Quick fact: Pork is great. Reportedly the most widely consumed meat globally, pork can be thought of as both ‘the other white meat’ or even as a red meat, depending who you ask (and what cuts their using).
While Serbians eat the most pork, North America follows closely behind, seeing as crispy breakfast bacon has begun turning up on all kinds of non-breakfasty foods. Would you have ever imagined bacon on maple donuts, or crumbled into chocolate chip cookies?
Pork is tasty and healthy; it’s 75% leaner than it was decades ago and is packed with protein, amino acids, and vitamins including B-vitamins, iron, and zinc. Pork is a very versatile meat and there are all kinds of cuts that work well in recipes so there are plenty of options for you to use it multiple times a week without getting bored with it. Get cooking!
Pork also creates a great base for adding tangy flavours, like this Mustard Glazed Grilled Pork Chop. And speaking of tangy, this Teriyaki Pork Stir-fry is the perfect one-pot dish to feed a crowd. Or try using the bountiful fall apples in these Roasted Pork Sandwiches with Braised Apple and Swiss Cheese. Whether you need to whip up a feast, need a fast meal or you’re cooking for the family, we’ve got you covered!
