Our travelling correspondent, Jerry Smith, came across this delicacy while travelling in China.
It turns out that beef floss is only one of the "meat flosses" - don't forget to try chicken floss and pork floss!
Several Asian cultures have recipes that include meat boiled so throughly it becomes a stringy mass. They call the meat "floss."
This is the most novel use of "floss," we've uncoverered here at the NFC since the investigation of "The Mill on the Floss," several years ago.
Thank you, Jerry, for expanding our world view of "floss," and thanks to Google for helping to explain this exotic form of Floss.
