Default Questions about the "pork" smell with pork

I know this sounds like an odd question and of course pork is supposed
to smell like pork, but please bear with me on this one.

Sometimes when I cook pork, I get that strong, what I can only
describe it as being the "pork" smell. It's that smell from the
cooked pork that's too strong to handle. Just the right amount and
you know you're eating pork, but when it gets too strong, I can't
handle it and it's another dinner ruined for me. Have any of you
encoutered this before?


I've tried different meat shops and markets, but I often encounter
this problem in my dishes with pork and I'm wondering if there's
something I'm doing wrong or not doing to avoid this.

Do any of you have suggestions to reduce the possibility of a too
strong porky smell in your pork dishes? Thanks for your time and
courtesy.

Use proper refrigeration?

Like Bob say's 'Refrigeration'....If you leave the pork longer than a day
or so..It will develop that 'smell' about it and you will notice it whilst
cooking it then!!...It's not necessarily 'off'...but develops a stronger
smell about it !!

If buying 'Pork' to use longer than a day...'Freeze ' it or put in a
marinade until the next day only....

I know what you mean...
I tend to run into this problem when I make shoulder roasts.

I stab the roast all over now and sliver garlic cloves and slip the
slivers of garlic into the stabs. I then top with various herbs before
roasting.

That has eliminated the "musty" porky overtone, especially once the
roast leftovers cool and get re-sliced for later serving.

The garlic pretty well eliminates it. :-)

Just my 2 cents!

I know this sounds like an odd question and of course pork is supposed
to smell like pork, but please bear with me on this one.

Sometimes when I cook pork, I get that strong, what I can only
describe it as being the "pork" smell. It's that smell from the
cooked pork that's too strong to handle. Just the right amount and
you know you're eating pork, but when it gets too strong, I can't
handle it and it's another dinner ruined for me. Have any of you
encoutered this before?


I've tried different meat shops and markets, but I often encounter
this problem in my dishes with pork and I'm wondering if there's
something I'm doing wrong or not doing to avoid this.

Do any of you have suggestions to reduce the possibility of a too
strong porky smell in your pork dishes? Thanks for your time and
courtesy.


I know what you mean...
I tend to run into this problem when I make shoulder roasts.

I stab the roast all over now and sliver garlic cloves and slip the
slivers of garlic into the stabs. I then top with various herbs before
roasting.

That has eliminated the "musty" porky overtone, especially once the
roast leftovers cool and get re-sliced for later serving.

The garlic pretty well eliminates it. :-)

Just my 2 cents!
