The Different Ways Of Cooking Pork

Pork is ideally cooked when it reaches slightly over 63°C. It’s best to test this using a meat thermometer. Perfectly cooked pork is juicy and tender, with a slight touch of pink in the centre.

The Other White Meat® explains two methods for cooking pork: dry heat and moist heat.


Dry-Heat Methods

  • Grilling: Best for both small pork cuts cooked over direct heat and large pork cuts cooked with indirect heat.
  • Broiling: Best for small cuts such as chops.
  • Stir-Frying: Best for small cuts such as strips and cutlets.
  • Pan broiling: Best for pork fillets , ham slices, bacon.
  • Roasting: Best for large pork cuts such as ham and loin.

Moist-Heat Methods

  • Stewing: Best for smaller pieces such as shoulder cubes.
  • Braising: Best for less-tender cuts.

The method you use also depends on your personal preference, but it’s worth trying all of them. In addition to supplying pork fillet in bulk, the following meat products are also available:

· Bacons

· Assorted hams

· Assorted loaves

· Marinated ribs

· Sausages

· Footlong sausages

· Hocks & shanks

· Breakfast sausages

· Specialised smoked pork products, which include smoked pork fillet, Boston butts and gammon.
