With a combination of loin eye muscle and tenderloin, pork porterhouse chops are one of the meatiest, juiciest cuts on the hog.

We’re all familiar with big juicy beef porterhouse steaks, but did you know you can get a pork porterhouse chop, as well.

Like it’s beef cousin, it contains two muscles split by a bone. One side of the bone is the lean, yet juicy tenderloin, and the other is the familiar loin eye muscle found in classic loin chops. Combined, they make for an extra special dinner.

After adding a little rub, they grill up quickly in about 4 minutes per side. As always with pork chops, aim for a temperature of 145F degrees. If you go too far over that, you’ll dry out the meat.

You can enjoy these pork porterhouse chops straight up, but I like adding sweet, tangy sauces to my chops. This dish includes a recipe for Lingonberry-Dijon Sauce. If you have an Ikea near you, you’ve probably dipped a few Swedish meatballs in lingonberry jam.

Lingonberries are similar to cranberries. They’re tart and sweet and the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats.

Notes

If you can't find lingonberry jam, you can substitute cherry or red currant jam.
Goes great with grilled lemon-garlic asparagus.
