FAQs about pork tail
Pig's tail is a healthy low-salt food with plenty of protein and other essential vitamins and minerals. Proteins consist of amino acids that help your body build and repair muscles. The amino acids also promote healthy bones and regulate hormones. Eating pork in moderation can be a healthy kind of red meat. Pork tail is also a nice change from the typical pork chop dinners that the whole family can enjoy.
Meat from any mammal, including pork tail, can cause an allergic reaction in some people. While pork allergies are not entirely understood, scientists believe meat allergies relate to the Lone Star tick. There's also a link between meat allergies and those allergic to cats.
You can develop an allergy to meat at any age, from childhood to adulthood.
To help tenderize the pork tail, fill at least a gallon jar with water and add about a pound of salt. Stir it well using a long spoon to move the salt around to make a brine solution properly. Add the pork tails and refrigerate for about 48 hours. When ready to use the pork tails, boil them in water for 20 minutes to remove some of the salt.
