How to Cook Ranch Pork Chops
Pork Chops are relatively simple to cook, but arming yourself with a few basic tips will ensure your success:
Starting with a room-temperature chop is a great way to ensure that they cook perfectly. You can leave them on the counter for 30 minutes (up to 2 hours) to ensure that the chop is not cold throughout.
It is important to make sure that your pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Using a meat thermometer is a great idea when cooking with pork as you do not want to overcook it. Overcooked pork chops are tough and dry.
Another thing to consider when cooking pork chops is the cut of meat you choose. This recipe uses boneless but can also work well with bone-in chops. A bone-in chop can provide substantial flavor as well as cooking more evenly. When testing the meat temperature just be sure to not touch the thermometer to the bone to ensure an accurate reading.
Remember to let your chops rest for a few minutes before serving! You want to make sure all of that beautiful moisture and flavor stays inside your perfectly cooked pork chops.
