Commonly Asked Questions

How can you tell if the pork chops are done?

We want to avoid having overcooked and under-cooked pork chops. When pork is cooked for a very long time, they dry out and get chewy. Then there’s the under-cooked pink pork chop that’s not safe for eating. We wouldn’t want to eat overcooked pork chops that are tough, dry, and flavorless. The best way to check the doneness of pork chops is by using a meat thermometer and checking if its internal temperature has reached 145 degrees F then letting it rest for 3 minutes. This way, we safely cook them and prevent them from overcooking.

How long does it take to cook boneless pork chops?

Compared to bone-in chops, boneless ones cook faster. You can cook boneless pork chops that are 1-inch thick for 20 to 22 minutes at 350 degrees F. Remember to still check its internal temperature and make sure it reaches 145 degrees F, then let it rest for 3 minutes before serving.
