Ask Your Grocer for B&B SAUSAGE Pure Whole Hoj Sausage Seasoned Just Right! A BLYTHEVH.LE PRODUCT Pork Roost Tip: Always Cook It Until Well Done A note to the wise about cooking pork. Always cook pork roasts until well done—to au Internal temperature of 1&5 degrees F. as registered by a meat thermometer. Use an oven temperature of 325 degrees P. to 350 degrees P. Pork loin roasls should be cooked 35 to 40 minutes per pound; pork shoulder roast (Boston butt) 45 to 50 minutes per pound. The longer time required for the shoulder cut Is due to its chunk; compact nature which flows down heat penetration. Note number two—you can fry or broil lamb cl\flps and tender beef steaks, but perk chops or steaks should not be cooked by either of these methods. Pork needs braising to bring out its best flavor. Brown the chops or steaks in a little hot fat, season with salt, pepper and one of the following: ginger, curry powder, paprika, thyme or sage- then add a little liquid, cover, turn the heat down low and cook until tender, about one hour. , Canned Apples, Packaged Biscuit Mix Produce an Old-Fashioned Cobbler Top News Here's a tasty one dish limner that's topped with a crispy mixture.
