The one I buy is picture #3. I slice some off for chops and leave a piece to make as a roast.

Picture #4? This is what I buy when I buy pork chops. My picky husband doesn't like the piece of tenderloin that's attached. He looks for the ones that don't have it. He just doesn't like the way it looks.

I'm LOL because I know you people think I'm married to a real nut job. LOL After 33 years, I'm just used to him.

Everybody is fussy about something. Why should you DH be any different.

I wish I could find a bone in chop with the tenderloin still attached around here. I guess tenderloins became to valuable for them to leave it on anymore, even with the added cost.

Isn't that what's called a center loin chop?

What I call a T bone pork chop?

I luv'em!

If you can't find them in the store buy a whole bone in pork loin and have the butcher cut them for you.

You say that like a whole bone-in loin is common here
That's probably a big part of the reason I can't find the chops!
Seriously, I've never seen a bone-in loin. Not even in the meat counter.

I may be able to order one in though. Next time I order a pork belly I'll see if he can get a bone-in loin, too.

Sound like it's time to remodel the chicken coop and start raising a few pigs, then a small smoke house, nuthin fancy! I think I hear the theme from the Walton's playing in the background!

I buy my T bone chops at a small market that still has men in white coats working in the meat department. I will be amazed if the pork belly store does not have some chops for you. Good luck!

I'm surprised! Even my cheapo supermarket carries loin roast with bone still attached and sells bone-in pork chops, with and without the tenderloin attached.

A bone-in pork roast with the rib bones frenched and served with apple cider gravy is a thing of beauty.

Of course, boneless pork is more common.

We have no trouble finding bone-in loin cuts in these parts. I reckon it's all in what the customers keep asking for.

You guys are killing me here

Go back three years and I'll bet you'll find a post about me saying I can't find "regular" pork chops anymore, the kind I grew up with. And you have them crawling into your cart... Frenched even!

Now we do have the family package of "assorted chops", which includes a couple that look like something I'd serve to company, but chops around here are loinless Unless they are hiding them from me. I'll bet that's it.
