If beef is too expensive but you crave it,
why not disguise your pork as beef?
In China, you can buy a glazing agent and beef extract
to treat your pork to look and taste like beef.
The process takes about 90 minutes.
Police in Xi'an, China discovered a counterfeit beef-making factory that used chemicals such as industrial salts and paraffin wax to create fake beef, which of course sold at a much higher price than pork.
The fake meat was seized by police.
"Okay, you three stand over there and pretend
to examine the meat while I take a photo."
