Pork chops are cut from the loin, which runs from the hip of a pig to its shoulder. This section includes the small area known as the tenderloin. There are several cuts that come from this area, including blade chops (which include part of the shoulder blade), rib chops, loin chops and sirloin chops. The most common cuts sold in grocery stores are the rib and loin chops.
