The idea that beef produced in Italy is better than imported beef is well founded.

Choosing to purchase a product raised, slaughtered and packaged in Italy is a good starting point.

Italian pork: tender and delicate

The innovation applied to farming has, over time, extended towards a more accurate selection of cuts of meat and towards the preference of bringing tender and delicate pork to the table. To offer a suitable product, certain conditions must be respected: the animal must be slaughtered at a relatively low age - 8-10 months - and with a specific weight that varies between 80 and 110 kg. The operation allows you to obtain tender and soft meat, perfect for the grill. The choice to bring forward the slaughter of the pig has made it possible to obtain some cuts of meat , such as ribs and sausages , which are fairly lean and rich in nutrients, in this way it can be incorporated into a healthy, varied diet and suitable for a diet.

The temperature

Just like any other grilled steak, you also need to avoid thermal shock for pork chops. Before placing the delicacy on the grill, therefore, the temperature of the meat must be close to room temperature. In this way the fibers remain soft during cooking and retain the juices of the cut of meat, the Maillard reaction - thanks also to the marinade - offers the creation of that delicious crust which contributes to making the pork chop super WOW. Attention to temperature is also important to prevent the flame from undergoing sudden variations and compromising cooking times. Keep one eye on the pork on the grill and one on the fire!

Grilled pork, the secret of marinating

Marination is the phase that makes the difference for grilled meat. Both beef and pork must be marinated to ensure perfect cooking and a respectable taste. The marinade prepared according to criteria allows you to enhance the flavor of the pork chops and prevent the juices from dispersing during cooking. To optimize the marinating phase, you need to prepare a mixture of spices to combine with the extra virgin olive oil .

If you choose the meat to grill by creating a mix of beef and pork, you can marinate the meat following the same recipe and making sure that spices and seasonings adapt to the different types of meat. If the choice is for pan-fried pork steaks, you can think of surprising everyone by proposing a recipe with marinated meat. Seeing is believing! Alternatively, you may prefer marinating using RUB which offer particular flavors aimed at enhancing the flavor of the pork.

Pork meat: color and cooking

The discriminating element that determines the cooking of pork is the colour:

  • red interior, semi-raw meat
  • interior tending towards grey, meat overcooked
  • pink inside, perfect meat and ready for plating

Easy? Absolutely yes! Color is the fundamental element, however it happens that we come across master grillers who prefer to talk about degrees rather than relying on a simple look. In this case the perfect temperature is around 65-70 °C.
