In our household, we often bake, roast, and steam meat. We believe that fried food is high in fat which may be bad to our health, thus as much as possible, we refrain from frying meat. Fried chicken, pork belly, and tofu are an exemption, though. That crunch as your jaws clamp down on a juicy bite of fried chicken is such a pleasure to behold as my boys enjoy our lunch or dinner. So if we fry meat, we only use palm oil.
