Chicken used to be the number one meat bought in super markets but now pork is catching up fast with its demand. Pigs are now farmed far leaner than they used to be which means they are healthier to eat, but unfortunately harder to cook. Pork can very easily dry out so it is important to use an instant-reading thermometer when cooking pork. Another tip from chefs is to allow the meat to sit for a little while before you serve.
