Here are some incredibly tasty, healthy pork recipes, categorized by cut, ready for you to slide right into your weekly meal plan. You’ll find recipes from bloggers near and far, showcasing the versatility of pork as the perfect partner for an infinite number of flavor combinations! Obviously around here, we raise pigs and have plenty of pork on hand; it is also a stellar go-to option because it’s protein-packed, nutrient rich, affordable and accessible.
Mealtime can often be pretty hectic so there are options below that include the time-saving uses of new fancy power pressure cookers, crock pots and sheet pans to make prep and cook time a breeze.
