Petits Pois a la Français

Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 12 oz. chopped, cooked pork belly
    • Unsalted pork belly would be better, but our grocery store doesn't stock it
    • You could use thick-cut bacon cut into pieces if you can't find pork belly
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 big handfuls of mustard greens, torn into large pieces
  • 4 cups peas (defrosted and drained, if using frozen peas)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (~2 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
    • Omit if you used salted pork belly
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


  1. Add the olive oil and butter to a pan, and warm until the butter is melted.  Add the chopped bacon, green onions, and mustard greens.  Cover and cook until the greens are wilted.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients.  Cook until the peas are warmed through and everything is mixed together.
  3. Serve hot.
