Is pork belly pre-cooked in Canada?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (12436points) 2 weeks ago

My family belives that all pork in Canada is pre-cooked. Are they right? I bought five slices. Would like to know how to cook it. I am thinking of using the electric frying pan at 350 0Celsius for until it looks good to eat. I have an electric battery powered meat thermometer that I just found and don’t know how to use buried in somewhere that I don’t want to use.

Not all pork is pre-cooked. Pork chops, tenderloins, ribs, shoulder pork, all require cooking.

Pork Belly is also known as bacon. It needs to be cooked, eveif it is cured.

Smoked and cured doesn’t always mean cooked. @zenvelo is right. It is like bacon and it needs to be cooked. I like mine chopped, pre-fried a bit and then put in a nice thick pea soup.

Are you talking about “Canadian Bacon?”

By the way, 350 Celsius is too hot for cooking anything. That would burn the outside while the inside stays raw. Bacon is recommended to cook over medium heat.

@zenvelo Sorry it should be Fahrenheit 350.

Will update Fluther after I cook it. Might be up to 3 months until I get desperate enough to try some.
