The recipes, which include 30-second hyper lapse how-to videos, will be promoted on PorkTeInspira.com and other social media platforms.
"I have a passion for cooking with pork and ribs, loin and ham are some of my favorite cuts," said Chef Mendin. "With these recipes consumers will learn how easy it is to create delicious and flavorful pork dishes at any time for family and friends."
Featured recipes are:
Guava Glazed Back Ribs - These back ribs are infused with garlic and herbs and then boiled to fall-off-the-bone tenderness. Then just put the ribs on the grill and brush them with guava sauce to layer on the flavor. Bring this dish to your next neighborhood cookout and become a BBQ hero.
Adobo Pork Tacos - Taco fact of the day: A "taquiza" is an informal gathering where people stand around the grill or the table with tortillas in hand ready to make their own tacos. For your very own taquiza, prepare a Mexican adobo rub using chipotle, chili powder, cumin, oregano and garlic. Next, roast the loin, cut it into 1⁄2 inch cubes – and then comes the best part – the fillings and salsas. Grab a corn tortilla and pile on the pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, beans and cotija cheese. Ready to dive in? Get in (the taco) line.
Glazed Pork Saltimbocca with Sage - This recipe keeps it easy and classy with Marsala wine, sage and prosciutto as its key ingredients. With the pork chops wrapped in sage and prosciutto then glazed with the Marsala wine, this simple cooking method is sure to receive big praise.
Grilled Ham with Spicy Teriyaki - We took the traditional pineapple ham – and then gave it a kick. The teriyaki glaze is the perfect combo of sweet and spicy. It's made with pineapple juice, soy and sugar. Just add chili garlic, jalapenos or sriracha to wake up your palate.
Mojo-Marinated Pork Tenderloin - One recipe. Two ways to enjoy it. Start with a pork tenderloin marinated in citrus, garlic and onions – also known as "Cuban-style." Serve on top of rice and beans or place the tenderloin between two pieces of bread and enjoy a sandwich bursting with flavor.
Peruvian-Style Pork Stir Fry - Take a wok on the pork side. We put a pork spin on this traditional dish. Start by slicing pork tenderloin and toss it in a wok with onions, tomatoes and soy sauce. Cook until pork is golden brown, then plate with French fries and white rice. Be prepared to serve seconds. Maybe thirds.
