There are a variety of different meats that are high in potassium, but the best sources of potassium are actually fruits and vegetables.  

That being said, here are the best meat products for your daily potassium requirements.


One pork chop contains approximately 15% of your daily potassium requirements.  An evening meal would likely comprise of two pork chops, so would count as 30% of your daily potassium needs.


An averaged sized fillet steak comprises of roughly 10% of your daily potassium requirements.  That's pretty impressive when you couple it with the fact that beef is delicious. 


Chicken is another meat that's pretty well stocked with potassium.  An average sized chicken breast will provide you with around 10% of your daily potassium requirements.
