How to Make Juicy Pork Chops – Every Time!

We love pork, and as a protein we can eat it often even during the Elimination phase. We think you are going to love these Juicy Pork Chops with Rhubarb Chutney, which can be made in less than 15 minutes.

They are simply seasoned with salt, pepper and sage and sautéed in Garlic-Infused Oil. I have deliberately left out specific amounts for most of the ingredients as this recipe can function as a teaching recipe – helping you learn how to cook from scratch, using your taste buds.

Choose Thicker Pork Chops

Pork chops get a bad rap; our opinion is that this is because they are usually overcooked. And we all want Juicy Pork Chops!

One problem is that pork chops are often sold in very thin pieces and it is near to impossible to cook these to a tender result. Our suggestion is to choose pork chops that are at least 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick.

Cooking Time

Then, when cooking, do not overcook them. If you want to use an instant read thermometer you can check them. They only need to reach 145°F/63°C.

This means you can pull them off the heat a little before then, as they will continue to rise in temperature while they sit.

You should always rest your meat before serving as the juices will redistribute and you will have a better piece of meat.

The National Pork Board recommends cooking chops, roasts, loins, and tenderloin to an internal temperature of 145° F, followed by a three-minute rest.
