It is very similar to beef heart, and I agree with suggestions. To tenderize, marinate. Ginger is something that will soften the meat. I hesitate to recommend poaching or stewing because heart has no fat and does not tenderize like fatty, tough... (more)

They are not harder to digest. That is myth. Meat digests in your small intestine, making it easier to digest than many other foods. Eat them as often as you'd like (assuming you're hungry and only eating to satiety). I can't imagine it will... (more)

Worrying about a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food is worse for your health than consuming a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food. So my answer is that it's fine but I suppose it really depends on your goals.

Grass fed pork will have a slightly better ratio. To get your ratio high consider wild salmon twice a week and grass feed beef or bison the other days. And pastured eggs. Or some variation of that.

Crock pot. Slab of pork belly that fits in the bottom. Season with whatever you want, but salt and a tiny bit of honey seems to be magic. On low for 6-8 hours. Slice, pan sear in the fat that accumulates in the bottom of the crock pot. So delicious! (more)

Pigs don't graze in pastures, they forage. They eat all sorts of things other than grass, they are pretty happy on a grain-supplemented diet (then again, so are cows). That's why their meat is less rich in omega-3s. Pork is definitely paleo,... (more)
