The pig is one of the oldest forms of livestock, having been domesticated from the wild boar. Prior to the advances in modern farming techniques in the Twentieth century, pork in Europe and North America was traditionally an autumn dish which is why in Western culinary traditions apples, harvested in late summer and autumn, have been served with pork.

Apple sauce is perhaps one of the more common side dishes served with roast pork and there are many recipes which call for the cooking of the pork in cider.

Pork is the most widely eaten meat in the world, although consumption varies widely from place to place. This is despite religious restrictions on the consumption of pork. It might surprise you to know that, per head of population, neither the UK nor the USA are in the top ten countries consuming pork.

Cooking Pork

Cooking pork, like with other meats, is largely determined by the cut to be cooked. Cuts from the lower leg and shoulder, where the muscles have the most exercise, are likely to be tougher and are more suited to long, slow cooking, whereas cuts from the back tend to be lean and tender, making them ideal for quick cooking.

What is best way to Roast a Pork Leg

A leg is usually roasted whole, but it can also be boned and cut into smaller roasting joints, or thinly sliced to make steaks called escalope’s. Pork legs are low in fat and can be quite dry when slow-roasted.

What kind of meat is Pork Loin

The pork loin offers tender cuts of meat that can be cut both with the bone (chops), or boneless (steaks). If you think about beef steaks, then the pork loin offers the following cuts: Top Sirloin – (Boneless Chump) T – Bone – (Centre Cut Bone In Chop Tapered Tenderloin)

Which is the best part of a Pork Butt

The pork butt is the prime part of the shoulder between the neck and the loin of the animal. This area carries the blade bone. The boneless pork butt is a popular cut of meat used by BBQ and Meat Smoking enthusiast as the natural fat content allows the meat to be cooked for a long time without drying out.
