Fork-Tender Dill Pickle Pork Chops with Bacon & Onion Low Carb Recipe

As a family, we’ve decided we’re going to start eating a lower carb diet. Since that’s the case, you’ll be seeing more and more recipe on this site that are of the low carb/keto variety. That said, since I’ve always loved sharing a wide array of delicious recipes with you here, from appetizers to desserts, I do not plan on entirely refocusing my blog in that way.

However, what you CAN expect is a generous sprinkling of lower carb and keto inspired recipes in between all the other cooking and baking recipes you’ve come to love and expect from Kudos Kitchen. Something for everyone is my motto, along with a pinch or two of everything in moderation. 🙂

However, if you’re not prepared to wait until summer to make this delicious Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange, I completely understand! If I was you, I’d think up a reason to have friends and family over as soon as possible (maybe for an impromptu game night), just so you can make and serve these amazing sandwiches! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!!

Tasty Chinese Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl Kudos Kitchen Style

This recipe for a Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl is my take on a deconstructed egg roll. In place of the crispily fried eggroll wrapper, I’ve used chow mein noodles for crunch as a top garnish along with scallions, and chopped peanuts (which are completely optional). The other ingredients I’ve used are basic Chinese staple pantry ingredients. While there may be quite a few ingredients, they’re invaluable to have in your cupboards for cooking Asian cuisine throughout the year. Invest in them once and you’ll be all set for whenever you have a craving for Chinese food, but don’t want to do take-out.

Smoky Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast

The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.

Deliciously Easy Italian Sausage Caprese Sandwich

Since we live in the Midwest, my husband and I are all about sausages. He’s partial to Italian sausage, and I’m partial to bratwurst. I can easily eat a sausage without a bun to keep the carb level low, but he’s all about a bread and meat combo.

Sweetly Fragrant Garlic Lovers Pork Chops

This recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops was completely inspired by a trip I’d taken to our local warehouse superstore (aka Costco). During that trip, and on a whim that I picked up one of those mega-sized bags of whole, peeled garlic cloves and tossed it into my cart. While I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with so many peeled garlic cloves (there must have been at least 500 or more cloves of garlic in that bag), my mind was excitedly thinking of all the delicious possibilities!
