RECIPE: Fried Pork Fat
2 pounds of Pork Fat - availabe at any Asian stores.
They usually have it in the back. So just ask the person at the meat department.
Prepare Pork Fat
Remove pork skin. Dice the pork fat into small cubes.
They will shrink during the process. Put them in a large pot and render the pork fat cubes over medium heat, occasionally stirring. As the cubes release more and more fat, the rendered fat tends to splatter quite a bit. It's done when the pork fat cubes are golden brown; remove them from the oil.
Place a piece of paper towel on top of a plate and pour the fried pork fat over the top to drain.
You can store the left over fried pork fat in a glass jar and keep refrigerated once it has cooled. They should be fine for a couple of weeks.
