    I’ve only made them once before but I bought some on sale last week so I’m making them tomorrow. Any favorite recipes to share?

    I have made them a handful of times because I really don’t like them. They always come out so dry. I don’t know if I am a bad cook or not – are they just a dry meat?

    I’m not sure since I’ve only made them once. :) I do think that’s one pitfall to avoid when cooking pork chops but hopefully someone has a foolproof recipe to help them turn out well!

    i cook pork chops often b/c we dont eat a lot of red meat. i always buy boneless.

    you have 2 kinds of pork chops, thin cut which tend to be about 1/4 of an inch and regular which are about 1/2 inch. if you arent familliar with porkchops i’d go with the thicker ones since they retain their moisture better. most people over cook them b/c they dont realize that pork chops are still a little pink when they are done. really, i promise it’s perfectly safe as long as it’s cooked to temp.

    i just season them on both sides (we have alot of seasoning grinders i really like lemon and pepper) and then throw them in the oven at 300 to 350 for 30 minutes for the thicker ones or until they’re done and flip them when they are about half done. the specifics are really going to depend on your oven.

    another quick easy favorite ia pork bbq. just to throw them in the crock pot with enough water so they wont burn on the bottom and stir every hour or so once they are cooked enough that it has that shredded look just put in the desired amt of your favorite bbq sauce and let it cook on low for another hour or so.

    i buy center cut boneless pork chops and by the time they’re done baking there is very little fat on them at all.

    For something easy and flavorful, a mixture of maple syrup and Dijon mustard is good on either pork or salmon.

    That sounds good, embra! Thanks!

    I ended up making a simple recipe with balsamic and beef broth (called for chicken and they were out), onions, cracked black pepper and sage, and they turned out really well. DH said they were the best pork chops he’s ever had. Not gristly or dried-out at all.
