I used it to make a kind of carbonara sauce. I can't find the recipe I used, but it involved first dicing then cooking the salt pork, then adding a can of diced tomatoes to the pork and fat. There were probably some spices or garlic, maybe some vegetables. I can't remember. I forget what I served it over, probably pasta for him and sweet potatoes for me. My fat-phobic man loved it. I didn't tell him what was in it.
