Testing for Doneness in Pork
To be sure pork is fully cooked, check the internal temperature with an instant-read meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer 2 to 2-1/2 inches into the thickest part of the meat, not touching any bones - it should read 160°F. If checking thinner pieces, such as pork chops, insert the thermometer through the side of the meat. After pork registers 160ºF, remove from heat and let it stand 3 min. before serving.
