    Polish Pork Cutlet Meal

    Polish Cookery :
    Poland's Bestselling Cookbook Adapted for American Kitchens
    Poland, like France, is a country where people really know food.

    One can stop at a wayside inn in the country or at a modest restaurant in a working-class city neighborhood and be served a meal worth remembering. Good food is a tradition.

    Polish Cookery is an American adaptation of Uniwersalna Ksiazka Kucharska (The Universal Cookbook), long the most famous standard cookbook in Poland.

    In Polish Cookery, you'll find recipes for Meat Patties, Potato Croquettes, Venison Pastry, Partridge Pie, Game Pate, many variations on the celebrated Pierogi, or dough pockets, and Buckwheat Cakes.

    Polish cuisine evolved over centuries, a combination of East and West, aristocratic hauteur and peasant fare.
    It is a rich culinary heritage that is faithfully represented here in Polish Cookery.

    Pork The Other White Meat

    Good for the Waistline, Good for the Wallet

    Now, more than ever, people are looking for tasty ways to trim their waistlines, and their budgets. Staying within both a caloric and financial budget is as easy as updating your menu with a new centerpiece - pork.
    Pork is extremely versatile, packs a protein punch and pairs well with almost any flavor. Plus, six of the most common cuts of pork are 16 percent leaner and contain 27 percent less saturated fat than they did 19 years ago.

    "Those looking to maintain a healthy weight should not underestimate the power of pork," said Mitzi Dulan, Registered Dietitian. "Research has shown that a diet rich in lean protein helps dieters feel full, which may lead to eating fewer excess calories."

    In fact, a study from the Obesity journal found that women who cut calories and included more protein, including six ounces of lean pork per day, kept more muscle mass while losing weight than women who consumed the same amount of calories but less protein. 

    Pound for pound, pork is also one of the most economical buys in the meat case and lean cuts don't stop with those from the loin. According to new data from the US Department of Agriculture, ground pork is now available in lean choices that rival other lean meats. Any way you slice it, you'll find savings at the grocery store with pork.

    Maximize your budget and put pork to the test tonight. Plan to prepare the Mustard-Herb Crusted Pork Loin roast for dinner and use the leftovers for a delicious Pork Cordon Bleu Sandwich the next day. 

    The Mustard-Herb Crusted Pork Loin Roast has only 150 calories and 4 grams of fat. This pork loin roast is trimmed of external fat and it could help you do the same. It also has an amazing 20 grams of protein and nutrients including phosphorus, zinc and potassium, which are all key to keeping the body fit and healthy.
