What cut is meant by "Lean Pork"?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

What cut of pork is intended when  a recipe calls for "lean pork"? I don't think its pork tenderloin, so what does it mean exactly?

It means many cuts will work. Tenderloin, loin, sirloin and so on. Not shoulder, butt, fresh ham. I use a lot of pork sirloin tip roasts. It's inexpensive, can be cut in different ways for different uses and is quite lean. It even braises fairly well which is surprising.

phatch is right...the leanest cuts come from the loin section.  Pork tenderloin is definitely one of them.
