Pork butt actually makes for great ground pork because it tends to have a good amount of fat.
Is pork mince the same as ground pork?
Basically, yes. Pork mince is finely chopped or ground pork, which would put it in the same category.
How long does ground pork last in the fridge?
If you’re going to keep it in the fridge, you need to have it cooked up within 1-2 days for freshness. Any longer than that and you’re going to want to throw it into your freezer to save for later.
