Comments from NetEase:
MLGB, is there anything that can still be eaten?
With pork and beef both having problems, is anyone asking how mutton is doing?
Let me tell you, there are different price levels for mutton sold on the market, with the cheap mutton being pork, fox meat (leftover from those selling fur), and other discarded/unused meat, soaked in sheep urine (to increase the mutton flavor/aroma) then cut into pieces, sold to the markets. This has all been exposed on television before, netizens.
Chinese are the world leaders in creating counterfeits/fakes!
Author, are you teaching us how to use beef extract?
Never say that China doesn’t have indigenous innovation, because in the field of food products, [China] can produce endless creations. In the future, there will be no need to guess every day how you will die, instead you can guess every day just what exactly you are eating, and if you can guess then you’re impressive.
This is one that is known, but what about those we don’t know about?
Sigh, the direction of society’s development is truly unimaginable.
A NetEase how-to post!!! I’ve learned something.
This kind of trick is already considered civilized [not that bad], there’s also using sodium borate to turn pork into beef, and 15 grams of sodium borate can kill you (for children, just a few grams). To think that I used to often order hao you niu rou [a well-known beef dish] when going to small restaurants, I’m filled with dread…
A crazy nation, does crazy things.
Anyway, this kind of thing isn’t something that has just come out recently, it’s been ten or eight years now, I’m just waiting for the rabble to become immune to all poisons.
China’s government officials are all blind, stupid, idiots! What fucking use their daily meetings are!
Morally bankrupt countrymen, for thousands of years China has not been like this [until now], disappointing.
The fifth great invention contributed to the world by Chinese.
Beef. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
