Purchasing Pork Loin Chops

Pork loin shops are tender, prime chops with a characteristic T-bone on one side.

Pork chop meat should be reddish-pink in color; the darker red the meat, the older the animal it came from.

When purchasing chops - I prefer thicker chops - especially those with the bone-in.

Because it takes longer for the meat closest to the bone to cook, thin chops may have a tendency to overcook and dry out before the meat near the bone is cooked.
