Okay foodies, I have a question for you. When we were in Denmark a couple of months ago, we visited some friends who served us a pork roast of some kind. It wasn’t really like any kind of pork roast we’d had before, but we couldn’t find out what cut of meat it was. There was a Danish name for it, but that didn’t tell us anything.

In Rome, by coincidence, I ended up eating something very similar at a restaurant in Trastavere. But what was it? It’s time to crowdsource an answer, so a picture of the Italian pork is below. Question: What is this? Is it something that’s even available in America? If so, what would you ask for from a butcher? Does anyone know?

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
