Lunch time already here in Manila and I'm forfeiting the usual lunch time feast and sticking with a cup of rice and my favorite canned food - pork and beans . Not the healthiest meal mind you but hey, it's a personal favorite so I'm happy. Sometimes, you make decisions in life that make you happy - regardless if it is good for you or not! Whoa! Some deep musings there for a random post about pork and beans! Anyway, there is a Weezer song to serve as an aural accompaniment as you think about what your favorite canned food is. The title of the song, you guessed it, 'Pork and Beans' While you are it, might as well mention your favorite Weezer song. Please mention it in the comments section below. One thing that has bothered me with pork and beans is the apparent lack of pork. I mean, it pork and beans we only get one small piece of pork? What's up with that? So I did some internet sleuthing which is basically typing out the question and letting Mr. Google answer it for me. As it turns out, the pork added in pork and beans melts during the processing of making pork and beans. The pork in 'pork and beans' refers to the flavor and not the actual meat. Who would have thought of that? I certainly did not.

Pork and beans I used to hate. But my taste buds changed when I was in my teenage years. However, I could never eat that with rice. As an appetiser, yes.

I am not a fan of pork and beans myself. I hope you enjoy your lunch. Oh and the image you are using (not sure where you got it) but the template is the same as the Heinz brand can of beans. Heinz Beans in Tomato Sauce. I don't have a can or I'd show you what I mean, but those are my favorite beans.

About the picture, I got it from Pixabay, if I'm not mistaken. Familiar with Heinz, but this photo kinda reminds me of Hunt's.

@allen0187 I promise you it's a heinz brand item... Heinz and Hunt's could both be a part of ConAgra foods though...

I didn't know that either. Here in the UK we get beans and pork sausages and those sausages don't disappear.

Love that song as well. El Scorcho is also a favorite of mine. I wonder if Weezer will ever play here in the country.

That's why I call it "beans and beans!" Yes, there is only a small piece of pork in it. It contains protein anyway.

Not sure if it contains anything aside from fats!

It melts because it's pork fat that they use to cook the beans. This is not a common food here.

I love pork and beans until now but we don't call it pork and beans, we call it beans and beans because we can't almost see the pork but I love the taste.

I don't really mind the lack of pork because I am throwing away the few pork bits in it. I am only eating the beans.

I would never go for beans that only have pork flavour. You got me into craving for pork which I have not eaten in months. Shall plan for that soon.

If it had been pork(s) there would be a lot... just kidding. I like Pork and Beans, too! Though I rarely buy one. Most of the time, I buy noodles.
