Expert Tips

  • Pork is an excellent source of high quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids for building, maintaining and repairing body tissues. Pork is also considered a major dietary source of iron and the B vitamins, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.
  • To make Sweet and Spicy Pork and Apple Stir-Fry, omit the lettuce and French rolls. Cut pork into cubes, cook in 1 teaspoon sesame oil and add 1 clove minced garlic to the pan with vegetables. Serve hot pork mixture on a bed of white rice and garnish with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seed.
  • To add color to this tasty sandwich dinner menu, serve with red and green grapes and milk.
