EXTRA LEAN PASTURED HERITAGE PORK PASTA SAUCE 

 
[Pastured Heritage Breed pork is in a whole different category: lean & healthy.] 
  
Before starting: Pour enough boiling hot water over 1/4 lb. of freeze-dried organic mushrooms [broken in 
pieces] to cover them, and let soak.  
 
In a stockpot or dutch oven with 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil, brown approx. 1 lb. extra lean ground pork on 
medium-high heat. Remove from pan and drain. Add to pan 1 lg. thinly sliced onion & 6 minced garlic cloves 
or garlic powder to taste [if needed, add a bit more oil]. Stir until onions get soft & garlic is a light golden 
brown. Add the meat & 1 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. marjoram, 1 bay leaf [optional], 1 TBSP fresh minced basil [or 1 
tsp. dried basil] & 1/2 tsp. cardamom powder.   
 
Stir in one 14.5 oz. can organic diced tomatoes & one 6 oz. can organic tomato paste, as well as 1 tsp. 
organic Sucanat [dried sugar cane juice]. Add the reconstituted mushrooms.  
 
Cover pot and let it simmer for an hour; do not allow to boil. Add 1 cup wine of your choice [or organic 
chicken broth] and 1 TBSP organic balsamic vinegar about 40 minutes into the cooking (about 20 minutes 
before serving).
