Keto Gyro from Fresh Pork Ham
Instructions
  1. First, put the piece of pork ham into the freezer for 1.5 to 2 hours. You want it to be frozen, but still cuttable. This makes the next step very easy

  2. When the meat is stiff, take it out of the freezer and cut it into thin slices

  3. After that, put the sliced meat into a big bowl & add all seasonings. Just spread them on top of the meat
  4. Now, melt the lard or coconut oil in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. If you are using heatable olive oil you don't need to melt it, of course. Then, pour the fat onto the meat and immediately start to mix everything thoroughly

  5. Afterwards, let the seasoned meat stand for about 10-15 minutes to give it a chance to soak in some seasoning. The longer you let it stand the better
  6. Next, preheat a pan (with your preferred fat for frying) to low-medium heat. Add the meat and let it fry for about 5-10 minutes with a lid on

  7. Finally, remove the lid and fry for another 5-10 minutes while stirring occasionally until you have some crispy bits and roasting flavors (browned meat). Take care that you don't fry it for too long as fresh pork ham is pretty tender and can dry out fast

Recipe Notes

To make it even better, you may prepare & marinade the meat in the morning or one day in advance and let it soak in the seasonings for a longer period of time. Simply let it stand for 1-2 hours or longer instead of 10-15 minutes. If you prepare it a day in advance, put the bowl into your fridge and cover it with cling film.

The seasonings are amazing for marinading  pork chops or spice up some ground beef, too.
In addition, you could use pork loin instead of ham or try it with other cuts.

Serve with any keto friendly side dish you like, e.g. salad, fried / baked vegetables, some eggs or simply a low carb condiment.

  6. While the liver is cooking, you may prepare some side dishes, like boiled eggs, vegetables or mushrooms
Recipe Notes

Never pour raw, leftover marinade over the cooked liver.

If you want to use the leftover marinade, make sure to boil it up to kill all harmful bacteria.

Don't marinate in aluminum containers or foil, because a chemical reaction could spoil the food.

The best way to marinate liver is using the zip lock bag in order for it to be evenly surrounded by the marinade.
