Our Kan Kan Chop is an item we began fabricating after an adventurous chef’s request, and it has been intriguing chefs since. It is a cut first created in Puerto Rico in 1957, and it is still being served there today in a big six pound version of this chop. Ours is cut an inch and a half thick and weighs a mere two to three pounds. It consists of a bone-in loin chop, with a strap of belly and the skin still attached. Puerto Rican chefs would roast it and then finish it in the fryer to crisp the skin. Chefs who have experimented with it recently have intimated that their process involves a sous vide step, and then a trip to the fryer. We ask that you send photos and recipes, as the excitement this chop generates is fun to witness.

Approximately 13-15 pounds

These things are amazing!!! We no longer have to travel our beloved Puerto Rico as often in order to enjoy this delicacy... I highly recommend.
Being from Puerto Rico i know what a kan-kan is and this was just perfect. Thank you Heritage Farms Cheshire Pork. Will definitely be buying again.
I love this cut, which includes the belly and skin. I sous vide it for a long period to Medium/medium rare to soften the skin, then brown it in a skillet or with a torch.
Purchased the Kan Kan chops for a cookout with friends, and the chops did not disappoint! High quality meat that turned out exactly as I'd hoped! The service at Heritage Cheshire was outstanding as well! I'd recommend them to anyone, and look forward to my next purchase!
