Q: Anybody know a chinese brand of pork rinds?

I'm doing a no carb diet and order pork rinds on taobao, all imported supposedly, is there a Chinese equivalent.

 

I never see any in the supermarket and the wife is pissed about my diet and my refusing to eat rice and her cooking so she want research this for me.

 

Pork Rinds seem to be the only snack other than almonds that I can eat.

 

I can't have the beer with the pork rinds but at least I can enjoy something and the salt helps with the quick weight loss with so much protein.

No, but a guy I knew had a thing for pork rinds and couldn't find anything approaching what he was looking for in China so he spent a bit of time on google and learned to make his own. I tried some, they were awesome and when you make them yourself you know there's no gutter oil, dog testacles, fake pork, sugar where there should be salt, hepatitis, offal or whatever else in them.

 

Twenty minutes on youtube ought to do it I reckon.

It is a common dish. The chinese name for it is pork skin, 猪肉皮, first two characters is pork, last character is skin, pronounced as zhu-ruo-peeee.  Most people just use the first and last character, so zhu (sounds like ju of judo) peee.  Or, show the folks in the market this webpage, in case you don't get a signal there, save the page off-line, or download the photo onto your mobile first.

Another webpage teaching how to cook pork rind, in chinese unfortunately, but the name is on the top, and there are plenty of photos on it. I am pretty sure the people knows what you want if you show them this webpage.  It is more common in southern china, but shouldn't be difficult to find in the north.

I've never seen them sold in stores in China. I get pork rinds whenever I go to the Philippines as it is sold in most stores. There is a local variety in Cebu called chicharon. They are the perfect snack while drinking cold San Miguels.

I'll go for 2 more pints with a bit OT here:

 

VINCENT: 'You want some bacon?'

JULES: 'No, man, I don't eat pork.'

VINCENT: 'Are you Jewish ?'

JULES: 'No, I ain't Jewish, i just don't dig on swine, that's all.'

VINCENT: 'Why not?'

JULES: 'Pigs are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.'

VINCENT: 'But bacon tastes good, pork chops taste good...'

JULES: 'Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, But I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherf**kers.

Pigs sleep and root in sh*t, that's a filthy animal.

I don't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.'

VINCENT: 'How about a dog? A dog eats its own feces'

JULES: 'I don't eat dog either'

VINCENT: 'Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?'

JULES: 'I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy, but it's definately dirty.

But, dogs got personality, personality goes a long way.'

VINCENT: 'So by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filty animal. Is that true?'

JULES: 'We' have to be talkin' 'bout one charmin' motherf**kin' pig.

I mean he'd have to be ten times more charmin' than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I'm sayin'?'

If pork rinds are the same is crackling you can make it quite easily yourself, over the gas oven in your kitchen.

African swine fever, I thought this started in China, a new strand mutated in Africa and came back to China, the pigs miss the polluted water here I suppose.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
