Pork with Almond Sauce (cabezada Con Salsa de Almendras)


This traditional Spanish recipe originally calls for an entire loaf of French baguette and a full two cups of wine. Not exactly Paleo friendly. I omitted the bread and cut the wine in half (hey, we all have to cheat sometimes). This recipe is definitely a keeper.

What you will need

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon of olive oil

5 cloves of garlic, minced

2 bay leaves

1 yellow onion, diced

1 large tomato

1/3 pound pound blanched whole almonds


water, if needed

2 pounds pork shoulder or steak, cut into cubes

1 cup cup white wine

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

2 teaspoons paprika

salt and pepper to taste
