How do I know pork is fully cooked?

As pork is a lean and versatile meat that can be enjoyed in various dishes, it is essential to know how to cook it to ensure it is safe to eat properly.

The most reliable method to determine if pork is fully cooked is by using a meat thermometer.

Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, avoiding any bones, and verify that it reads at least 145°F (63°C).

Another method to check for doneness is by cutting into the thickest portion of the meat and ensuring that it is tender and juicy, with no pink color remaining. (although checking the internal temperature is the only way to know for sure!)

Remember that undercooked pork can lead to food-borne illnesses, so always cooking it to the correct temperature is crucial.

How do I store leftover cooked pork?

If you’re wondering how to store leftover cooked pork, you should keep a few things in mind to ensure it stays safe to eat.

First, make sure the pork is completely cooled before storing it. This can help prevent bacterial growth.

Second, store the pork in an airtight container or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil to keep air out. Finally, you can store cooked pork in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months.

Properly storing your leftover pork can help you save time and money while staying safe and healthy.

Make this Orange Glazed Pork Recipe for a hearty recipe that is full of comfort food flavor!


  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 tsp orange zest
3 Tbsp fresh orange juice

  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1½ Tbsp whole-grain mustard

  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1½ lbs. boneless pork tenderloin roast

  • 1 large red beet, peeled and sliced

  • 1 12-oz. bag tri-color carrots

  • 1 red onion, sliced

  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves + additional sprigs for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the oven rack in the center of the oven. Add parchment paper to a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk 1 T of the olive oil with the orange zest, orange juice, honey, and mustard. Add the salt and pepper and stir.
  3. Rub the orange glaze all over the pork loin, coating it on all sides. Place the meat in the middle of the sheet pan and set it aside.
  4. Toss the carrots, beets, and onion with the rest of the oil ad thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the veggies around the pork in a layer and avoid overcrowding.
  5. Place the sheet pan in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes or until the pork reaches just above 140 degrees and the vegetables are fork-tender. (145 degrees is the recommended temperature for safe cooking for pork, and the internal temperature will rise a few degrees as it rests)
  6. Take the pan out of the oven and closely cover with aluminum foil. Let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes.
