Sakura Pork Rib Rack
The Sakura Pork Rib Rack, also known as the prime rib of pork makes the perfect roast this Holiday Season. Cut from the rib area of the loin, the rack of pork contains a little more fat than other pork roasts, making it incredibly juicy and flavorful. This Pork Rack features short, Frenched bones, meaning the meat and fat are trimmed from the end of the bone. Combining this technique with the generous marbling throughout makes for an impressive presentation.
The Sakura Pork Rib Rack is best when cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. For additional Roasting tips and some of our favorite Holiday Recipes check out these Resources from The Ranch.
