Pork in politics can be a bad thing. But in the kitchen, pork can be fabulous. Today's pork is leaner, which makes it better for our health, but more challenging to cook. Not to worry though, there are plenty of food bloggers who are up to the challenge.

First, from the newly re-named and re-designed Cook and Eat comes My Favorite Pork and Beans from L., whose food photography blog, Still Life With is also fabulous.

Stacey from Just Braise cooks up a delicious-looking version of Braised Pork Chops with Apples.

Not Eating Out in New York creates a fabulous looking Sweet Potato and Pork Stir Fry.

It's Pork Chops with Rosemary, Port, and Lingonberry Sauce from Christine of Christine Cooks.

Lisa from Champaign Taste makes Six Hour Roast Pork, featuring a pork roast rubbed with a kind of pesto made of rosemary, sage, garlic, fennel, and a little wine with olive oil.

Char Sui or Chinese Barbecued Pork is one of my favorites, and the version created by Liz of Gastronomy Domine looks great.

The Wednesday Chef tries out Jill Santopietro's Pork Loin with Grapes.

At Tigers and Strawberries, Barbara takes time out from holding her adorable new daughter to make Red-Cooked Pork with Taro and Sweet Potato.

Finally, at Je Mange la Villa Michelle makes Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apple Cider Jus, which she calls "the best sauce ever."
