So, what is gras de porc?

"Gras de porc" is a French term that translates to "pork fat." It is a versatile ingredient used in cooking for its rich flavor and ability to enhance the texture of dishes. Pork fat can be rendered down into lard, which is often used for frying, baking, and sautéing. It also adds depth to stews, soups, and sauces. This ingredient is commonly used in traditional French cuisine, particularly in charcuterie, as it helps preserve meats and gives them a distinct taste. Additionally, pork fat is a source of vitamin D and monounsaturated fats, which are beneficial for heart health when consumed in moderation.
