Choose the Perfect Cut

By for The National Pork Board

In addition to living an active life and exercising regularly, the next step that is part of the healthy lifestyle I lead, is to eat inspired on the Mediterranean diet philosophy.

This means that I cook a lot at home—simple dishes with fresh ingredients —full of vitamins and antioxidants and especially flavorful. Based on this, my kitchen has access to a good olive oil, seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables, tasty proteins that are low in fat, nutritious and can use Greek yogurt as a sauce or marinade.

I confess to being a pork lover, and following this Mediterranean diet trend, I always select lean cuts that can be cooked quickly, such as pork loin. An elongated piece, from which several styles of cut come out, it is as lean as skinless chicken breast. And as high-quality protein as it is, the tenderloin provides us with all the essential amino acids for the body.

In this category, you’ll find the NY style chop, the steak “eye” chop, the NY style roast, the Porterhouse style chop, and the entire loin that brings all those cuts together. That whole piece always has a more tender end with a bit more fat than the other end. And just to that end, we can get more creative and make recipes without using the oven or spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

This is what you’re going to do. Go to the supermarket—you’re going to order a whole pork loin and chop the most tender end of it. Then, you will buy the rest of the ingredients of my recipe: Mediterranean Pork Bites, and then you’ll see that you can cook a pork recipe—tasty, fun, healthy and in less than 15 minutes.
