Cuts and wounds
Thanks to the variety of high-quality cuts offered at Maxi, we can say that there really is ham for all tastes. Also, pork is at its best when cooked properly. To achieve this, avoid overcooking the meat and choose the best cooking method, depending on the piece.
Network : One of the most tender and popular cuts in Quebec. The tenderloin can be stuffed, covered with a dry mixture (such as “rubbing”) or brushed with sauce.
Cord : They are a low-fat cut, ideal for a more tender roast.
Cuts : When it comes from sirloin, it’s more meaty: perfect for bacon-wrapped grains. When it comes from the end of the ribs, it has more bone and is more marbled, and therefore tastier.
pork meat : Did you know that pork is processed from one of the three main muscles of the pig’s buttocks, which are the inner part, the outer circular body, the tip or all of these muscles?
ribs : Baby back ribs – maxi’s most popular – are less fatty and have a good thickness of meat on the bone, while “spare ribs” sirloin ribs are known to be more fatty, tender and less expensive.
minced pork : It is an excellent complement to ground beef, as it meets the same production standards, but is much cheaper and tasty. Think about it for meatballs, hamburgers, meat loaves, croquettes, and fillings.
shoulder : Although the shoulder meat is fibrous, it can be easily cooked by slow cooking at lower temperatures. It is also ideal for the famous pulled pork of the “pulled pork” type.
bacon : Artisan or back bacon is a must in Quebec cuisine, which comes in savory and sweet versions, from appetizer to dessert.
