No More Pork Chops?

I don’t know about your house, but we have pork chops about once a week. Really good stuff, when you cook them correctly. However, it looks like we may never get to have them again…at least by the name we know them by.

Yesterday, the USDA approved the the pork and beef industries to rename a various cuts of meat. The big one on the list that has been cut, pork chops.

The reasons for the name changes, they want to do 2 things: 1.) Make the names more descriptive 2.) name the names less complicated. Seem that there has been some confusion over the past 100 years about things like “boneless shoulder top blade steak.” So the decision was to simplify the names.

Here are a few of the examples of renamed cuts.Different types of pork chops will now have steak names like:

  • New York chops
  • Ribeye chops
  • T-bone chops.
  • Beef loin top sirloin cubes are now kabobs.
  • Pork butt (which is actually pig’s shoulder is now called a Boston roast.
  • Boneless shoulder top blade beef steak is now a flatiron steak.

Thankfully, ground beef is still just ground beef. Seems as though that was the one cut of meat that fit its name.
