    I had pork belly for lunch yesterday, Hotel du Vin in Cheltenham, it was just amazing and the OP is having a laugh….

    Any good iDave? I’ve been in Cheltenham quite a bit recently.

    Had a bacon, mozarella and tomato sandwich earlier. Lovely.

    All meats are good.

    Free range belly pork slow rosted is simply the best value tastiest dinner avaliable

    As the others have said – you ain’t had good pork if you think that

    A really good chop from a great butcher. Great.

    Not having a laugh honestly,its just any time I have eaten it that (to me it is tasteless and I feel the need to curry it, however I have only generally ever grilled pork chops)

    I ****ing love pork me

    Really, it’s the thought of the living beast whilst chewing the meat that really rings my bell

    Delicious, sack the crackling though.

    Then you’ve got veritable cornucopia of sausage and cured porks; Chorizo, Prosciutto, various wursts, etc.

    Pork is perhaps more versatile then other meats, and lends itself well to a whole range of different seasonings and flavours.

    Mmm….pork….

    (Lisa) “Yes”
    (Homer) “Bacon?”
    (Lisa) “Yes Dad”
    (Homer) “Ham?”
    (Lisa) “Dad all those meats come from the same animal”
    (Homer) “Right Lisa, some wonderful, magical animal!””

    I understand the chorizo etc but its the pork belly/chops/joint that I do not get

    Bacon and black pudding sandwiches – the breakfast of kings!

    Zoolander I agree with bacon and black pudding its the main type meat I have a problem with

    apparently, “pigs are a clean animal”

    a good mate of mine was having a poo in afganistan and when he looked down, there was a pigs snout in the hole he was squatting over that was chomping on said baggette as it came out of his ass.

    ham sandwich anyone?

    a good mate of mine was having a poo in afganistan

    And there were pigs? Is he sure?

    😕

    A slow roasted shoulder may be a good place to start.

    Try this recipe

    It ain’t kosher.

    This is another veiled attempt to undermine the ever increasing power and ubiqwi.., yoobickwit.., SKILZ of the pork scratching.

    For a start, (good) smoked bacon is food of the gods, as is a slow-boiled/roasted smoked-gammon joint.

    Had roast leg of pork yesterday – marinated most of the day in chinese spices. **** lovely. Leftovers this evening with noodles and stir fry. Twas good, but not on a par with a proper good beef joint.

    Spit roasted suckling pig is just divine. Proper pork chops and belly pork are very nice. Bacon is a vegetable and should be consumed 5 times a day. The OP is either an Arab troll or gets his meat from very shabby establishments where the main content is injected water.

    I was eating peppered dried pork last night (bought from a supermarket here in Roma). It was a bit like Beef jerky but even tastier. (& I love jerky)

    I’ll be bringing some of that home with me 🙂

    Danepack loin of pork roasted with a little oil and s&p for the crackling at 170 for an hour and 20 mins. Can’t go wrong.

    DON’T OVERCOOK IT OR IT WILL BE LIKE LEATHER

    Pork Bellys are ace, just chuck them on a tin and put them in a hot oven for 45 min or so.

    And if all you do is grill Pork Chops; before grilling just rub a bit of olive oil on, grind on some salt/pepper over griddle them to seal in the juices (especially the edge fat). Serve with apple sauce.

    Mmmm pork belly, gammon. Cold pork is good in sarnies as it doesn’t go tough when cold.

    I live in Denmark and it seems that pretty much every single meal here involves some sort of pork. Almost all of it is delicious.

    I can’t believe there are no sex references yet :p well done lads 😉

    my girlfriend loves the pork :mrgreen:

    Slow roasted shoulder with garlic and herbs and some fresh cheddar mash is a very, very, very good thing indeed.

    And as for Bacon, well it’s Bacon isn’t it, is there anything better?

    Love pork but not done pork bellies yet……. anybody care to give me a recipe?
    I can see a walk down to the farm shop in my future (around lunchtime to be exact) 🙂

    Belly is tasty but lethally fatty! I’d do a shoulder myself.

    I grew up in a house where pork was never cooked. Bacon, gammon, etc., no problem. My father couldn’t deal with the smell of pork cooking, bad memories from the war, never did discuss it 🙁

    Me, I love a nice pork steak cooked with apple and cheese, mmmm.

    Yes. Anything from a pig for me thanks

    Get yourself down to St Johns in London. They serve up pretty much every part of the pig and it’s all really tasty from its face all the way to its insides.

    Pork crackling is the stuff of the gods but bellies are just sooooo fatty I can’t eat them on anything other than the BBQ.
