How to Cook Pork

For pork, I prefer to use tenderloin because it is the leanest cut. If you want a quick dinner, you can just throw some spices on it and throw it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. If you want to get a little fancier, you can sear it using oil and a very hot cast iron pan and finish it off in the oven. Another option is to slow cook it for 6-9 hours until the meat is able to be pulled apart. Then you have a lean pulled pork.

Just like with chicken, you can use pork as a stuffing or as a filling. Experiment with it to figure out how you like it best. And remember, if you are trying to maintain a low sodium diet, try not to use more than 1/8 tsp of salt per person.
