Facts About Pork

PorkPork is meat that comes from pigs and is highly popular in Asia, particularly eastern and southeastern countries. It’s also popular in western civilization. Despite being banned for consumption by Jewish and Muslim religions, it’s still eaten more than any other meat in the world.

Preparing Pork

The great thing about pork is that it can be prepared in a number of ways. It can be fried, boiled, marinated, and made into a piccata. Some of our favorite recipes we’ve seen include pork tenderloin mango pitas, made with cilantro, cabbage, and carrots, and grilling pork chops. Pork is also good for many Mexican foods. It’s often used to make pork carnitas, pork adobado, and pork tacos.

Pork Cuts

Each cut of the pig makes a different meat. In many countries, every part of the pig is used for meat. The shoulders of the pig include the Boston butt, which is often used for pulled pork at barbecue restaurants, and the picnic shoulder, which can be used for higher quality pulled pork, contains less fat and takes longer to cook than the Boston butt.

The torso of the pig includes the loin and bacon. The meat from the loin section, which is the top of the pig’s back, above the pelvic and rib bones, is often used for beef tenderloin cuts and the meat below it is used for ribs. The bacon, which comes from the underside of the pig, is used to make, of course, the infamous bacon strip.

Ham meat from the rear of the pig is used for everything from sandwich meat to Christmas dinner ham. The legs, or hocks, of the pig, head, and ears can all be used in foods as well. At Quinteros Meat Company, we also sell patas de puerco, or pork feet, and buche, or pork stomach, which is also enjoyed in many Mexican foods.

The Health Benefits of Pork
