Frequently Asked Questions
How do you keep pork chops tender?
Pork chops become tough if they are overcooked. You have to remember that pork chops are lean cuts, so their cooking time is relatively shorter than other meats. Even when you take the chops out of the oven or the pan, they will continue to cook. Hence, the perfect method to keep your pork chops tender is to know when they’re done. We suggest using a probe thermometer to measure the internal temperature of the meat. Once it reaches 145 degrees F, then the meat is perfectly cooked.
