Honestly, we think if Sequeira saves this weird and unassuming item in her refrigerator long enough, she could pull off some cool April Fool’s jokes. Sequeira told Food Network if someone opened her fridge at that precise moment, “You would reach in for a tub of yogurt, you would open it up, and you would find this brown, shaky, Jell-O-y-looking stuff.” The reason? She added that, “We slow-cooked these pork shoulders for, like, 12 hours, so the stock has so much gelatin in it that it’s this Jell-O.” Not quite what you expected, right?
Pork-flavored Jell-O definitely doesn’t have our taste buds salivating, but it did make us wonder if Sequeira’s now-jiggly broth unintentionally created a whole new dish. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Per Mom’s Dish, there’s a dish from Eastern Europe called aspic, which is a gelatin broth with pieces of meat and vegetables floating in it. It doesn’t sound too appetizing, but you can’t knock it ’til you try it.
