Easy Recipes - Tips

Pork is invariably fatty. Use a pair of heavy duty kitchen scissors to trim off all the fat. Always.

For all pork recipes, please remember, this meat must always be well cooked. You'll know it's cooked on the inside when a sharp knife is inserted into the meat and the juices that run out, are clear. If it is still uncooked, the juices are bloody.
