The other red meat can offer cooking fans some excellent alternatives to dishes and meals that might call for ground beef as the main ingredient. Like beef, different cuts of pork can come out with different flavours. The difference is that many pork cuts are universally great whether cooked in the oven or on the barbecue grill. Some people are also using ground pork instead of beef to give “hamburgers” a more factual name!
You should consider that if you are cooking the standard pork chop, roast or set of pork ribs on the grill or in the oven, the end results can be very different. Cooking on the grill can result in pork that dries out quickly. The solution to this is to marinate and spice the pork well ahead of the meal time so you get the most flavour out of the meat. Cooking in a slow cooker or the oven will give you in most cases more tender meat that easily pulls away from the bone.
Remember that pork has to be cooked thoroughly through to where it shows little to no redness left. In these pages, you will find some excellent pork recipes suited for various cooking methods.
