With my 1/2 pig, it seems to me I'd get 10-12 packs of 1 lb ground pork....I could be wrong. With 1/2 beef, I'd get around 50 packs of ground beef--averaging 1 lb to 1-1/4 lb. I always ordered stew meat however.

Asian dumplings or wontons, ground pork cabbage, garlic, ginger, scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, wonton wrappers, steam and then fry if you want to.

Do you like Mexican food? I'll give you my recipe for fresh Mexican chorizo. I use turkey, but the go-to meat is pork.


CHORIZO


2 pounds ground pork
4 cloves mashed garlic (I usually use a garlic press)
6 Tbs chili powder
2 Tbs oregano
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs water
2 Tbs vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
tsp fresh ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, divide into quarters, roll each quarter into a log, and tightly wrap each log with plastic wrap, twisting the ends to secure. If you like it mild, use Ancho chili powder, if you like it spicy, use New Mexico chili powder.

You might also try a Google search for Pilipino cuisine. When Pilipinos get their hands on a pig, they cook everything but the oink!

We always got a side of beef when I was growing up and Mom used to get 50/50 ground and stew meat. We only once got a 1/2 pig and I don't remember her using much ground pork - she always used something and ground it herself for her tourtieres.
