Pork Chops

Pork chops are easy to cook and can be prepared in many different ways. They are easy to cut, easy to chew, and easy on the budget for a family of 5 or 6 people. Pork chops have little fat content so they’re low in calories but high in protein which makes them good for weight watchers too! You can season the pork chops with just salt and pepper or add some onion powder or garlic powder if you prefer. Some other recipes might call for adding sugar before cooking it but this is not considered best practice by chefs because it will caramelize while cooking giving an off-taste that’s bitter.

The most popular way to prepare pork chops is frying them using vegetable oil until browned on both sides and then covering the pan and cooking it on medium heat until tender. Another easy way to prepare pork chops is baking, broiling or grilling them. Baking the pork chops should be done at a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes depending on how thick your cut is. Grilling low fat meat like chicken and turkey breasts are easy, especially if you have a George Foreman Grill. If you are using an oven to grill your meat, set the oven to broil on high and then place the meat on the top wire rack.
