Sometimes dubbed as “the other white meat,” pork comes from the meat of pigs, hogs or domestic swine which are farm-raised. In many cultures, it’s considered as a prime food source along with beef. It is also the center of many celebrations, especially the whole pig which is roasted on an open pit, its skin crackling and turning burnished brown.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), young hogs at around 6 to 7 months produce the pork we get from the butcher or the supermarket meat section. When buying from the supermarket or local butcher, look for pork meat that has a firm, grayish pink color and a relatively small amount of fat. It’s cut into various kinds of slices while the rest of it are cured and made into leg of ham and bacon. Fresh pork produces the following prime cuts: shoulder, loin, side and leg. Each cut further produces meat cuts that are then used in various pork recipes.

The USDA recommends cooking pork at an internal temperature of 145°F with a rest time of three minutes. The rest time indicates “the amount of time the product remains at the final temperature, after it has been removed from a grill, oven, or other heat source.” As in other kinds of meat, avoid overcooking pork in your recipes as it toughens up. The best ways to cook and prepare pork meat is through roasting, grilling, frying, curing into hams and bacons, and sausage making.

The hocks, snout, internal organs and other non-prime parts of the pork are also used in cooking. This is especially true in the traditional foods of other countries. In the United States, these kinds of pork meats have recently gained popularity in the restaurant scene where chefs fashion various creative dishes out of it.

In the categories below, you will find various pork recipes that make use of the different cuts of meat. Fry the pork chops and serve with vegetables on the side. The pork tenderloin can be breaded or broiled, the better to enjoy this tender cut. Pork loin and pork roast may be roasted and glazed with various sauces and spices. The delicious pork belly amy be made into porchetta or slowly braised to render it tender and infused with sauces. For a hearty and satisfying meal on its own, make a pulled pork sandwich from a slow cooker.
