Clocking in at nearly 19 million views, this viral TikTok of “secret pork recipes” from @foodmanam really is a cinematic triumph of sorts. At the very least, it’ll have you watching it on repeat a dozen times over.
Set upon what seems to be a tranquil mountain village that wears the word picturesque well, this recipe for pork has highlights that include a robust slab of pork being treated in a babbling stream, a fermentation method of said pork that looks to be done in a hidden nook of the forest, and enough chilies to make magma itself sweat.
Throw in a serene soundtrack and cinema-quality visuals and what you have is justification for the amount of times this TikTok clip has been viewed. I’m quite sure that a good percentage of those views have come from myself alone.
Besides the sheer entertainment value alone, this secret pork recipe is a complex series of steps that make for one of the more unique culinary how to’s on TikTok.
