Healthy or unhealthy?
Despite being one of the most popular meats around, pork often gets a bad reputation for being unhealthy. If you get good quality lean pork, it can be a great source of protein and nutrients including omega-3, B6, B12, and zinc. It is also a very versatile meat that can be used in a range of different recipes from throughout the world, such as spaghetti bolognaise, san choy bow, yellow pork curry and American-style pork ribs.

For best results for cooking your pork, the meat should be at room temperature before you begin. Ideally, once cooked, the meat should show a slight pink colour in the middle. Just like when you are cooking steak, when cooking pork in the pan, only turn it once to ensure its tenderness.
Remember that your pork will continue to cook after you have taken it off the stove or out of the oven. It’s good to take the pork off the heat, cover it and rest it for approximately 10 minutes before serving.
When you are serving pork, try cutting it across the grain. This will give more tender pieces due to the shorter fibers.
