Photos of perfectly cooked porkchops are seriously drool-worthy. With their golden-brown exterior and perfectly seasoned crust, to many they can seem unobtainable. But why is that? Pork is just pork and it shouldn't be that complicated. The problem with cooking the perfect chop is that there are so many bad ones out there that they suddenly seem daunting.
Well they're not, and this quick 30-minute meal is here to prove it!
Pork chops aren't like pizza — where even bad pizza is still good pizza. Pork chops that are overcooked or under-seasoned aren't especially awesome. This recipe (from What's in the Pan?) helps walk you through some of the pork-chop pitfalls one might encounter.
From little things like starting with room-temperature meat so you get an even cook or using thicker chops to ensure success, all the notations are included in this quick 30-minute recipe that has a tasty wine sauce to go with it. What's that? You're not a wine drinker? No worries, there are multiple substitutes at the end of the recipe to cover exactly that.
If you've been pork chop–phobic, then this is the recipe to cut your chops on (see what I did there?) and whip up a delicious meal that the entire family will chow down on.
