Where does it come from? Loin Primal
Pork chops are the pig equivalent of steak, hailing from the loin primal that spans from the shoulder to the hip in the back and includes a small strip of meat known as the tenderloin. Depending on where on the loin the chop comes from, the meat and preparation can be very different; the Blade Chop is from the top of the loin, near the shoulder blade. It includes part of the shoulder blade and is comprised primarily of dark meat, resulting in a delicious full flavor. This cut also has a fair amount of fat and gristle in comparison to other chop cuts, but if you treat it properly with tenderization or a slow braising, this is a delicious cut of meat.
