Pork Chop Types Explained
Many people can be confused about pork chops. There are many types of chops to choose from. We cover in this section the six main types of cuts of pork meat.
Rib chop is also known as Bone-In Ribeye Chop or Rib End Cut. This is one of the best types of chops to get and it’s the most expensive. You can trim the excess fat and can be treated like a steak.
Center-Cut Loin Chop
This cut is also known as Porterhouse Chop or Top Loin Chop. This is cut from the center loin and has both loin and tenderloins sections.
This cut of chop is also known as Pork Loin End Chop. This is from the upper loin, and almost the same as the center-cut loin chop but has no tenderloin.
This chop is also known as Sirloin Steak. This cut of pork is a challenge to grill and to keep it tender. When using this cut, be sure to marinate it several hours before grilling.
Boneless Loin Chop
This cut of chop is also known as America’s Cut, New York Chop, and Pork Loin Filet. This chop is the leanest chop and great for stuffing.
This chop is also known as Blade Chop, Pork Shoulder Steak, and Pork Steak. This is a tough meat and should be marinated before grilling. Cook low and slow for best results.
Some of the cuts of pork chops are better than others for grilling. Some of these cuts of meat will taste better when marinated.

- In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, vegetable oil, soy sauce, honey, salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. In a separate cup combine cornstarch and water. Whisk well and slowly pour into the saucepan mixture. It should thicken up. Set aside.
- Preheat the George Foreman Grill with the lid closed. Place the drip tray in front of the grill.
- When the grill is ready, place the pork chops on grill and close the lid.
- If chops are ½” thick, grilling time should be between 8-11 minutes. At the 8 minute mark, before removing chops from the grill, brush the chops with the brown sugar mixture. It should caramelize so keep a close eye on it. Cook for additional 2 minutes, for a total of 10.
- Be sure the internal temperature of the chops is 145 degrees F. Use a digital meat thermometer for checking internal temperature.
- When done, remove the chops from the grill and place on serving plates and pour on remaining brown sugar mixture on chops.
- Turn off the grill by pulling the plug, or by pressing the on/off button if your model has this feature.
