Category: Main Dish / Pork Makes: 6 servings pork and 3 cups creamy grits
Serve pork belly portions over a small mound of grits and drizzle with honey. If desired, drizzle with 1 to 2 tablespoons hot strained braising liquid and garnish with snipped thyme.
Creamy Grits: Bring heavy cream and water to a boil in a large, heavy saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Slowly stir in grits. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes until fully cooked. Stir in salt and pepper.
Quick Tips: For a cook who does not want to make their own clarified butter, use grapeseed oil because it too has a high smoke point and bland in flavor.
