The Lobel family of Lobel’s Prime Meats in Manhattan and Lobel’s of New York online butcher shop are fourth- and fifth-generation butchers. With our Cut of the Month series, we will bring you their wealth of knowledge and expertise on specific cuts of meat, including their unique characteristics, preparation methods, and how to select the best cut.
Pork is a sweet, tender meat that has been eaten for more than 9,000 years. Hogs were domesticated long before sheep, goats, or cattle and so it is no small wonder that pork figures so prominently in most of the world’s great cuisines. In this country, we eat pork chops and pork tenderloin in larger quantities than other cuts of pork from the butcher shop.
This month’s Cut of the Month is a specific type of one of those American favorites: the boneless loin chop.
