Not too much fat, very delicious
Translated from Japanese: I have not used it yet. Recently, the price of pork in this store has gone up, and I was wondering if it would be too expensive for daily use. Just when I was about to give up, I found this new product called "skin-on pork belly block"! The quality of the pork is the same as always: no hormones, no antibiotics, and no genetically modified feed. I was looking for skin-on pork block with high safety, so I didn’t hesitate to buy it. The recent food and energy situation may cause the prices to go up even more, so now may be the best time to buy it? The only domestic skin-on pork blocks I know are distributed in Okinawa Prefecture and in restaurants specializing in Okinawan cuisine, and it’s too big to handle as it is (around 4 kg), and the skin-on pork blocks sold at restaurants for foreigners living in Japan are imported meat from countries with insecure breeding environments.
Incidentally, I want to use this meat for a Vietnamese dish called "banh chung,” which is mainly eaten on festive occasions. I’m currently storing it carefully in a freezer without defrosting function because I will make it when my family members, who live far away from me, return home.
Translated from Japanese: The meat was very firm and with skin.
I made samgyeopsal and it was very tasty and filling.
Thank you very much for your safe and secure meat.
Translated from Japanese: The meat was very sweet. No smell either. I recommend grilling it with just salt first.
Translated from Japanese: I made kakuni and ate it with my husband and child♪ They said that it was very soft and very delicious.
