Luckily for me this week's recipe is easy and delicious. Dorie suggests using pork butt and I was tempted to use a leaner cut like a pork loin but I had just heard Dr. Zorba on NPR talking about eating fat and how the French eat foods higher in fat than we Americans do. He said the French eat smaller amounts of good food while Americans eat
large amounts of bad food. My plan was to use the fatter cut of pork and eat less. Good plan but I don't know that I ate less. What can I do? I am American! Just have to work out a little more I guess.
