Bought one a few days' ago, I picked the best looking one from about 40 pieces, never seen so cheap pork, good value for money still but you get what you pay for as it is marked up as for pulled pork which is a glossed word or spin doctor word for really tough meat full of fat and gristle, but when used it slow roasting it does not matter as a lot of fat is roasted out and meat is soften so this is what you get after cutting it up for other uses:-
~55% lean meat but separated out into strands of muscles rather than one or two big muscles, slightly tough for stir fry but OK, inevitably still have some tough bits and gristle
~30% very gristley meat with connecting tissues (85% fat and gristle, with 15% of lean meat)
~15% of pork skin with fat.
Therefore once cut up, unless you roast it as whole like for pulled pork or Sunday roast, the lean meat is OK for stir fry, the gristles are good for stews with very dry meat (like turkey) or with vegetable as gristles are good for gelatine. The pork fat is discarded or be used for roasting chicken. The pork skin can go into stews.

If I would buy it for £4 - I would burry it as it should

​It was humanely shot or electrocuted. Had a big smile on its face. How would you like it to have died?

It died of a heart attack while on holiday in a ultra all inclusive pig hotel in the Maldives , getting a full body massage and trotter polish , while sipping on Bolly .. Now don't ruin my illusions of animal welfare.
Good for slow cooked pulled pork?
Bargain! Make it in the slow cooker for 5-6 hours & that way most of the fat melts away! shred & season the pork, mix in some gravy, fill your bread baps / rolls ( Don't forget the apple sauce ) it's not halal, ENJOY!!
is it Halal ?

is it Halal ?



Obviously not...It's Kosher....

is it Halal ?



Only if it's hidden in samosas
Japcar ...Pmsl.. That's a good one! But true though! Halal is everywhere! 95% of ( so called Indian curry houses & takeaways ) are actually Halal, you don't see many mr Singhs / Kumars running/ owning them places! But Halal is unavoidable!
& thanks cleverkever that's a simple enough recipe to follow, I love pork & stuffing batches , so I'll pop down Nuneaton asda first thing in the morning xx

Well the region is the Indian Subcontinent made up a dozen or countries, not just India. They don't have exclusivity on the cuisine (_;)
