Pork

Pork meat is cheap and tasty. For many years it has been demonized because it was considered high in fat but today with modern farming techniques it can compete with the veal. However, remember that by reducing the consumption of meat can only be a right choice for your health!

The pork cooked with cabbage is a very good combination that is prepared outside Italy too. Here I show you two recipes from the north. Both are winter recipes that use cheaper cuts of meat, but thought in a different way and with opposite nutrtitive values.
