What is a delicious recipe for making very tender pork chops. I hardly ever make chops and my son has?!
I marinate them in buttermilk before baking them in the oven. It makes the chops really tender and moist.
I recommend searing them first: put them in a very hot skillet (I use cast iron) with just a little oil for about 1 minute per side. This seals in the juices. Then put them in a baking sheet and bake at 350 for the remainder of the time (time varies depending on thickness). Take them out when they're just barely done, cover with foil or a pan lid and let them rest for 5-10 minutes to 'finish'.
This isn't really a recipe, but it sounded like what you really were looking for was a technique for juicy chops rather than specific flavorings. A simple sprinkle of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder is delicious on these; if you have good quality chops that's really all you need!
