Cooking for Two 2009 (not published elsewhere; no video)
"Serves 2" - Serves 6 (pork chops) and 4 (sweet potatoes)
The sweet potatoes contain 892, serving 4 (223 cal PP); the chops contain 1756 cal, serving 6 (293 cal PP). I just used BigOven's calculation using 26 ounces of bone-in center-cut pork chops, separable lean and fat (1266 cal). When I bought the chops the first time for Albertsons, which I realize are probably NOT 1.5 inches thick (urg - I forgot!), they gave me 2 chops at 1.36 lb (21.76oz), which for the meat only is 1060 cal, so that time it served 5 (310 cal PP). The rib bone was 38 grams, so account for that when you divide up the meat.
Rib Chop: Cut from the rib section of the loin, these chops have a relatively high fat content, rendering them flavorful and unlikely to dry out during cooking. They are a favorite in the test kitchen. These chops are easily identified by the bone that runs along one side and the one large eye of loin muscle. Note that rib chops are also sold boneless. In fact, most boneless pork chops you’ll find are cut from the rib chop.
