Friday Food Shot 105

Two weeks ago I started my salt pork experiment. Here is the result, after 14 days of curing. I learned the following regarding its use: (1) to fry and eat it like bacon, boil it for 15 minutes, let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing thinly and pan frying; (2) to use it as recado for sauteed dishes and soups, boil it for 5 minutes, let it rest for another 5 minutes before slicing then render the fat in a hot pan and use it for stir-frying. It’s very tasty!

My mother had to try this soon after seeing the TV ad. I did try it with her. It is so rich and delicious and probably best eaten once a month only. That is, if you’re mindful of what you’re eating.
