About the Cut: Cubed and Sliced

Cubes are often the basis for kabobs which can be sautéed or grilled. Cubes and pieces also may be braised or stewed for soups and stews. Sautéed strips can be the basis of a quick-cooking meal like a stir-fry dish, a dinner salad or a hearty sandwich. Cooking times vary depending on the size of the pieces.

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Modern-day production has reduced pork’s fat content.In fact, pork is a major contender in the lean meat category and many cuts of pork are as lean or leaner than chicken. For example, pork tenderloin is just as lean as a skinless chicken breast with 2.98 grams of fat per 3 ounce serving and meets the government guidelines for “extra lean.” For the leanest cuts of pork, look for the words “loin” on the label.
