Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Sealed, prepacked fresh pork cuts can be kept in the refrigerator 2 to 4 days.  If you do plan on keeping the raw, fresh pork longer than 2 to 3 days before cooking it, store it well-wrapped in the freezer.

Butcher's Tips

Pork tenderloin makes an elegant entrée for a small dinner party but also can be roasted or grilled whole for quick weeknight dinner. When sliced crosswise (like a loaf of French bread), the resulting medallions also may be sautéed.
