The nutritive qualities of boneless Chef’s Prime™ pork loin roasts cooked by three household cooking methods to two internal temperatures were evaluated. Fresh pork loins were obtained from a vendor and prepared by UNL’s Meat Laboratory according to National Pork Producers Council’s specifications for the Chef’s PrimeTM trademarked cut with 1/8-inch fat trim. The roasts were frozen for less than two months before defrosting in the refrigerator and cooking.
