Chicago Meat Authority (CMA) introduces Formed Diced Pork, a lean and tender diced pork product. CMA’s Formed Diced Pork is very lean, making it perfect for foodservice operations and institutions, such as hospitals and nursing-home facilities. Before dicing, CMA lean pork is expertly trimmed, and CMA’s proprietary process results in a finished product that is extremely tender and easy to use. CMA Formed Diced Pork is also very flavorful, produced only from butcher-quality hogs. Each 1x1x1-inch cube is individually quick-frozen (IQF) for ease of handling. Formed Diced Pork is sold in two five-pound bags per box, and cooks will be able to efficiently use the product without waste. CMA Formed Diced Pork is best prepared by braising and browning, or it can be sautéed. These cubes make a brilliant sweet-and-sour pork, an amazing pork chili, a mouthwatering pork stew, and many other delectable entrees.
