Lard (verb):
To "lard a cut of meat" is to take strips of fat (usually done with sliced bacon, salt pork, etc..) and to insert them deeply into the meat. This is usually accomplished with a "larding needle". A large needle used to thread the strips of fat through the meat. This process adds flavor to bland meat and moisture to dry meat. This technique is used primarily in french cuisine.
An influential heavy metal/punk band consisting of ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, Ministry's Paul Barker and Alain Jourgensen, William Rieflin, and Jeff Ward.

Between Jello's many spoken word performances, he and Ministry's members get together and record Biafra's many rants and raves to the tune of Ministry's token industrial, heavy metal frenzy.
