I went to the market this morning looking for something other than chicken. The “chicken lady” (really, some day I will have to find out her name!) had some pork. So, I asked for a kilo (2.2 lbs.). This is how I know it is pork.
However, it is totally unrecognisable! This is a mixture of bone, bone fragments, fat, gristle, and meat. What do you do with such a mush! I decided to separate the meat from the bones and trim off what I could and see what was left. I was thinking a stir fry was the likely option. And, I was surprised that after all the trimming and boning I was left with 80% of the kilo in usable meat.
(just a note: I had pictures, but my computer doesn’t want to cooperate in loading them. Imagine it. Imagine the most incredible jumble of bones, fat, meat and gristle and you’ve got it.
