Pork Shoulder Chop
Need an excuse to fire up the grill year-round? This pork chop is it. The shoulder cut is a favorite of our butchers because it’s bursting with flavor. Our pigs run around and live in the woods, which helps them develop muscle that has a hearty taste but still remains incredibly tender.
Your typical pork chop is cut from the eye of the loin, which is located at the top back of the pig. However, the shoulder chops come from the loin section closer to the head of the animal, which results in a little more fat, a bit more bite, and a lot more flavor.
The easiest way to to cook this beautiful cut is to simply season with salt and pepper, then grill them until you reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees (medium). If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, they also are delicious topped with a little peach jam before removing from the grill. Always allow the meat to rest before serving.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
