Pork - Pork sirloin
Where on animal


The row of chops with the bone removed is called pork sirloin. The meat is lean and can be handled in roughly the same way as the tenderloin/fillet of pork. The pork sirloin retains more of its moisture when roasted whole in the oven.

Keep in mind

Let the layer of fat remain during cooking and remove it before serving. If you prepare the meat in slices, you can cut it in a few places to avoid the pieces bending into a cup-shape.

How to cook pork sirloin

Sear it for a tasty surface, let it rest after cooking and slice immediately before serving. Or fry it in slices – but there is a risk that the result will be dry and uninspiring.

The classic

Fried in butter and seasoned with freshly ground pepper. That is all it needs.
