What is the difference between a pork loin and a pork tenderloin?
A Pork Loin Roast is 2-3 pounds, wider and flatter, and can be a boneless or bone-in cut of meat. The tenderloin is a long, narrow, boneless cut of meat that comes from the muscle that runs along the backbone. These are really skinny, 1-2 pounds and usually come pre-marinated and pre-packaged at the grocery store.
What is the difference between a pork loin roast and a pork shoulder roast?
As mentioned above the pork loin is 2-3 pounds and very lean. The pork shoulder or “butt” (same cut – both are from the shoulder of the pig) is a tougher cut of meat with lots of fat layered throughout the roast. The pork shoulder/butt roast should be cooked low and slow so the fat can break down the toughness of the meat.
How many minutes per pound do you cook a pork loin in the air fryer?
12-18 minutes per pound
What should the internal temperature be for pork when it’s cooked?
145 degrees. Always! Don’t overcook your pork!
Is it safe for pork to have a blush of pink?
