Did you know that October is National Pork Month? In celebration of this, Costco is offering special deals this month on select pork cuts. This is the perfect time to take advantage of Costco’s extra savings, so if I were you start gathering out all your best pork recipes and treat your family with a scrumptious meal without hurting your budget. Check out my favorite crockpot pork recipe using boneless sirloin tip roast here. I have to say my house smells like heaven on Earth. I love pork and my children do as well. They have a $2.00 coupon out. I love Costco’s because you can use coupons. I am able to make three dinners for people and one lunch from the meat above that is a huge value for under $20.
If you like to be inspired with some new recipes, check out Costco’s “In The Warehouse”. Each week, they will offer new flavorful recipes and tips using Costco’s featured cuts. If you’re like me who is quite lost with different pork cuts and cooking methods, I recommend that you check out PorkBeInspired.com. They have all the information that you need to know the best ways to properly cook a specific pork cut.
This week I discovered that Loin roasts are delicious when brined or rubbed with a spice mixture and barbecued over indirect heat. And that pork loin roasts should not be braised or stewed as they have a tendency to lose tenderness and fall apart when cooked using moist heat.
Plus, here’s an important information that you should take note of:
Temperature Update: In May, 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.
Now to celebrate National Pork Month, I want you to try out a new pork recipe and to help you out I’m giving away a $25 Costco Cash to one loyal reader!
