Country-Style Pork Tacos with Tomato Salsa


by: Georgia Peach

What to look for in Pork? Look for light to reddish pink meat. Avoid anything really pale or grayish. The fat should be creamy white and smooth. The texture should be firm to the touch, with a flue, smooth grain. If it is soft or watery, reject it. If the pork is packaged, it should not have much moisture in the package. Any liquid there should be clear, not cloudy
