DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooks all across the country are making flavor happen, and it's all thanks to pork. Pork is the protein for every day, perfect to indulge with and prepare some mouthwatering recipes. That is why the National Pork Board (NPB) has teamed up with celebrity chef Richard Ingraham, responsible for the flavorful, well-balanced diets and meal planning of celebrities including NBA and NFL superstar athletes. Ingraham will bring to life 'The Taste of Now' campaign, aimed at creating awareness of pork's unmatched flavor and now value.
"There is no better time than now to cook and enjoy pork and I'm excited to bring pork's 'The Taste of Now' to the African American community," said Chef Ingraham. "It's my favorite protein to cook with because of its rich flavor, versatility and healthy options."
Chef Richard Ingraham Brings the Taste of Now:
Whether you are celebrating the big game or a family reunion, Valentine's Day dinner or Easter brunch, pork will surely make a statement on your table. Chef Ingraham will feature two new mouthwatering recipes from PorkBeInspired.com:
Oven-Roasted Back Ribs - We like to call these "rainy day ribs." If you don't want to man the grill in the rain, that's when these oven-roasted ribs come into play. Served with a rib sauce that tastes like it was passed down for generations, toasted whole-grain buns and coleslaw, this is a meal that will definitely be added to your weekly rotation.
Garlic-Mustard Pork Roast - The garlic-mustard paste is the hero of this recipe. Made with garlic, oregano, olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper, this paste adds a rich, delightfully tangy flavor to pork loin. This recipe takes a little over an hour to make, but trust us, it will taste like you were roasting all day.
