On the subject of Pork

It’s come to my understanding that pretty much whatever an animal eats tends to affect its flavor, once cooked. A prime example would be seagulls and how they’re basically unpalatable due to their nature of just basically eating anything and everything. Another prime example would be bears, and although I’ve never indulged, I’ve heard that grizzly’s taste horrible because they naturally eat more meat than black bears, which for some reason flock more towards berries and honey….whether or not any of that is true, I DO know that pigs are basically fed leftovers from buffets in slop and I assume that food is sometimes even rotting, but yet, pork naturally tastes good. Of course, when seasoned it tastes better, but one cannot argue that even just regular pork, with heat applied is at the very least palatable.

Why is that? And why is pork pretty much the most versatile meat out there? I mean you can eat pretty much any part of a pig. Perhaps there’s something I don’t know. Would you geniuses indulge us with your knowledge of pork, and while we’re discussing this why not share some recipes.

Pic related is simply boiled pork chops with spinach which I quite enjoy. Any leftovers will be a garnish on the side for ramen. Please any and all input would be greatly appreciated, and I hope you’re all well fed and content with your lives.

    How many cuts of pig have you eaten? Some do definitely have a vaguely gamey taste.

      Well I've only eaten store bought—supermarket meat, but I've always wanted to taste wild boar; but only if I kill it myself and cook it on the spot. What I don't understand is WHY commercial pork tastes pretty good (it's not my go-to) when pigs pretty much eat garbage.

        your pigs are fed corn, fruit, or other tasty/high sugar stuff a good week before slaughtered so that the meat doesnt taste "pig"

      lol what? Anon, explain this response. Is it because my pork doesn't look good? Well, that's the thing. It doesn't "look good" but it tastes fine. This is the reason I decided to create this thread, because why....WHY does simple pork with simply heat added to it taste at the very least, okay?

    an old trick is to give the pigs mostly fruit to eat for a couple weeks before slaughter.

    This is what is known as a faulty prior assumption and founding this entire thread on it being a true premise makes any resulting conversation pointless

    This is also true for pork. They feed fish or fishmeal to pigs, but if they don't supplement the diet correctly, the meat ends up smelling fishy. If you ever get a fishy smelling chicken thigh or pork chop, the animal's diet was cause.

    Sometimes the meat I bought often taste a bit gamey, they say cus it was from a butchered male pig but idfk probably true, on that topic as well, has anyone tried piglings or juvenile ones? I feel like there is a texture and flavor difference

      A male pig becomes a boar if it's not neutered. The testosterone turns them into boars which have very offputting smell/taste. They keep a few uncastrated pigs around for breeding, and they can still be kept from becoming boars if they're pampered and fed the right diet. But if they ever have to fend for themselves, their test production kicks in.

    The pork you buy at the supermarket was fed grains and animal feed. Try eating wild boar and come back to tell us, especially male wild boar.

    Chickens eat industrial slop as well and free range ones eat bugs.
    Idk tho, my pigs eat veggies, leftovers and nuts. I honestly doubt they'd eat rotting food unless they were starving.

        I was talking about pigs in that last sentence. I only brought up chickens because they too eat questionable shit, even the healthy ones.

          Good that you raise your own...something like 70% of American commercial pork is now Chinese owned..They finish with ractopamine.

          Iberian Ham is AMAZING... All those acorns.
          I wonder if a strict hazelnut and truffle diet would be as good?

            This is Banned in Europe, the UK and even Mainland China, so why do Americans and Canada still accept it?

            >With the Smithfield purchase, a Chinese company now owns 1 in 4 pigs raised in the U.S.
            And thats just that company. Funnily enough, ractopamine is banned in China.
            Anyway, pigs love acorns but the iberian ones, since they are outside all the time, only eat them throughout fall/winter. You'd need to invest if you want to feed em just nuts n truffles lol.

              Sorry...had to got get another bottle of Vodka to keep up with the Danish poaster drinkthread.
              If you were to invest in hazelnut trees , I'm to understand that truffles naturally gravitate towards the tree's brulee.
              If you could innoculate them with a good spore slurry...

    why would you use porkchops in a boil, shoulder or buttroast would be a better choice due to more intramuscular fat content as well as being cheaper by the lb
