I bet you had no idea that October was National Pork Month? Seems like there is a month and day for everything. I love to change things up once in a while and prepare meals with pork. I can often find lean pork chops so my meals are still healthy.
Right now through October 7th Costco is honoring National Pork month with a sale:
This week, until October 7, Boneless Chops & Roasts are $2.50 off at Costco. Great for any meal of the day, boneless chops are quick-cooking crowd pleasers, perfect for easy entertaining. Lean, tender and juicy, chops can be further broken down to make party-starting kabobs, simple stir-fries or festive sliders.
Pork Makes the Party: Pork’s versatility and its ability to pair perfectly with a variety of foods and flavors makes it perfect for bringing people together this holiday season. This holiday season celebrate pork as the catalyst that “makes” any party – join in!
Temperature News: The USDA reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees.
