so my supermarket had salt pork on sale, both sliced and unsliced. i got a couple of packs of the sliced stuff and was wondering what i could do with such a product. thinking of throwing some into a carbonara later this week. dunno what else to use it for.

related, should i buy the unsliced shit too? it looks just like pork belly. can you treat it the same way?

pic related, same brand i bought.

it's unsmoked bacon. you can blanch it to get some of the salt out then it would be like a fatty pancetta.

The best use you'll get from it is flavoring other things like soups and sauces. Tastes like bland ass alone

Why you buy sliced? If you buy it unsliced you can leave it on low heat in a pan for a few hours, get delicious rendered lard, and have leftover bacon hunks for use in things like carbonara later!

I use salt pork as the basis of my cooking liquid for beans or lentils. I buy unsliced though, so you might have to adapt the method a but.

>cut salt pork into cubes
>brown over medium low heat, rendering the fat
>add diced carrot and onion, saute until everything is deeply caramelized
>add chicken stock, thyme, and bay, and bring to simmer. Cook about 15-20min, then strain out solids
The remaining liquid will impart amazing flavor to whatever you cook in it.

Beluga lentils cooked that way, cooled, tossed with some greens, chopped walnuts, and roasted root veg, then dressed with a nice savory vinaigrette gives you a pretty awesome lentil salad.

Came here to type this.


Op, use it with bones for stock. I like using it with rotisserie chicken carcasses because pork and chicken taste nice together, and both are often on sale where I live.
