Boneless pork sirloin chops are a cut of pork that comes from the pig's hip area. These chops have had the piece of hip bone removed that is usually attached to them, and they are between 1/2 and 1 inch thick.

Boneless pork sirloin chops are best suited for grilling, braising and sauteing cooking methods. They pair well with a variety of fruits, like a mango salsa or apple chutney, and they pair well with most barbecue fare.

As with all cuts of pork, great care must be taken with boneless pork sirloin chops to avoid the risk of foodborne illness. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends cooking pork until it has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees F before removing it from the grill or stove.
