This past weekend I went to the farmers market and bought a beautiful piece of pastured pork belly. You can see how I cooked it here. I decided to make a paleo pork belly hash, because hash anything is amazing. And adding pork belly basically blew my mind. I love pork belly.

I know pork belly has a bad reputation, as does bacon. But bacon actually isn’t the devil’s food you’ve been led to believe it is. It’s actually high in monounsaturated fat, the same fat found in olive oil. The same fat that people in the Mediterranean eat and live healthier, longer lives. Read my article on why bacon is a health food and be sure to thank me later!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium potato peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp unflavored coconut oil found here
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup pork belly diced into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 green pepper diced
  • sea salt

Instructions

  • Soak the potatoes in 1 tsp sea salt and water for about 10-15 minutes. This helps remove the starch so they crisp up.
  • Saute the potatoes in one tbsp of the coconut oil.
  • Once the edges are crispy, add the pork belly, onion and green pepper.
  • Cook until soft.

Notes

Optional: add jalapeños and top with a fried egg. I did. It was great.

  1. I’ve never eaten pork belly and the idea of it scares me. What does it taste like (if you can compare it to anything)?
