37 Ways to Eat Pork Today

From bacon to boudin blanc, we love pork in all its forms

By SAVEUR Editors

We don’t always support taking life advice from Homer Simpson, but he’s right about one thing: pork is awesome, and it’s incredibly versatile. You can make a great sausage with pork(don’t worry, we’ve got a guide for that). And then there are the ribs. We have a whole collection of rib recipes to keep your grill busy all summer—a few of our favorite include char-smoked baby back ribs and Kansas City-style spareribs with a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. And how about sandwiches? Start your day off right with a biscuit sandwich with collard greens, marbleized eggs, espresso aioli, and eight slices of salty pancetta. For lunch, move onto our decadent porchetta sandwich with hazelnut gremolata or banh mi with seasoned pork and Vietnamese-style ham and pork roll.
