The hogs at South Texas Heritage Pork are raised roaming the pasture and grazing naturally. They are never confined nor fed like factory-farmed hogs and this results in extremely lean cuts of pork. We are lucky to have them nearby and to know the fabulous folks who own and run the place! They sell their products through many local restaurants and at the Pearl Farmers Market near our house every Sunday.
This meal featured five ounces of grilled pork chop served over mixed greens and tomatoes. We did use just a little bit of low-fat dressing on the greens, which typically wouldn’t be allowed with meat from the “lean” category, but since this pork is so much leaner than supermarket pork, we figured we had a little leeway.
