Pork Cuts and Cooking Methods

pork cuts

You will find a great variety of pork cuts and processed pork products in your Metro butcher's counter.

The choice of cuts is crucial to your culinary preparation; this goes for all butcher meats. Why pay for a particularly tender cut if your recipe calls for it to be stewed or braised?

Always choose meat with firm, dry flesh, and no trace of humidity. Make su#re the meat is a nice pale pink, a little darker if it is shank or shoulder. The grain must be thin and smooth, and the fat must be white. Normally, pork meat is slightly marbled.

The marbling is a small network of collagen filaments that crisscross the lean tissue of the meat. It adds taste and tenderness. It melts when cooked and makes the meat juicier, tastier and more tender.
