Pork Chops

Pork chops are the most common cut of pork in the U.S. They originate from the pork loin, which is the loin muscle along the back of the hog. Because the loin muscle fibers run in one direction and contain adequate marbling, pork chops are generally very tender, juicy and flavorful. Pork chops can come either boneless or bone-in, but the only difference is really appearance. Some pork lovers would argue that including the bone infuses more flavor into the meat, but it is also less convenient. Pork chops are also extremely versatile and, therefore, can be prepared in a variety of cooking methods. A traditional pork chop is prepared using a hot sauté pan or grill, allowing the outside of the meat to sear and lock in the juices. However, pork chops can easily be prepared in the oven as well. Pork chops can also easily be sliced into cubes or strips to be served as skewers, stir-frys, sandwiches, salad toppers, chilis, soups or tacos. For additional flavor, pork chops can be dry-rubbed or marinated.
