What kind of pork chops should I use for this recipe?

I recommend using top loin boneless thin pork chops that are no more than 1/2 inch thick.  You can usually find these easily at most supermarkets.

How do I make pork chops that are juicy and tender?

The secret to making extra juicy and tender flavorful pork chops is to brine them for at least an hour or up to 4 hours.

The salt from brining helps tenderize the meat and draw in moisture, which adds a load of flavor and keeps the meat soft even after cooking

How to tell when pork chops are fully cooked?

The best foolproof way to test when pork chops are done is by using a meat thermometer and making sure it measures 145 F.  That’s it!

Of course, you could check by cutting it in half too.
