Pork month Continued from page 60 the world because it's the most versatile. There's a world of op- portunities for cooking with pork. Pork can be used in virtually any ethnic meat dish - pork strips are a favorite in Chinese and Thai stir- fry dishes; ground pork is great in Mexican tacos, nachos - or as a twist in traditional Italian spaghet- ti sauce; and pork chops can be seasoned with Caribbean spices, Mediterranean seasonings or Provence herb mixtures. The world of seasoning - subtle, fiery, outrageous, sublime - is yours for exploring. The intrepid seasoner who throws in a pinch of this and a pinch of that with reasoned aban- don will discover some exciting new tastes. For the less courageous, here are some combinations that will add international flavoring to your cooking: 4" American style - barbecue sauce / Italian style - tomatoes, oregano, garlic, basil / Mexican style - cilantro, cumin, oregano, garlic, chilies / Greek style - lemon, garlic, rosemary, mint, oregano / French style - white wine, tarragon, thyme, mustard / Russian style - low-fat sour cream, paprika, onion / Oriental style - ginger, sesame seeds, soy sauce, garlic / Indonesian style - peanut, lime, ginger / Caribbean style - lime, rum, allspice, ginger, garlic / Indian style - curry powder, garlic, chili powder, cinnamon Do I have to cook pork well done? Most Americans overcook pork, but it doesn't have to be over- cooked to be safe. Pork is leaner now and since there is less fat, overcooking will cause dryness. When cooked cor- rectly, pork is done to juicy, ten- der perfection with a little pink in the center. The recommended temperature for doneness is 160 F - at this tem- perature pork retains its natural juices (they will run clear when pierced with a fork) which gives it a distinctive flavor, texture and tenderness. Here's a list of the time and temperature needed to cook some favorite pork cuts. For roasting, set the oven to 350 F. Cook a 3-to- 5 pound loin roast with bone-in 20 minutes for each pound. For a 2- to-4 pound boneless rib roast, cook 20 minutes for each pound. Cook a tenderloin (1 1/2 to 2 pounds) for 20 minutes per pound, but raise the temperature to 450 F. For broiling or grilling, keep the meat 4 inches from heat. Cook both boneless and bone-in chops 6 to 8 minutes. Tenderloins between one-half pound and a pound should be cooked 15 to 25 min- utes, kabobs with one-inch pork cubes should have between 10 and 20 minutes of cooking time and lean ground pork patties that are 1/2 inch thick should be cooked 8 to 10 minutes. For pan broiling, use a medium- high setting on the stove top. Cook 3/4-inch chops, both with and without bone, for 6 to 10 min- utes. Cook lean ground 1/2 inch pork patties for 7 to 9 minutes. What can I do to prevent meat from drying out while cooking? Basting the cuts while grilling or broiling will prevent drying out the surface - the liquid can be meat drippings, fruit juice or a spicy sauce. Be sure to discard un- used marinade. Remember that pork doesn't need to cook too long because it is too lean. For tender, juicy pork, cook to 160 F, leaving a slight blush of pink in the center. What can I do with left- overs? Use leftovers in a variety of ways, like adding pork strips to a favorite casserole; cutting into slivers and adding to a vegetable stir-fry for a quick pan-to-plate meal for the family; or reheating ground pork, cheese and tomato sauce and topping an English muffin for a midnight "pizza" snack.
