Tips to the best juicy and moist pork chops ever
Allow the meat to come to room temperature before cooking. i.e. bring it out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking so it comes to room temperature. That would allow the pork to cook evenly.
Not sure your pork is properly cooked, use a meat thermometer and the internal temperature should read 145F/62C
It is tempting to serve your meat immediately after cooking but please let this honey garlic pork chop rest between 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Trust me on this, you would thank me for it.
Don’t have a grill or an oven, don’t worry as you can make this pork chops on the stove top.
