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.
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.
This Health Canada approved temperature applies to all cuts of pork regardless of how you cook it.
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).
