Roasted Pork Belly with Creamed Pointed (Chinese) Cabbage ... makes a low carb rustic feast

Not a pork chop, not bacon, something in-between. Pork belly anchors this rustic feast. It's a great choice for feeding a crowd - it's affordable, easy, and just different enough to keep it interesting...

Serves Six
8g carbs per serving
2½ lbs / 1.1kg pork belly
2 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon cloves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow onion
1 apple (optional) 

Creamed cabbage
2 lbs / 900g pointed (Chinese) cabbages
2 oz. / 50g butter
1 cup / 225ml heavy (double) whipping cream
2 tablespoons cream cheese
salt and pepper

Pointed Cabbage is also known as Chinese Cabbage ...
If you don’t have pointed cabbage, regular cabbage is fine! You can prepare the cabbage ahead of time and just warm and serve when the meat is done. It’s a perfect way to enjoy your guests instead of focusing on the meal.

The apple does have some sugar in it, and onions contain some carbs. To make this dish more strictly keto, just leave the apples and/or onions in the pan after roasting the pork.
