About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Originally sealed, prepacked ground pork will keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. If you do plan on keeping the raw, fresh pork longer before cooking it, store it well wrapped in the freezer. Cooked leftovers can be kept in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Butcher's Tips

To make a ground pork patty gently mix ground pork with desired seasonings, and then separate into individual amounts for each burger. Using both hands, shape the ground pork into circular patties about three quarters of an inch in thickness. Then, fry or grill your handmade creations for all to enjoy!

Review Title

Yummy and Easy
by anonymous 06/18/2014
It was so great to find a full pork recipe, as I accidentally bought bulk ground pork at Costco! This was an excellent way to use it up:). Kids had it for leftovers next day, no complaints!

The egg and cornflakes combine to make a hard paste that's difficult to combine with the pork. Turned out too compact, not at all fluffy. Use bread instead and some liquid, maybe milk.

substitued salsa for bbq sauce and panko for corn flakes. Served with herb rice. Excellent.

I made these for Sunday dinner with scalloped potatoes and green peas and they were very easy and delicious! I doubled the recipe and they are great leftovers. I'm sure they would freeze well, too.

amazing meatballs

I have made this twice. Once with ground pork and once with sausage. You can substitute corn flakes for corn checks or panko flakes. Our family loves it. 

Tasty and easy

I didn't have corn flakes on hand, but used panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) and it worked really well. Just the right size. And you can adjust the seasoning or the glaze for your family's tastes. I tried a thick barbecue sause last time instead of the ketchup mixture. Turned out quite tasty.
