The best part about these Keto Steak Tacos on Pork Rind Tortillas is they are extremely low carb. With so few ingredients, they are sure to become a fast favorite!
Confession time. I've never been very good at cooking steak and I've hardly spent any time eating it.
But when I got a huge, delicious package of meat in the mail from Butcher Box (affiliate), AND a new pan to try out in the kitchen... I knew it was time for that to change.
I love a good tortilla, and I know you do too. They're perfect for making wraps, nachos, and my favorite...tacos.
Not to discredit my other favorite...cheese shell tacos, but the recipe I'm sharing with you today is pretty awesome.
There's a lot of debate over whether low carb tortillas are "truly" Keto. I'm not going to get into that today...but I will squash the debate with an alternative you can make right now with three Keto staples.
Pork Rind Tortillas
I never realized how versatile Pork Rinds can be. They are beyond useful, zero carb, and in this recipe you won't even be able to tell you're eating them.
With a special blend of unflavored pork rinds, egg, cream cheese, and mozzarella I created an incredibly yummy, guilt free dinner that filled everyone up, and made them crave more.
Keto. Steak. Tacos.

I bet these would make great Tortilla chips or crackers too! Looking forward to trying them and based on the ingredients list and knowing how they taste, I'm going to give this 5 stars now. I don't really subscribe to arbitrary internet "rules" made up by nobody's.

Did you cook these in a dry pan or in a little oil? I cooked in dry pan but they look nothing like yours. Yours look crispy but mine were on the softer side. They were delicious by the way.

These are delicious. Great with steak! I did have to add about 1/4 cup almond flour because I was out of pork rinds. I had just one cup of pork rinds but needed a bit more dry ingredient to make it fryable in the pan. Made 4 tortillas and will definitely keep this recipe to make again due to the amazing flavour. Thanks!

What should I subtitute the cheese with? I don't eat cheese.

You’ll need some type of binder to hold it all together. Maybe a xanthan gum paste with egg of some sort? Good luck!

Made these with hot and spicy rinds. Soo good. Took a little patience to make them, but well worth it !
