Pork Belly with Green Apples

Pork Belly with Green Apples
Browned pork with green apple (granny smith) and sweet red onions. A delicious dish Low Carb (Low Carbohydrate) with very intense aromas of sage. Apples except the sour flavor and taste, keep the slices of the pancetta juicy but also crisp. Served and eaten garnished with caramelized onions and thinly sliced green apples. Wonderful flavors!
