Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork Review

Farmer John Extra Lean Ground PorkI couldn't resist picking up a pack of Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork - it was the "extra lean" bit that reeled me in. First, I made my spectacular meatloaf by mixing the exra lean pork with extra-lean beef. The result was juicy, hearty, delicious meatloaf that pleased even my doubting dad. This went over so well that I also decided to make traditional potstickers, which just don't taste the same when made with ground poultry. Surprise! The results were equally fabulous - not dry, like with a lot of lean ground meat, and not greasy, like regular ground pork.

A 4 ounce serving of Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork provides 180 calories, 6% of the RDA for total fat (4 grams), 10% of the RDA for saturated fat (2 grams), 90 mg cholesterol (29% of the RDA), a low 110 mg sodium (5% of the RDA), and a whopping 35 grams of protein. While the cholesterol level is something to keep and eye on, the other stats are impressive.

One chub cost me a reasonable $2.50, and for a less-guilty version of authentic dishes, the taste can't be beat. (Note: The picture is not of the potstickers I made, but rather is taken by disneymike on Flickr - but my potstickers tasted just as good as these look).
