21 Must-Make Ground Pork Recipes To Add To Your Arsenal #pork #dinner #appetizer | yummyaddiction.com

In my previous post I told you that even though I’m a meat lover, usually only chicken, turkey, and beef can be found in my fridge. While that’s entirely true talking about my food choices, this statement has also some lie in it. I totally forgot that MY fridge is actually OUR fridge and it belongs to my hubby too, ha! Well, at least a part of it. A smaller part.

With that being said, other kinds of meat also make it into our kitchen. Lamb, pork, sometimes even duck or goose. However pork is the most popular choice because it’s crazy cheap where I live (sometimes Lithuania is called a country of pork) and it’s used in the majority of the national Lithuanian dishes. My hubby really loves it, especially in the ground form. While I myself am not too much of a fan, lean ground pork is quite delicious so I often share a meal with my hubby (it’s easier than making a separate dinner for myself).

Lately, though, I am kinda sick and tired of the same ground pork recipes over and over. If I am making a sacrifice for my husband cooking with ground pork, at least I get to choose the recipe! Fair enough, right? Yesterday I browsed through like a hundred of various food blogs and picked the best (in my opinion) ideas to put into practice.

In this list you’ll find everything from burgers to spring rolls, meatloaves, soups, pies, and more! Believe me, there is nothing better than cooking and trying out a new delicious dish!

    I love your choices – some wonderful ideas to make the most of ground pork! We tried only limited traditional Lithuanian food when I visited, though that included some interesting Karaite food, near Trakai.

      It had to be “Kibinai”, that are called Pork Empanadas in this list. That’s the most popular Karaim food and there are plenty of them in Trakai 🙂
