Best Comforting Pork Recipes

Thanks to the Ohio Pork Council for sponsoring this roundup of recipes.

October is National Pork Month and I have 20  of the best comforting pork recipes for you to celebrate with.

I personally think that pork is the most versatile meat out there. Yes, everyone loves bacon and a good pulled pork sandwich, but don’t forget about pork tenderloins, thick pork chops, sausage and ham.

I’ve learned over the past year or two that there are so many misconceptions when it comes to pork. Is pork bad for you? How long do you have to cook pork? If you have pork questions, I highly encourage you to read The Food Hussy’s post all about debunking pork myths. She knows her stuff!

Whether it is game day or you need to feed a crowd, try classic pulled pork. Make it in the slow cooker or Instant Pot and use the leftovers in a unique way, such as nachos or as a waffle topping.
