  1. Pork is easy to cook as it is a lean cut of meat. Pork chops should be purchased by the ‘sell by date’ and either prepared or frozen immediately to eliminate food borne illnesses.

    Pork should not be overcooked as it can become very dry and tough.  Pork is generally done at 160º and the juices should run a very faint pink or clear.

    There are several ways to prepare pork chops, but they do best when the moisture can be retained.

    MUSHROOM AND SWISS PORK CHOPS

    6 Extra Thick Pork Chops

    1/2 tsp. salt

    1/2 tsp. pepper

    1/4 tsp of garlic powder

    1/4 tsp onion salt

    1 -8oz package sliced Swiss cheese

    1 -4oz can sliced mushrooms, drained

    Toothpicks

    Pre heat oven to 350º. Mix seasoning to prepare a dry rub for the chops.  Slice a pocket in the side of each chop and stuff with Swiss cheese and mushrooms.  Close the chop and secure with a toothpick. Place the chops in a shallow baking dish and rub with seasoning mix.  Bake the chops at 350°for about 35 min or until done.  Prior to removing from the oven, top with an additional slice of cheese and more mushrooms until melted, if desired.

    This dish goes wonderfully with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus.

    HONEY GLAZED PORK CHOPS

    6 Bone-In Pork Chops

    1 cup of honey

    1 cup packed brown sugar

    1/3 cup soy sauce

    1/2 tsp. garlic

    1/2 tsp. ground ginger

    1 tsp. ground mustard

    Pre heat oven to 350º.  Place pork chops in a large zip top bag.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour half over the chops. Secure the bag and turn to coat.  Cover the remaining marinate and refrigerate. Place the chops in a baking dish and back at 350° for 15 minutes.  Top with remaining marinade and cover cooking on low for an additional 15 minutes or until done.

    You can also put the chops with the marinade in a Crock Pot on low for 6 hours for a ready-prepared meal after a long day. 

    Always a crowd favorite and goes over great with the kids when served with macaroni and cheese and corn on the cob.

     1 1/2 tsp. parsley

    1/2 tsp. garlic powder

    1/2 tsp. onion powder

    Aluminum foil

    Pre heat oven to 350º. Tear aluminum foil into 5×7 squares to form packets for the pork chops.  Mix dry ingredients and sprinkle half of the dry ingredients onto aluminum foil.  Place chops on foil and top with remaining dry ingredients.  Fold foil over the chop to form a sealed packet.

    Italian pork chops go great served over Fettuccine Alfredo or cheesy rice.

    Serve with roasted ranch potatoes and steamed vegetables.

    All of these recipes can be prepped the night before or cooked during the day in a Crock Pot for busy families.  Each recipe can be changed with seasonings or flavors to suit each individual family’s needs.
