Juicy, Spicy Grilled Pork
Cooking on the grill is a summer tradition. You can turn that hot oven off, light up the grill and start cooking foods in a simple and fun way. In addition to keeping the oven off on a hot day, grilling has many other benefits, specifically culinary advantages that you may be interested in. Grilling isn’t just about convenience but also a unique and interesting way to cook.
To begin, grilling foods means cutting back on cooking with fats. When you grill a food, you do not need to add excess fat to prevent it from sticking to a pan. Any fat from the food will also drip down as it cooks, disappearing into the hot flames below. While fat isn’t necessarily a bad thing when eating a low carb diet, it is still healthy to resist ingesting too much fat. However, if you are following a high fat diet, you can actually grill your food in a grill pan, keeping the fat in the pan, next to your food- everyone wins with the grill!
When cooked on the grill, meats will actually retain nutrients as they cook. Meat cooked over a fire has been proven to have more riboflavin and thiamine that meat cooked in an oven or frying pan. This is due to the quick cooking method of the grill and the fact that the outside of the meat sears quickly, trapping the nutrients inside the meat right away.
Marinades and dry rubs also work very well when cooked on a grill. Not only does marinating meat or applying a dry rub to a meat add flavor but it also can improve your health. When meat is cooked at high temperatures on a grill, there are often concerns about cancer causing chemicals getting into the meat (the blackened meat and charcoal cooking are the two main carcinogen suspects). However, when you season meat before hand, it has been shown to eliminate these chemical significantly, eliminating almost all cause for concern.
As you can see, cooking meat on the grill is something you must do in order to improve the flavor of your meat as well as boost the health benefits. In addition, grilling is just a fun, social, outdoor activity that everyone can enjoy. Next time you light up that grill, you must give this recipe a try. Made with a simple Cajun rub, it is easy, loaded with flavors and extremely juicy thanks to the grill which locks in all the beautiful pork juices.
Now it is time to relish in the fresh outdoors as your pork grills away, filling the air with a delicious spicy scent. Grilling is about to be your favorite method of cooking pork and this recipe is also going to be one all your neighbors beg for….maybe print out a few copies to hand out!
