Wink Years ago -side pork

Probably 20 yrs. ago I used to take slices of side pork season with fresh pepper, little garlic powder - roll this in cornmeal and fry slowly. My dh and myself loved it. Has anyone else every have this? We were talking about it the other night. Just wondering, maybe we were the only ones ! lol

It was longer ago than 20 years, but I come from a pork-raising family (on my mother's side!) and yes, I sure do remember that! Yum!

My ex-MIL used to fix it, only she used flour instead of cornmeal. It was quite tasty.

My wife is from Panama and they like to take the pork skin that still has a little meat and fat on it and deep fry it. They call it chicharones. She puts hot sauce on it and serves it with rice. Not my favorite but she loves it.

Yes, but just fried, not breaded. And it was "fresh" side meat--not cured. REALLY good!!

not knowing exactly what side pork was, i looked it up. this might be helpful. scroll down to "primal cut - side/belly": http://www.hormel.com/templates/know...emid=31&id=158

jdp, i've had chicharones before, but they were more like pig skin cracklin's. not meaty. the meat on them sounds good!

Barb,
It is a little drive for you, but I found it at Tanks Meats in Elmore, Ohio. I see you're in Monroe, so it's probably an hour from you.

sorry, my link doesn't work anymore.

i'm gonna have to look in the ethnic markets for it.

Yes indeed!!! Love fried pork skins, cracklins too. Open up a bag, shake plenty Louisiana Hot Sauce inside...Good Eats!!!!!!!!

BT you will have to check specialty/ethnic markets for fresh pork bellies!

Enjoy!
