猪肉表面肥瘦分层相间的部位。

DEFINITION

Noun

The cut of pork with distinct layers of fats and lean meat.

由来
  • 三层肉位于猪的腹部,此部位的脂肪多,其中也夹杂着肌肉,可明显看到猪肉表面肥瘦分层相间,因此得名。此名称受到福建(闽南)方言 sam tsân bah 的影响。
ETYMOLOGY
  • Pork belly is the flesh that runs on the belly of a pig. Lots of fats are found on this part, with evident layers of fats and lean meat beneath the skin, thus the Mandarin term is literally translated as “three layered meat”. This Chinese term takes its influence from the Hokkien (Minnan) term sam tsân bah.
