Frequently asked questions, answers and tips:
Here are my top 3 tips to keep thin cut pork chops from drying out:
Don't overcook: Overcooking is the main cause of dry pork chops. Thin-cut pork chops require less time to cook than thicker ones. So, make sure to cook them on high heat for a short time, just until a meat thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 145°F when inserted into the thickest part of the chop.
Brine the pork chops: Brining is a simple process of soaking meat in a saltwater solution. It helps to keep the pork chops moist and tender. To make a brine, mix ¼ cup of salt with 4 cups of water and add any desired spices. Soak the pork chops in the brine for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
Use a marinade: A marinade can also help keep the pork chops moist and tender. You can use any marinade of your choice, but one with acid (like vinegar or lemon juice) can help tenderize the meat. Marinate the pork chops for at least an hour before cooking.
