7 secrets to the perfect pork chop


There are probably 1001 ways to cook pork: grilling, roasting, poaching, frying, sautéing, braising...the list is endless.

But more often than we'd like, no matter how we cook it we end up with pork that's just a little too dry. That's why we've decided to let you in on the 7 secrets to making the most perfect pork chops, every time. 

The cut

Pork that's been well-fed and left to run around freely will taste infinitely better than what you can find at the supermarket.

So spend the extra couple of bucks and head over to the butcher. Select pork chops that are a pale pink color with vibrantly white fat. Also look for fat marbling throughout the chop (an indicator of quality) because that means they'll hold out better during cooking.
