Nankotsu: gross looking mysterious dead pig cartilage parts

Filed under: Uncategorized — theresaurus @ 9:54 am

I’ve never seen these at the supermarket before and was intrigued. I seasoned the strange pork things that resemble tree trunks with salt and pepper and grilled them. Sam enjoyed them very much. Thank you, pigs.



  1. Oh, this reminds me that I had better sacrifice an animal to the gods, just in case, during this first full moon after the equinox. It was so very, very cold today that maybe spring is thinking twice of making an appearance and needs a nudge. Sam was mad when he came home because the Poo Kitty left a special present for him in the parking lot. I nominate the Poo Kitty to be sacrificed. Le Sacre du Poo Kitty.

  2. I’d be intrigued to see a before shot. it looks like chicken cooked like that.

    • Yes, I thought it must be chicken except that the pieces, like in a jigsaw puzzle, didn’t really fit a chicken. And was in the chicken section. I’ve noticed people picking up the packages and looking closely. When I bought these there was an older woman who asked her grandson what it was. I wonder if someone in the meat department put them there by mistake.
