Being a fan of nose to tail dining, once in a while this fattier offering is par for the Paleo course. Here's a recipe a blog reader in Toulouse, France shared with me. Remember to source pastured pork!
  • 2 pounds Pork belly, pastured-organic; thinnest possible slices
  • Marinade:
  • 1 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 4 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle, dried, ground
  1. Mix the marinade thoroughly with a hand blender in a large bowl
  2. Marinate in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours
  3. Saute gently in a cast-iron skillet
  4. Serve with your favorite green veggies
