Is Pork rich in iron, and how does it compare with beef?

    Pork has a decent amount of iron. If you are an adventurous eater, pork liver will provide 100% of your daily iron. But if that sounds gross, other cuts of pork have small amounts of iron. A 3 1/2 oz. serving of pork contains about 7% of your daily iron. However, pork does promote iron absorption in the body and the muscle meats tend to be iron enhancing. So, if you eat beans with your pork, your body is more likely to absorb more iron from the beans. It provides a bit less iron than beef. Ground beef will provide about 18% of your daily iron and a sirloin will provide about 10% (both based on 3 1/2 oz. servings).
