Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 kg Pork Belly


  • Trim the fat layer from the pork belly. It will come off really easy.
  • Dice the pork belly fat into small cubes and place it into your air fryer baking pan.
  • Cook the pork belly in the air fryer for 10 minutes at 200c/400f.
  • Dry the cooked pork fat with kitchen towel and pat them dry.
  • Place the pork fat into the fridge for 10 minutes so that they can thoroughly cool down.
  • Place the pork fat into the blender and blend until it resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  • You now have Keto Pork Rinds!


This Keto Pork Rinds recipe is enough for one person for breading a meal. To increase portion size, simply buy more pork belly. The pork belly leftovers are perfect for an alternative to pork chops for dinner and to be served with your favourite vegetables.
Pork belly works BEST and is easiest to cook pork rinds with. But you can also use the fat from any cut of pork. After you have removed the pork fat from the bottom of the air fryer baking pan you will have a LOT of fat juices at the bottom. Keep this as you can use it to brush onto pork or chicken as a sticky layer before the Keto Pork Rinds for successful breading.
If you don’t want to make your own homemade pork rinds, then I would recommend US Wellness Meats and you can buy containers of them instead. It is essential to use an air fryer baking pan. Otherwise you will have a smoke problem with the air fryer and as well as this the fat won’t be collected and it will take you forever to clean out your air fryer.
