Just want to show you all how does the marbled pork that I mentioned in my Stir Fried Pork with Ginger Onion looks like.
It's not a prized cut from the Japanese Kurobuta Pig. This is just a cut from the everyday pig from the everyday market. But I'm sorry to say that not all butchers know of this cut. This was introduced to my mom by her butcher, and she can't find this at other butchers.
Why is this cut so nice... it almost melts in the mouth, needs not much chewing. The marbling makes it really tender. Very good when sliced and steamed with your favourite marinade and splendid when used in quick stir fries. When my mom used this to make a quick soup with chinese long cabbage, it turned pink, I mean, pink, pastelly pretty pink.
