Could someone tell me what stripolean is. A lady was making a mess of beans and they looked so good but I dont know what stripolean is. Also what is country ham. She was frying up some cabbage, something I've never tried, and added country ham with directions to boil the han first to get the salt out. Thanks in advance.

According to google it's either strips of lean bacon or strip clubs in Olean, NY.

I burst out laughing at this because I don't live too far from Olean, NY. Maybe I should take a drive over there. LOL

For the best country ham and bacon you can find go to:

www.smokehouse.com

Cracker Barrel's serve country ham. They also use country ham to season their turnip greens and pinto beans.

Oh my, I grew up on fried cabbage with ham or bacon thrown in. It's the only way I eat cabbage. Fry it in bacon grease and life will never be the same again.

DW says it probably was schnipple beans, aka sweet/sour green beans. An old German dish.

Thanks Bird Freak, now that I know how its written I found it on google.

Okay, well Streak o' Lean is kind of the opposite of bacon. Where bacon is smoked and has a streak of fat among the lean meat, streak o' lean is salt cured and has a streak of lean among the fat. Yes, that's right, streak o' lean is salt pork.
