Other highlights: Pork might be the superstar of this book, but it’s also about the meal. Every pork-tastic recipe comes with recipes for a side or a condiment or something else tasty to serve along with it. This is smart — besides expanding your knowledge of all that pork can do, you get a complete dinner!

I love the range of recipes here, from classic Carolina Pulled Pork to banh mi sandwiches with pork meatballs. If you have a pork meat-share and are struggling with how to put all those cuts to good use, this book is a lifesaver.
