Confused by all the options at the supermarket when shopping for pork? Scroll through the slideshow to learn the difference between eight common cuts of pork and the best ways to prepare them.
The most popular cut of the pork loin, the chop’s name is determined by where in the loin it is cut. Examples include Porterhouse, rib eye, sirloin pork chop and more.
Braise: For ¾-inch chops, cook over medium-high heat, 6 to 10 minutes, or until evenly browned on both sides. Add enough liquid to reach halfway up the sides of pork, return to boiling, cover and simmer until tender.
Grill: Grill over direct medium heat for 8 to 12 minutes, turning once halfway through.
