I got the inspiration for this recipe from my days working in a Portuguese restaurant. The original dish also had flour and mussels in it. Unfortunately mussels are quite high in carbs and so is the flour. I just omitted them all together and added some vegetables instead. This low carb cumin pork has quite a strong taste but I personally like it a lot. If you like cumin you’ll like this dish too.
