Default Low-Carb-Friendly chicken fried backstrap?

Haters are gonna hate! But my boyfriend and I are on a keto diet, low carb/high fat. No grains of any kind and little to no carbs. We are shedding pounds daily, it's awesome and we can still eat delicious food. As much meat, veggies (no potatoes), oil & fat as we want. Anyone else out there that has done this? I want to know what we can batter our backstrap with--we can still fry it with oil or butter, we just can't use flour! Thanks!!

Almond flour should work.

You can use pork rinds or check what the carbs are for almond flour. A lot of keto recipes use this to make breads.

I am doing the low carb thing currently. I wasn't a fan of the pork rinds even though I like to eat them on their own. I liked almond flour with grated parmesean mixed in. I have been thinking about using ground up cauliflower, but I haven't tried it yet.

We do this, mostly for fish but the problem is pork rinds are already fried so when you fry them again it can come out tasting burnt. Maybe just fry the meat and then roll it in the ground pork rinds.

My wife doesn't do low carb but I do so most often we are eating baked or grilled. She "crusts" lots of stuff in thin sliced almonds and that works for both of us.

She's also been buying Green Giant riced cauliflower and making pizza crusts with it. I love it.

Cool!! I thought about using Parmesan, too. Also curious about the cauliflower. Not sure if it would have a gritty texture when ground and fried?

I did the riced cauliflower and it wasn't for me. But I haven't tried already riced. I made my own in a food processor. I fried it over a light bit of olive oil but it never really dried out like I expected it to. I'll have to try the already riced stuff.

Now cauliflower "potato" salad... that stuff is awesome. I made a big ole tub of it and it tastes just like real potato salad. Even the kids and Momma were eating it. The kids didn't know it was cauliflower until I told them.

Agree with the almond flower posts. Also look for CarbQuick. I know it is sold at Amazon.

Good luck!

I love the keto diet. However I eat super clean while doing it.

Nothing else works near as good for me. Good luck. The results can be great!

I tried doing it with the pork rinds and didn't really care for it. I started grilling mine just like a steak and I actually greatly prefer it to fried now. For me the trick was to cook an entire 1/3 or 1/4 chunk of backstrap extremely quickly on high heat all at once and slice it up after cooking.

I use the egg and sifted Almond Flour for frying or just fry things naked.

I mix almond flour, cassava flour and sometimes add some coconut flour. I made some really good fried trout the other night.

Mix almond and coconut flour 50/50 and season it to your liking, it will work fine.

I fried up some backstrap last night with Almond Flour for the first time. Its not quite the same as regular flour, but it wasn't bad at all and will do it again. May have to try mixing in a bit of parmesan cheese next time.

I'd just work the carbs from deep frying into your daily macros. You're not going to kick yourself out of ketosis if you're intaking under 25 - 50 carbs.
