I love roast pork (only roasted). I might like a lord loin chop roasted but actually, I like all roasted meat pork, beef, veal and of course Lamb. But with regard to pork being roasted……you can have the meat and I'll eat the crackling and I do mean all of the crackling.
Who eat that fat? I really do not like the smell of pork cooking so we eat very little of it. I will make bacon a couple of times a year, pork chops about the same, spare ribs maybe two a year, and a roast of pork once in five years, and I trough out all fat from the roast.
I am allergic to pork,which is rather sad,as despite not liking the actual meat so much, I LOVE crackling!!! Even though I am now aware of my allergy,pork was never, before finding out,a favourite meat for me.I am more of a roast lamb person. Mind you,I don't eat a great deal of meat at all really. I would enjoy fresh fish over red meat any day of the week!!!
But getting back to the question....I DO LOVE CRACKLING!!!!
I like pork, but I don't like crackling. Crackling is very unhealthy, but pork is very lean and is very good for you. Better than red meat in fact. I like roast pork, butterflied pork, sweet and sour pork, I put pork in stir frys sometimes just for a change. I love pork with chilli plum sauce and I make my own sauce !!!
We eat alot of pork as hubby is German. I ccan't eat crackling now becaimy teeth aren't that strong but I still do it for the family. The secret to a fantastc crackling is to cut off as much fat as you can, oil and rub salt into skin and place on numerous paper towels in microwave and cook a couple of minutes at a time until all fat is gone snd you have a superb crackling.
As a child I ate it and liked it a lot.
I think pig farming is cruel . I think pigs are very intelligent and I couldn't kill one, so I don't let someone do it for me.Since I realised someone killing an animal for me is the same as killing it myself, I have given up eating meat unless I am capable if killing the animal myself. I haven't eaten pork for 37 years.
