Spit Roast Catering: The 3 Best Cuts of Pork Meat

by Nino Caron

Pork is actually a lot healthier of an option than what most people perceive it to be, as different cuts possess different qualities. Lean pork chops contain less than 4.7 grams of fat, more than 30 grams of protein, and is considered to be less fat than skinless chicken breasts. There are also other cuts that are fattier and juicer for those who are more concerned with texture and taste. Spit pork roast catering typically involves the whole pork, so you and your guests can choose the type of cut that is best for your needs. Here are three of the best cuts.

The Deliciousness of Pork Back Ribs

Also known as baby back ribs or riblets, roasted pork back ribs are delicious and packed full of flavor making them a common favorite with spit roast catering services. This cut of pork is extremely juicy, tender and quite flavorful even without any marinade or spices. Although pork back ribs are not exactly lean, they are filled with nutrients and are a good source of protein, B vitamins, zinc and selenium.

The Healthiness of Pork Tenderloins

Pork tenderloin is taken from the psoas major muscle along the central spine, ventral to the lumbar vertebrae. It is a cut of meat that is situated close to the ribs and is perfect for those who are more self-conscious about eating healthy. Pork tenderloin is also extremely juicy and tender when spit roasted, but the best part is that it contains little to no fat. In fact, ounce for ounce, pork tenderloin contains less fat than chicken breast.

The Crispiness of Pork Belly Skin

Those who are looking for a mouthful of flavor and juices will want to dive right into the spit roasted pork belly. The pork belly is where all of the fat is located, but it also contains a lot of collagen as well. Pork belly skin tends to be thickest. This part of the pork will also puff up the most for the most delicious and crispy tasting experience ever.


Spit roast catering services are quite popular because they offer dishes that can be difficult to find elsewhere. Having an entire pork spit roasted on a fire in front of you can also be quite an experience. The flames of the fire will seal in the juices and flavor of the pork. If you're interested in spit roast catering services, you might want to consider the type of spices or herbs you'd like to marinate the pork in. In general, pork suckling tend to be more flavorful and juicy in comparison to adult pigs. For more information, see a website such as
