What is pork cusion meat?    

By Bob Oros

A pork "cushion" is a lean piece of meat removed from the picnic.  It can be used in any dish that requires lean pork.  The average weight is about half a pound.  A whole cushion can be removed from the side if it is cut all the way to the bone.  Excellent for cutlets and stew and the remainder of the shoulder boned out for sausage.
