About pork rib chops

When it comes to pork chops, there are two different types: boneless and bone-in. The pork rib chop falls into the bone-in category and is one of the two most common types. The other is a center-cut chop. If you envision a pork chop, you might immediately think of the pork rib chop. This piece of meat includes the curved rib bone, which is actually the same bone that makes up baby back ribs. It's basically a pork rib roast cut into individual chops with one bone each.

It goes by several different names, and odds are you've heard of a few of them: rib pork chop, center-cut rib chop, pork rib cut chop, pork chop end cut, and rib end cut. It comes from the pig's lower loin, which is the muscle that runs from the shoulder to the rear.

Pork is one of the most versatile meats available, and the rib chop is no different. It's one of the easiest cuts of pork to prepare. This tender piece of meat has a light flavor and slightly more fat compared to a pork loin. The bone and fat provide extra flavor and release moisture, which helps prevent the chop from getting too dry. It's usually less expensive than the center-cut chop or boneless chop, but it contains less meat.

FAQs About Pork Rib Chops

When purchasing any type of pork product, you want ones that are firm and are grayish-pink. Look for cuts that have small flecks of fat within the muscle, which is known as marbling. This gives you plenty of flavor and tenderness.

Raw pork should be stored on a platter or in a bowl at the bottom of your refrigerator. The refrigerator needs to be at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or less. You can keep the chops in the refrigerator for up to five days. One of the nice things about pork is that it can be frozen without impacting the flavor or texture of the meat. Frozen pork rib chops can keep for up to 12 months.

Never thaw pork on the counter. You have three options when it comes to thawing pork rib chops: in the refrigerator, in the microwave, or in cold water. The best option is to plan ahead and thaw the chops in the refrigerator. Take the meat out of the freezer the night before, and move it to the refrigerator. You can also defrost the meat in the microwave.

For the fastest option, place the meat in a leakproof plastic bag, and immerse it in cold water. Change out the water every 30 minutes to make sure it stays cold. Whatever option you use, make sure to cook the pork immediately.
