How to cut a pork loin into chops from scratch? ❓

1) place the bone-in loin to a chopper and keep it fixed so it doesn’t move anymore when you make cuts
2) use a sharp knife and make a cut between two rib bones by following the bone line until you reach the spine bone
3) make similar cuts between all rib bones
4) take a cleaver and cut the spine bone in the extension of the previous cuts, try to hit just one-two times on the spine bone, in the same place
5) cut the chop out by using again the knife (this is recommended to make clean cuts so that the pork chops will look good)

Cooking tips about how to cut a pork loin into chops 🔎

Even if slicing a bone-in pork loin might seem hard and tricky to some people, in reality, this operation isn’t so exhausting.

You have just to follow several cooking tips when you learn how to cut a pork loin into chops and everything will go well.

  • use just very sharp knives when you slice meat, this will help you making clean cuts, using less energy, and avoiding serious injuries
  • keep the pork loin fixed when you make cuts or you hit with the cleaver, otherwise, you can cut yourself very easily
  • cut the loin immediately after you take it out from the fridge, so the meat is cold and it’s easier to slice
  • don’t wash the loin before slicing, you can hold it better and it will not slip out of your hand
  • don’t work in the kitchen when you’re nervous, you’re tired or in a hurry

Besides chops, a whole pork loin can be cut into steaks. These are boneless meat slices, so you have to remove the bone before slicing the loin.

After you remove the bone by knife, the procedure is the same, excepting the use of the cleaver, that you don’t need at this time.

Pork loin and pork steaks can be cooked in many ways. Some of the most food recipes including these pork cuts are grilling on the coal BBQ, in the pan, or in the oven.

Generally speaking, it’s better to cook pork chops on the grill after you have marinated them. There are available many techniques and marinade recipes, so I won’t mention any of them in this article.

Another popular dish with pork chops is pork schnitzel, with or without breadcrumbs. This food is especially popular in some European countries like Austria, Germany, and Hungary, to name but a few of them.

Whatever is the way you are going to cook this pork cut, learning how to cut a pork loin into chops is very important.

Therefore, I recommend you to watch this video tutorial and then try to proceed similarly. For sure, you will be able to slice the whole pork loin in a very short time!
