Paleo Brussels Sprout And Pork Belly Salad Recipe

Brussels sprouts are strange to me, and if they’re not cooked exactly right, they can get bitter. But, there’s a way to make them taste good! This salad would work as a main dish or side dish, and is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Paleo Brussels Sprout And Pork Belly Salad Recipe


1 lb pork belly

1 lb brussels sprouts

1 apple

3 large cloves of garlic

¼ cup chopped walnuts

2 tablespoons bacon fat, butter, ghee, or coconut oil

optional – 1 onion, 3 tablespoons crumbled goat or blue cheese, handful of dried cranberries, 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup, 1-2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, and/or ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese (Any of these would add some nice flavor to the dish)


Making It:

  1. Clean the brussels sprouts and chop them, along with the apple and garlic, into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Slice the pork belly into small squares or strips, then cook on the stove with 1 tablespoon of cooking fat.
  3. Once the pork is almost cooked through (should take a few minutes, but time will depend on how small your pieces are), add in the brussels sprouts, garlic, 1 tablespoon of cooking fat and any of the optional ingredients you want.
  4. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the brussels sprouts are cooked through.
  5. Add in the apple and walnut and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

  1. I love brussel sprouts and pork! This is fantastic!

  2. I love hearing something different to do with Brussel Sprouts. I think I’d change it up a bit but otherwise, sounds good.

  3. This is such a pretty salad!! I have never had brussel sprouts, but just bought a small frozen pack of them. I have no idea how to prepare them or what they should taste like.
