Pork Bites are the ultimate pork dish I guarantee you will love. Going to a get-together or party and trying to figure out what to bring? The age-old dilemma everyone faces. I have an easy, delicious, and healthy snack that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! It is especially a problem if you are currently following a specific diet. Whether it be clean eating, Whole30, Paleo, Keto or just looking for something healthy. Pork Bites are made with clean ingredients, easy to make, and delicious!
How to make Pork Bites:
Start by mixing the marinade ingredients in a mason jar, measuring cup, or whatever you prefer. Cut the pork into 1-inch squares. (Anything bigger won't work as they won't be bite-size) Put the pork squares and marinade into a sealable container and place it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days. I usually do it for about a day. When you are ready to cook the Pork Bite, take them out of the fridge. Spread them out on a broil pan or baking sheet with a rack. You will want to use a rack that allows air to get underneath while they cook. Cook for about 10 minutes on each side till fully cooked (145° f). Remove from oven and serve hot or serve cold. Either way, they are delicious. Note: If substituting Soy Sauce for Coconut Amino, omit 1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt.
These little bites of deliciousness pair perfectly with my Paleo Mustard Sauce! You could also dip them in Coconut Amino or any dip you prefer. No matter what you dip them in, if anything, you will love them. Did I mention that they are not only a great appetizer but go perfect on any salad? They are perfect for meal prep at the beginning of the week to use all week long for different lunches and dinners. However you eat them, you will ENJOY them!Print

Just made this and it turned out excellent. I used a grill with non direct heat at about 400. Turned them once after 10 min and cooked for an additional 10. Everyone LOVED them!
I am so glad you liked them!!
Loved this! The whole family agreed they wanted these again. The pork was tender and full of flavor. The only thing we would change, would be to cut down on the salt. Since I did not have coconut amino available, I used low sodium soy sauce and we loved the pork.
Hi Meg, I was wondering do you use a pork roast or loin? I can’t wait to try this! It looks great!
I usually use pork chops! I have used tenderloin to and it works well but have not tried it with a roast. I hope you enjoy them!!
Awesome! I plan to try this next week. Thank you!
I hope you enjoy them, Let me know how they turned out!
Can we use on the grill instead of oven?
Yes!! I cook them on the grill all the time and love it!
Let me know how they turn out!
They turned out amazing! We put some of the sauce on some broccoli and put it together over white rice. Perfect dinner
Can you please share what that dipping sauce is that you used?
I used my Paleo Mustard Dipping Sauce, here is the link https://www.atwistedplate.com/paleo-mustard-sauce/
l hope you enjoy it!!!
Mine didn’t turn out dark as your picture, I had to put them under the broiler. But they’re very tasty!
I made these some time ago for a ladies Mahjong get-together, and had rave reviews. They were quite tasty, and such an easy recipe.
Can the marinade be used for a dipping sauce?
I need a few options for dipping. I’ll be feeding 14 people.
Hi! I haven’t tried the marinade as a sauce use the paleo mustard sauce is delicious with the Pork Bites
Hi! I'm wondering if there's any possible sub for the soy sauce/coconut aminos?
Looking for party food ideas and I've got one person with a coconut allergy, and another with a wheat allergy! However, I think I'm still going to try this for dinner one night even if I can't use the recipe for the party. Looks delicious!
Hi! You can use gluten free soy sauce or tamari sauce, just omit the salt!
