The history of pork chops can be traced back to the domestication of pigs in Europe and Asia. The first domestication of pigs is believed to have taken place in China around 10,000 BC.
A pork chop is a loin cut taken perpendicular to the pig’s spine and is often a rib or portion of a vertebra. Pork chops are less processed and have a higher proportion of lean meat than other cuts. Pork chops are generally served as an individual portion and can be complemented with applesauce, vegetables, and other side dishes.
