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; Center Cut Chops come from the center of the loin, with some including prized tenderloin meat. These are lean, mild-flavored cuts that include a small amount of bone and fat, but they can require some extra attention in cooking when they include large proportions of different muscle tissue, since they cook at different rates. Because of this, they can benefit from brining first to help them stay juicy, and should be cooked fast–these are your pork chop choice for grilling.
