Secrets For Cooking Pork
Almost all cuts of pork are tender and can be cooked by dry heat. But keep in mind that pork is lean and cooks quickly. Overcooking pork can make it dry and tough. We test thicker cuts of pork for perfect doneness with a meat thermometer. For thin pork chops, a quick sear on each side will usually be all you need.
Pork is the meat from hogs raised for food. Pork is light pink in color, full flavored, and has a finely grained texture. Most pork in the marketplace today is cured or smoked, such as bacon, sausage, and ham, or sold fresh.
Some slaughter houses have their pork graded by the USDA on a system based on the proportion of fat to lean. The grades are 1, 2, 3, 4, and utility, with grade 1 being the best. All pork is subject to state and federal inspection.
Look for pork that has pink flesh, a clean smell, and white fat. Cured pork should be rosy pink. Pork takes on a gray color when it's been in the meat case too long. Vacum sealed pork will be slightly darker because the meat isn't exposed to air.
Store pork in the package in which it was packed when purchased. Divide large packages of pork into smaller packages when you bring it home if you need to. Use freezer bags that sip shut and push out all the air you can when you are filling each package.
Though pork is virtually disease free it's still recommended that you cook all pork to 160 degrees. Check the temp. in the thickest part of the meat. Rely on your meat thermometer for accurate doneness.
