Popular Pork Recipes

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. As for bacon, well, you can use it in just about anything: Try bacon-wrapped meatloaf, bacon deviled eggs or stick to a classic: a BLT made with garden-fresh tomatoes.

Roast Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing

During the autumn season in Italy, turkey is often deliciously paired with a stuffing of chestnuts and sausage. The wild turkey was brought to Europe from the New World, and once domesticated, returned there to breed as the classic festive bird. It also became one of the large courtyard fowl animals in Lombardy. With Italy being one of the largest producers of chestnuts, it was expedient to put the two together in another happy marriage of New and Old World.

Rosemary & Garlic Crusted Pork Loin with Butternut Squash & Potatoes

Pork today is so lean, the meat will be dry and crumbly if overcooked, but there are a couple of tricks to help avoid that fate. The first is to turn the pork over halfway through the cooking time so the juices will concentrate in the center of the roast instead of settling on the bottom. Second, take the roast out of the oven when it is about 5 degrees below the recommended internal temperature, which is 160 degrees F. The meat will continue to cook as it rests.
