Why's pork your favourite?

Hey


Pig is the best meat. No question. Duck is a close second, beef is nice, lamb is lovely but pork will always win. What's your favourite thing to do with pork??? Braised shoulder? Home smoked bacon? Roasted belly? Just straight crackling??? Why pig?????

:)

Pork is my choice of meat for low and slow true BBQ. Wether it is Boston Butt, whole shoulder, ribs or whole hog. A full packer brisket for BBQ beef, whole turkey next and chicken last.

Some members would not agree with that statement lol!

I do though :)
I love pork! My favourite would have to be suckling pig cooked on a spit braai then Eisbein with crispy crackling, then Pork Belly slow roasted with tender juicy meat and crispy crackling, then good pork bangers with lots of hot German Mustard and homemade sauerkraut, then crispy smoked streaky bacon with soft poached eggs and potato hash browns, then Cabanossi grilled on the fire served with homemade sweet mustard sauce and and ..............................................

Second would be duck
Third would be lamb
Fourth would be Kudu
Fifth would be beef and chicken is not for me!

Pork is generally tender and moist with no fussing, takes up flavors well and there id such a huge spectrum of choices. Very versatile and PORK FAT RULES!

A whole nation of beautiful food was built on Manteca. Pork fat is the best.

Scrambled eggs on pork fat toast. A recipe that will melt any pork admirer. :)

While I don't think any meat will beat a good beef steak, I like pork on a whole because it's so versatile. So many different cuts, so easy to cook, makes excellent gravy, it doesn't care if it's smoked, baked or fried... And who ever thought of putting cubed beef in an omelette, or scalloped potatoes, or a pea salad? I mean, how many uses are there for ham alone?
Pork. The other white meat. Except for ham. Then it's the other pink meat

Why pig?

I think Mother Elizabeth Goose of Boston might be partially to blame for planting the seed in so many young minds!

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none,
And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.

I think the youngest one grew up and went to work for GEICO!

Just straight bacon! What meal/sandwich/burger/ANYTHING isn't made better with bacon?!

Pulled pork roll, bread toasted in pork fat, with bacon, salsa negro and dill pickles. Done!

New question then, best pork on pork dishes??
