Grilled Pork Shoulder Stew


by: Cooking Granny

What to look for in Pork? The color and firmness of the meat are the best indicators of quality. 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.
