Shaved Pork Loins – The Different Types of pork and the Characteristics of Each

Pork is a type of meat that can be cooked in many ways. Pork Loin is the leanest cut of pork, and because it has less fat than other cuts, it’s the most tender.

There are three Main types of pork loin:

  1. pork chops – these are cut from the rib end of the loin and have a bone running through them. They come in many different sizes and thicknesses, but they’re always sold boneless.
  2. pork tenderloin – this is a long, narrow muscle that lies alongside the backbone between the ribs, and it’s usually trimmed to make it shorter. It’s tender enough to be cooked without any added fats or oils.
  3. Pork Loins – this is a large muscle with a broad surface area that contains more connective tissue than other cuts of pork. This means that it requires longer cooking times to break down those tissues and make them more palatable.
