PORK

Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. Ground pork needs to be cooked to a higher temperature of 160°F.

ROASTS

Roasts should be started at room temperature, first pan seared or roasted at 500°F to build flavor, and, finally, roasted to completion at 350°F. To pan sear the roast, we suggest starting it at high heat for a short period then reducing the heat for the remainder of the searing time. See below for oven roasting temperatures by cut. After roasting, let rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Suggested cooking times will vary by oven. Please defer to the internal cooking temperatures listed above to ensure desired result.
