  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  10. Spoon the wonderful meat over a bed of cheese grits.
  11. Top with a sprinkle of fresh lime zest (about 1 teaspoon for each bowl.)
  12. Enjoy!

Notes

Try serving this pork over biscuits or chunks of cornbread. It is amazing in a panini. It may also be good served with rice and wrapped in a tortilla. You can use your imagination!

FOR PALEO - serve this on a bed of riced cauliflower or in a paleo friendly wrap, such as Siete brand. (I find them at my local Whole Foods.)
