Aroma of Ground Pork Cooking

OneJayneDoe | Jun 1, 2009 09:42 AM

I made bolognese sauce over the weekend. I make it with ground pork and ground sirloin. Hubby said that the smell of the ground pork cooking was BAD, similar to a stinky fish. The bolognese tasted fantastic BTW, so it left me wondering.

I know the pork was fresh, and it did give off a rather distinctive, not so chowish smell while cooking. Anyone else have a similar experience? What could be the cause? How can it be prevented?
