Then I saw Jamie Oliver use it to add flavor to brussel sprouts so I bought some out of curiosity. What was it? What part of the pig does it come from? Well I discovered immediately that it was a hunk of pork belly. Pork belly is something I recognize because I hear it all of the time when they talk about stock trading. I always guessed it was a figure of speech used by traders. You know like bull markets.
And pork bellies.
And I knew it was Anthony Bourdain's favorite part of a pig... to eat. It might be yours too because this is apparently where Americans get their bacon. I find this a little bit shocking because the whole reason I know that salt pork comes from the pig's belly is because mine had a NIPPLE ON IT!
Now I don't know if you ever got an egg with blood in it. Or saw a claw in a chicken wing. Let me tell you this is a HUNDRED TIMES WORSE.
We found it both disgusting and hilarious at the same time. So naturally, we took pictures with it.
By the way I can't agree with Bourdain.
I much prefer snout.
Just kidding. Enjoy your BLTs.
