Keto Scotch Eggs
Instructions
  1. First, poke 5 of the eggs and cook them in an egg cooker for about 2 minutes. Of course, you can do that in a pot with boiling water, too. Take the eggs right out of the fridge, then put them into the egg cooker or boiling water. You only want the very outer egg white layer to become solid

  2. Then, chill the eggs under running cold water or -even better- put them in a bowl with water & ice. Do that for 1-2 minutes to make sure the eggs are completely cooled down
  3. Now, put the eggs into your freezer for 2-3 hours until they are completely frozen

  4. When the eggs are frozen, prepare the ground beef mixture. For that, put the ground beef into a bowl, add 1 egg & all seasonings. Next, mix it thoroughly with your hands or a hand mixer with dough hooks

  5. Now, take the eggs out of the freezer and carefully peel them

  6. Afterwards, take about 1/5 of the ground beef mixture, put it onto a cutting board and press it flat to a burger patty shape. If it sticks to the cutting board use a spatula to slide between the board & patty and detach it

  7. Next, place 1 egg centered onto the patty, then wrap it by pulling the beef mixture up from the sides. Make sure that you don't leave any big gaps

  8. Repeat these steps for each egg. Do them fast as the eggs are thawing already, but still be careful so you won't break them
  9. Now, preheat a pan with your preferred fat for frying to low-medium heat. Use a huge amount of fat (e.g. lard, beef towel, coconut oil) to prevent sticking - it's even better to fill up a pot with fat or simply use a deep fryer

  10. Finally, fry the balls evenly for 15-20 minutes until the ground beef is brown and slightly crispy. If you use the deep fry method at medium-high heat it only takes about 5 minutes

Recipe Notes

The additional egg in the ground beef mixture helps to hold everything together. I didn't do this here, but highly recommend it as the result will be better that way.

Also, deep frying is the best method to cook these, because they get fried more evenly and are done faster.

Serve with any side dish you like - e.g. oven baked broccoli, fried string beans or cauliflower mash. I simply added some low carb ketchup & mayo.

Tip: If you want to go full pro add a layer of "breading" around the ground beef. You could use crunched pork rinds / crispy bacon bits for that.

Tip: If you make sure to cool the eggs down completely it is very easy to remove the yolks. Simply turn one egg half after another with the yolk side down, squeeze gently and the yolk should pop right out.

Pan Fried Pulled Pork Shoulder with Eggs
Instructions
Pork Shoulder
  1. First, put the coconut oil into a pan on medium-high heat and when it is hot add the pork shoulder
  2. Season the meat with salt, pepper, cumin and coriander on the upwards facing side while searing it on the other for 3-5 minutes. Then, flip it and add the seasonings again while searing the other side, also for about 3-5 minutes until it gets a medium brown color
  3. Now, set your plate to low heat, add the butter to the pan and put a lid on top

  4. Finally, let the pork shoulder fry for about 60 minutes with the lid on and flip it about each 15 minutes. It is perfect, when the meat falls from the bone and you can easily pull the meat fibers apart with a fork
Eggs
  1. While the pork shoulder is slowly frying and has about 10 minutes left of cooking time, start to prepare the eggs. Simply put them into a pot with boiling water and cook them for about 5 minutes, alternatively use your egg cooker
  2. When they are done, peel the eggs, place them on a plate, cut them in half and sprinkle some salt & pepper on top
Recipe Notes

Pro Tip: For some awesome vegetables on the side, cook them in a pot or the microwave until they are nearly done. Put the finished meat on a plate and cover it with aluminium foil to keep it warm. Then, shortly fry the vegetables on medium-high heat in the remaining butter and pork grease in the pan.
