Whether you're biting into tangy pulled pork piled onto a soft white bun or tender medallions of tenderloin, you're going to get one thing from pork: flavor. Pork comes in many different cuts, and each performs differently in the pan. The shoulder braises beautifully, resulting in tender, moist shreds, while the lean tenderloin is best on the grill or in the oven. Pork chop recipes can be quickly sautéed, and are great paired with applesauce or a slaw.
