AIP Pork Belly & Spiced “Rice” One Pot Recipe

Before I get into today’s recipe, I want to share something really exciting with you.  Sarah Ballantyne, The Paleo Mom, has created a pilot episode of Paleo Bites, an all paleo TV show.  Today, she is sending that pilot episode to different networks, for their approval.  Paleo Bites would be an amazing benefit to all of us in the paleo community, including those of us on the AIP.  I urge all of you to go here, and help to get Paleo Bites on air. Thanks.

    1. Hi Marcia, I usually bake 2 pounds pork belly in a 425 degree oven, on an elevated rack for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. I like it a little crispy. If you don’t want it crispy, you can cook it at 375 degrees for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
