Juicy, soft and with a wonderful crust - pork chops are an absolute treat and should not be missing from any barbecue party! The fat layer also ensures an unforgettable aroma.
The delicious pork chops have almost been forgotten and yet they are a real treat and also provide a whole portion of important nutritional values.
With a crispy, brown crust and soft, juicy meat, they are a hit at every barbecue and also look great when prepared in a pan.
The chop is located on the side of the spine at the back of the pig. This part is also called the cutlet strand and extends to the hind leg. The cutlet is divided into a front and a rear part, so to speak. Chops from the front strand are also known as the stem chop.
Pork chops - the forgotten classic
Whether for short roasting, breading or grilling - pork chops are suitable for countless preparation methods. If the bone is still attached, the meat loses very little liquid during preparation and remains wonderfully juicy. This gives the meat enough time to develop its full flavour.
Chops of straw pig - this is how they become perfect!
Preparing really juicy chops is often not that easy. Because of the relatively lean meat, there is a high risk that it will resemble a shoe sole later on. We at Fitmeat show you how you can experience real pleasure.
No matter which type of cutlet you choose, there are a few important points you should pay attention to.
The colour of the meat is an important indicator of freshness. For a cutlet, it should be nice and pink with a fine sheen. The intensity of the colour depends on the age and feeding of the pig.
Pork chops from Fitmeat
At Fitmeat you only get fresh premium meat that has never been deep-frozen. That's why our pork chops are not only juicy and fresh, they also retain the meat juices better. This means they don't dry out during preparation and stay nice and tender.
The right thickness is nevertheless an important point. Sliced too thinly, even the best chop is quite difficult to cook to perfection. So boneless pork chops should be at least 2 cm thick.
Quantity per person
We recommend one pork chop per person.
Herkunft und Haltung
Pigs are extremely intelligent and clean animals. Therefore, species-appropriate and caring rearing is the be-all and end-all for us.
A requirement that is also noticeable in the taste. If you compare pigs from factory farms, for example, one thing is immediately clear: due to the permanent stress, the meat is much firmer, loses a lot of water during roasting and has hardly any flavour of its own.
For us at Fitmeat, this kind of rearing is out of the question for many reasons. We fight for animal welfare and the appreciation of meat products and strictly distance ourselves from immoral factory farming.
After the careful and stress-free individual slaughter of the pigs, our butchers leave the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful aroma.
