October is National Pork Month and we’ve got this Meaty Monday post lined up to help you get the most out of Porktober.
High in many important vitamins and minerals, including protein, thiamin, selenium, niacin and vitamin B6, lean pork has the same amount of fat and fewer calories than similarly sized portions of skinless chicken breast.
Pork may sometimes take a back seat to beef and chicken, but can certainly hold its own in anyone’s meal plan. Because, well, bacon!
Besides the bottomless uses for our beloved bacon, there really are a variety of pork cuts available allowing you to diversify your culinary repertoire. If you’re looking to add some pork to your table in the near future check out these recipes.
We hope you like these great recipes and get to enjoy them with your family throughout National Pork Month. While you’re gathered with loved ones around the dinner table, please remember the hard working farm and ranch families who work diligently to help bring this protein to your plate. Enjoy!
