MyPlate-Inspired Pork Recipes
These pork recipes are protein-packed and offer a delicious variety of flavors. To maintain a healthy balance, make sure at least half your plate contains fruit and vegetables.
First on the menu: Apricot-Glazed Pork Kebabs. Cooks from the American South to Southeast Asia know that when pork hits the grill—often with a sweet or spicy sauce—something magical happens. Serve this grilled pork recipe with a summer salad of nectarines, tomatoes, and mint. Brown rice pilaf completes the meal.
Serve with long-grain white rice to complete the meal. While the pork stands to allow its flavors to meld, chop the veggies for the lettuce cups and get the rice going. For a milder version, seed the serrano chile or simply omit it.
Hot! Hot! Hot! That is exactly how your wok should be before the food goes in so that you get the crispy, browned edges you want. Get the thinnest slices of meat by using a serrated knife to cut it or by freezing it for 30 minutes.
