New Guidelines for Cooking Pork

New Guidelines for Cooking Pork

Pork today is very lean and should not be overcooked. To check doneness, use a digital cooking thermometer. Cook pork roasts, tenderloins and chops to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. followed by a three minute rest time, which results in a flavorful, tender and juicy piece of meat.

Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees F. Pre-cooked ham can be reheated to 140 degrees F or enjoyed cold.
