pork roast question

Merryworld Jul 31, 2008 02:02 PM

I just bought a box of various meats from a local butcher, and included in the package were two chine end pork roasts. I've never heard of this cut (I thought the chine was the backbone) and am uncertain what to do with them. Roast, pot roast, braise, grill, pulled pork? Any info appreciated. Thanks,

    "Chine" refers to any cut that includes a portion of the back bone so I suspect you have loin portions in that mix. Depending on how it's cut, the bone may have been removed but I'd expect to prepare it like any other loin cut.

      Thanks for replying. I think I'll roast one and see how it comes out.
