It is what refer to over here as salted pork (Streak of Lean) and is not smoked. Salted pork may be lean, streaky or entirely fatty. Made from the same cuts as bacon, salted pork resembles uncut slab bacon, but is considerably saltier and may not be bacon-cured and not smoked. It is similar to Salo, except much leaner.

Depending upon your food laws it may or may not be cured so use caution to avoid food borne illnesses. Know what you have to avoid any health risks.

It can be very salty, cut a small slice and fry it, if it is too salty you may have to soak in fresh ice water for several hours to remove some of the salt possibly repeating the soaking process.
