Pork carnitas is the perfect base for a delicious keto meal.

Whether you want to make a keto carnitas bowl, have keto-friendly taco night, or feed a crowd, this pulled pork recipe will provide you with the perfect balance of fat, flavor, and spice you expect from a Mexican-inspired dish.

Just make sure to skip the rice, tortillas, beans, and any other starchy additives that typically accompany carnitas. You won’t miss them anyway!

Carnitas is a Mexican slow-cooked pulled pork dish that is typically served with rice, beans, and tortillas. The pulled pork on its own is very low in carbs and keto-friendly, but its accompaniments are often filled with net carbs.

Though carnitas pork is tasty enough on its own, we wanted to make every aspect of the dish 100% keto. This way you can have carnitas tacos or a Chipotle-inspired carnitas bowl without any compromises.
