Sirloin is something different: a cut from the upper hip not quite as uniform and tender as the loin/tenderloin, but easy to cook. The differences in pork cuts are subtle. Any of these cuts will be easy to handle if pork rather than beef. Choose pork by appearance and QPR, and look for slight marbling in the meat.

Also Know, is pork sirloin the same as pork shoulder? Pork sirloin roasts lack the marbled fat associated with pork shoulder roasts. The rear loin of the pig is tougher and leaner, so while a pork sirloin roast is full of flavor, it can dry out quickly unless cooked properly. Arm picnic shoulder roasts are marbled as well, though less so than Boston butt shoulder roasts.
