Bacon Knowledge March 04 2014

Have you ever looked at a slab of bacon and wondered at the awesome layering of fat, meat, fat, meat? I recently took note of how much a cross section of bacon looks like a layered cake… a delicious salty layered meat cake. While bemusing my observations among some fellow enthusiasts, I was informed that the Korean word for pork belly is 삼겹살 or Samgyeopsal, which literally means three layer flesh. It just proves what they say, you learn something new about bacon every day. I was also informed that Koreans eat grilled Samgyeopsal once or twice a week on average for dinner. So obviously I am planning a vacation.
