So, what is grasa animal de cerdo?

"Grasa animal de cerdo" is a Spanish term that refers to the rendered fat obtained from pigs. It is commonly used as an ingredient in various cuisines, adding richness and flavor to dishes. Pork fat has a melting point lower than human body temperature, making it ideal for creating tender and juicy meats. However, it is also high in saturated fats and should be consumed in moderation. Its use is widespread in traditional Spanish dishes, such as chorizo, and is also used in Latin American cuisine to add depth of flavor to dishes like refried beans and tamales.
