Let me tell you about Bak Kwa. It probably has the most fun to say name of any food I’ve ever had. Say it aloud with all capitals to see for yourself: BAK KWA. Yeah, it sounds just like it looks. I first encountered it made from horse meat smuggled into this country from Malaysia. I imagine the suitcase had a secret compartment, because the party host handed the jerky off to me in a manner akin to a back-alley drug deal. Once the unusual sweet and salty taste reached my lips, I immediately craved more. I had discovered meat candy!

My keto recipe for Bak Kwa is sugar free, gluten free, and low carb. This is a big difference from the original style of making it because sweet is the predominant flavor of this dish. I had to experiment with several combinations before being satisfied that I had achieved perfection. Since horse meat is hard to come by in the US (and disturbing to many people), I substitute pork for it.
