will make it again, as this recipe will be featured an upcoming book.

Looking forward to seeing your bellies lol.

  1. Hi Megan,
    Where do you get the coconut aminos or gluten free tamari, also where can I buy the cider? I’m making a list of all the new items I have to buy so when I’m well enough to go shopping I can go mad get them all & start cooking.
    All the recipes look sooo good but I just have no appetite or interest in food or the energy to cook at the moment.
    As pulled pork is a favourite in this house I will definitely be giving it a go.

    1. The cider I purchased from Dan Murphy’s. As for coconut aminos and gltuen free tamari, I can purchase locally at Organic feast, but you will find gluten free tamari in the Asian section of most woolies, and coconut aminos are available at most health food stores, and good IGAs.

  2. Hi!
    Has anyone tried this in a. Pressure cooker by any chance?
