Salt Pork

A meat product that is sometimes mistakenly referred to as "fat back". This cut of meat comes from the side and the belly of the hog and consists of a layer of fat with some lean meat streaks running through it. The product is salt cured and is similar to bacon, except that it contains more fat and is not smoked. Salt pork is often used as a flavoring for soups, bean dishes (pork and beans), casseroles, and other dishes.
