Description: What in the world is Tasso? It's lean strips of boneless pork which are marinated in a special seasoning and then heavily smoked to create a Cajun delicacy. Tasso is sliced or diced into small pieces and added to beans, vegetables, gumbos, or red beans and rice to add flavor that's out of this world. Give Savoie's Tasso a try!
