Pork Chops - loin or center cut?

greygarious | Sep 20, 2010 05:40 PM

A local supermarket chain (Market Basket, in New England) had center cut pork chops on sale last week. I haven't bought bone-in chops in many years, and noticed that although these had the T-bone they only had the larger loin portion of meat, not the tenderloin section on the other side of the bone. I have always thought loin chops had meat on one side, center cut both sides, but Wikipedia seems to consider the terms interchangeable. I was at the store close to closing, so the butcher shop was unmanned. I bought them anyway, but am wondering if I am misinformed or if MB was calling a cheaper cut a center cut chop.
