The following guide will help you know how to cook pork safely, properly, and to the greatest quality.
How long to cook pork
Cooking time for pork varies by the size, method, and type of cut. Pork should always reach an internal temperature of 155 fahrenheit (68 celsius) while cooking, roasting, grilling, or broiling.
This is a Health Canada approved temperature and applies to all cuts of pork regardless of how you cook it.
After cooking, let the pork rest for 3 to 5 minutes until the temperature reaches 160 fahrenheit (71 celsius). Now it is ready to serve and eat.
For any pork recipe you make, please use a meat thermometer to ensure your pork has reached proper internal temperature and is safe to eat. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the pork cut (not touching bone, fat, or stuffing).
