Does anybody else remember the “Pork. The other white meat” commercials, or the “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner” campaign narrated by Sam Elliot?  They never have to advertise for chicken.  In my experience whenever I’m planning a menu for the week, I always have plenty of chicken recipes, a few beef, but pork recipes are kind of few and far between (except for barbecue).  I don’t know if anybody else feels this way, but I’m always on the lookout for a good pork recipe that way I have a variety of protein sources and this recipe has become a weekly staple.
