FAQ: “What do you do with your leftover fry oil?”

Well let me answer that question – something we get almost 20 times daily any time we feature a video of us frying food on our Instagram account.

Short answer: we save it and continue using it until it is too dark or gets cloudy.

Here’s the scoop…

Our families have always deep fried foods since before we can even remember. Back in the day, there would be a designated “frying pot” where the oil would sit until someone needed to fry something – nowadays, in our own homes, here is what we do:

  1. Let the oil cool completely.
  2. Place a mesh strainer at the mouth of a large jar and pour the oil in there. You want the big bits to get caught so it doesn’t end up floating around in the jar. The reason you want to strain the oil is so when you reuse the oil, it doesn’t make the oil darker than it needs to be. It also helps keep the oil tasting fresher (in our opinion).
  3. Close the jar and store at room temperature.
  4. We reuse the oil until it becomes a brown color but that is completely up to you. The darker the oil, the darker your food will look after you fry it, so just adjust the amount of times you reuse based on the color and preference you have.

Now some additional questions we know y’all are going to have:

  1. What kind of oil do you use? We like to use avocado oil because it is clean and has a high smoke point. Use what oil you can afford and are comfortable cooking with. Canola oil, peanut oil, and soybean oil are all oils we have fried with – they are just very processed.
  2. How many times do you re-use oil? Depending on what we fry, it’s 5-6 times. If we fry fish, the oil is dunzo because the smell and taste will not go away.
  3. What deep fryer do you recommend?

Keto Kalbi Beef

@theketodashians

♬ Boy With Luv – BTS

KBBQ fan? Us too. This is one of our favorite ways to prep short ribs and they are the perfect pair with some cucumber salad and kimchi. Wrap lettuce around them or serve them on top of cauli rice or keto noodle bowls and you’re set! The easiest way to eat this is to cook the short ribs and then cut them into bite sized pieces when you’re ready to eat.

77 Ways to Pocket-fy Your Meals

Okay, here’s the dealio…we are obsessed with pockets. What is a pocket? It is a meal stuffed into a triangular pocket of deliciousness using flatbread strips and your filling of choice. We exclusively use our holy grail flatbread, Cutdacarb, because it’s easy to work with, takes on whatever flavor you season it with, and it fries up fast as hell. We rely on pocket-fying foods because it is a is a low carb hack to control your carb intake but also still get the satisfaction of eating your favorite foods.

The idea for pocket-fying things is based on our love of Hot Pockets (cue theme song) and the technique of folding a paper football or Greek Spanikopita (shout out to my grade school friend’s Yia Yia for showing us how to do this when we were 8 years old). The technique to fold is the same for all of these. See diagram below:

The pocket-fy process involves picking your filling of choice, adding it at the bottom of the flatbread strip, and using the folding technique shown above.

We deep fry 90% of our pockets in avocado oil. The rest are either pan fried in butter or baked in our toaster oven after being sprayed with avocado oil. Our Keto baes have used their air fryers as well.

Here is a bomb ass list of things you can pocket-fy to give you some meal inspo (we added links to the recipes we’ve posted and also suggestions for ones that may not be as obvious):
