Behold: The Cured, Rolled Pig Face

I came across ths recipe for something called Cured, Rolled Face from the geniuses over at bestbyfarr.wordpress.com and it immediately became the single greatest recipe I have ever seen. I’m not sure if this technically qualifies as bacon, but since it’s a pig’s face, I’d say it’s close enough.
Below are some of the step-by-step processes in making the Cured, Rolled Face, because, believe it or not, it’s slightly more complicated than: Step 1: Get a pig face. Step 2: Cure It. Step 3: Roll It. To see them all, click here.
cured, rolled face
Salt heavily and massage the cure into the skin. Both the inside and outside.
Add lemon, thyme, ginger and black pepper.

Roll the face with the tongue and cure for 5 days.
Unroll after the 5 days and rinse off cure.
Remove all hairs that have been left behind… shave, snip or torch
Lay down flesh side up and remove ears, julienne the ears and dice the tongue. Add spices, thyme, microplane ginger and lemon.
Roll up.
Wrap in a apron or cheesecloth. 
Sous vide for 72 hours at 66.5 Celsius.
Cut it open. Look at it.
 Slice it up and serve with mustard and beer.

    That would be awesome rolled in meal and fried, then surrounded with a funnel cake, then put on a stick. Yeah, I’m from Iowa. That’s how we roll.

    You do realize that Soylent Green is PEOPLE, right? Including their faces? I’d rather eat a pig’s face than be a dirty hippie cannibal.

    you shouldn’t play with your food before you eat it…. I read an expose of pig slaughterhouses in the south…. they treat the workers like they’re on a chain gang as they sytematically kill animals more intelligent than dogs we are a sad legion of bullying hegemonic dominionaters but we don’t have long …depressions happen twice a century …like World Wars and we are due…so stop worrying about global warming and go have some baby back pig face ;p

    So many people saying this is disgusting and they have no idea how their delicious bologna is made.
    pig tastes great. And if the pig is good, so is its face. If you like it, eat it. If you dont, then eat something else.
    easy, no?
    And that looks much more appetizing than a slice of salami.

    Up until the part where you sliced it up, I was *convinced* that these pictures were taken from my Boss’s “Beauty Tips From Eastern Europe (circa 1903)” handbook.

    Nope. You’d be amazed how skinny you get fleeing from velociraptors while eating stick-based meals on the go.

    A terrific looking recipe, but I doubt many readers have access to a sous-vide apparatus.

  32. Chitterlings says:

    We got the idea from blacks, who have been known to eat chitterlings for years.

    If you can eat parts of a pigs asshole, might as well eat the face, right?

    man I can never get passed the removing of things faces and putting them over my face… I didn’t know you could eat it to! Next single white female…i mean pig… I murder is definitely going to be eaten after I wear it around for a while. Man I am like the Natives using every part of the carcass.

    damn that’s a lot of fat. would eating an entire face qualify as attempted suicide?

    Everybody loves to eat sausage but nobody wants to see how it’s made. Unless they’ve seen Cured, Rolled Pig Face made, and then sausage making looks pretty tasty again.
