Berkshire French Cut Pork Chop - 2 pack

This pork chop is as beautiful as it is delicious. It comes from Iowa-raised Berkshire pigs, known for their high-quality meat. And it's cut for a gorgeous presentation.

As with as with all our pork chops, this is a natural product and may be some variation in size. Each of these unique chops is approximately 8 oz (16 oz total).

Berkshire Pork

Berkshire pigs have a higher concentration of fat than some other breeds, which was highly desirable when lard was used for a variety of purposes. Over the years, though, consumers began to prefer leaner pork, and fewer Berkshire pigs were raised.

However, a recent resurgence in interest in heritage breeds has led to an increase in the number of Berkshire pigs raised in the United States.

Berkshire pork is sometimes called the “wagyu of pork.” Wagyu beef is known for its marbling and tenderness, and Berkshire pork is also well-respected for those traits. In fact, in Japan (the home of wagyu beef), Berkshire pork is known as Kurobuta pork, and is often sold at a premium.

And the premium seems to be well-deserved! According to tests by the National Pork Board, Berkshire pork places first in nineteen out of twenty traits, including:

  • Loin color
  • Loin tenderness
  • Loin marbling
  • Best tasting in all categories
  • Superior cooked moisture content

When you purchase Berkshire pork, you may notice that it has a darker color to it. That is because of an increased pH level in the meat, which is associated with more tender, juicy and flavorful pork.

So if you are looking for a flavorful, tender, marbled cut of pork, Berkshire is a good fit for you.
