Burong Baboy (Preserved Salted Pork)

Burong Baboy…………… I remember when I live before in our province in pangasinan (back in early 90’s) Everytime my uncle buy some pork meats in butcheries, He always seasoned the meat with lots of salt. Keep it on an ice box as we don’t have any refrigerator to keep our meat frozen. Once the pork seasoned with salt, it will last for a week. Usually we just fried it or mix up with some fresh saute vegetables or pinakbet dishes. It is also a favourite dish by my wife’s grand mother……………………Did you know that pork often gets a bad reputation because of its unhealthy benefits such as rising of hi-blood pressure and heart related diseases. But when it comes to minerals, pork nutrition facts are packed with them all. Phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc are found in large numbers in one serving of pork meat. as an addition pork is also a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese….Well I guess, to summarize up, every thing or food intake which is too much, might be dangerous to our health. Do you agree?
