Is 145 Fahrenheit Hot Enough For The Pork to Be Safe?
A lot of people are pretty squeamish about cooking pork at home primarily because of trichinosis, a dangerous pathogen that can sometimes live inside pork.
Alongside a myriad of other parasites and potential illnesses, trichinosis is the number 1 reason why so many people cook their pork until it is burnt to a leathery chew toy.
However, trichinosis is eradicated once the interior temperature of pork is heated to 137 degrees Fahrenheit, making it safe to consume.
Don’t worry about the fact that the instructions say to only cook it 135, though! A pork roast is a pretty big piece of meat, which means it is going to have a lot of carry-over heat.
Once you remove the pork roast from the oven, it is going to carry on cooking for a little while afterward. That residual heat is going to bring the pork up to around 145 Fahrenheit, well into the safe temperature range for pork. Plus, it will still be juicy and delicious!
If you find yourself feeling uncomfortable about the pretty pink color of the meat, then feel free to cook it until it is 160 Fahrenheit, albeit accepting the likely increased tougher texture as well.
What To Serve With Your Pork Rib Roast
This recipe is a really great dinner mainstay because it not only takes very little time to make, but it also doesn’t really require much preparation other than mixing the flavoring and putting it in the oven.
This means you will have plenty of time to make some really delicious side dishes as well. Make sure that you serve it with some kind of comforting starch, like some Instant Pot mashed potatoes or even some macaroni and cheese if you are partial to the Southern comforts.
Alongside a side dish, this meal should feed the whole family and then some!
