Crispy Chinese roast pork

Miss Needle | Apr 3, 2008 11:53 AM

Hi. I ordered some crispy Chinese roast pork in Chinatown a few days ago for DH. This is the pork with the crispy skin as opposed to the BBQ one. The guy asked me lean or fatty. Nobody has asked me that before so I just said fatty. I got pork that was about 50 - 60% fat -- didn't look that appetizing and DH didn't really like it. What are you supposed to do with it? Do people really munch on chunks of fat or do you put it in other food where the fat kind of melts into the dish -- though I'm not sure how much of this fat will melt.
