Ground Pork

  • 1 lb of Ground Pork

Established in 1991, Hillview Heritage Pork near Rosebud, AB is where the pigs are free-run and the ground pork is gluten-free. If you're a fan of the mild flavour that comes with ground pork, these conveniently packaged 1lb portions would be a great addition to your box. Though the difference is not huge, compared to beef, pork is lower in saturated fats, cholesterol, and calories. It is higher in amino acids and has a rich flavour.

COOKING TIP: Sure you could make meatballs or Bolognese with ground pork, but you could also make stuffed mushrooms. Cremini mushrooms work best for these. Start by scooping out the mushroom (including the stem) and chopping it up into tiny pieces. Next, sauté the chopped up mushrooms with ground pork and some Italian seasoning. Once the pork is fully cooked, take it off the heat and add some cream cheese to the mixture. Once combined, stuff the cream cheese-pork-mushroom mixture back into the mushroom caps. Dip the whole mushroom in melted butter and sprinkle some breadcrumbs on top before finishing them in the oven.
