Smothered Pork Chops.
Dry, tough, chewy pork chops? I know it’s a common problem. I always here people asking the same question how to make a pork chop that’s not dry and so chewy you can never swallow it.
Different Ways to Cook a Pork Chop.
Pork chops, bone in or out, can be baked, grilled, or fried.
Either way, you choose, seasoning is very important. You can use rubs, salt & pepper, sauces, marinade, any combo that you prefer.
They need to be cooked thoroughly so you don’t get sick, but if they are over cooked they are ruined. They have to be 145 degrees in the thickest part. It’s best to use a kitchen thermometer so you don’t have to cut the meat because another important part is to let the meat rest so all the juices go where there supposed to and not leak out all over your pan.
