Believe me when I say your prep work for this meal will be done in less than 10 minutes.

Pork is most definitely known for being the other white meat. It is surprisingly lean.  I had sworn off pork of any kind many years ago, when I was in my “I don’t care for the taste of pork” phase.  It eventually dawned on me that with the right cuts, it is a lean protein that makes the taste buds happy.  I was just purchasing the wrong brand and cuts. I can honestly say that pork and I have become close friends again.
