    What's the best way to cook them? In your opinion.

    The local store deli cooks them pretty good. The best I have seen in all my travels but they only make enough for lunch goers and they're gone by early afternoon most of the time. They use the thick cuts and are breaded and tender.

    When I cook them they're always kinda tough. What's the secret?

    Spill it!

    Love a good center cut.
    On the grill, medium high, rubbed or seasoned to your liking, cooked til the juices are barely pink. Any more, for me, is too well done

    Chops are an easy thing to cook once you realize how your grill works. There is a learning curve if you are a noobie to grilling

    Grilled on a charcoal fire. Just a few minutes on each side. Enjoy.

    Don't try to get fancy. Things are all ready too complicated as they are.

    Whatever flour sticks then throw it in the frying pan.
    Some Easteners think apple sauce has something to do with it but apple sauce is a way better compliment.

    coat with your dry rub. if you don't have one, McCormick's Montreal seasoning is a good place to start. there are 2 types, both are good but maybe the "chicken" one is a better fit. throw them in a ziplock bag with a cup or so of decent white wine and let it sit for a couple hours. rotate the bag. you can grill, bake, or fry... can't lose. I usually cut up half an onion, maybe 4-5 mushrooms, 1/2 of a red/yellow pepper as a veg mix on the side... maybe add some broccoli, even carrot, cabbage or BokChoy. lightly season with the Monty & cook same method. then, whatever else for the table.... baked potato, baked bean, slaw, green salad... it varies

    Funny you should mention that, my mom always pan fried them, and always served them with apple sauce. She was from eastern...




    ...Oklahoma.

    I cook them on a gas grill with a smoker box inside, loaded with pecan wood chips.

    Or in the oven with Shake-n-Bake's pretzel coating. Yes, I'm serious.

    Fried pork chops are certainly delicious.

    However, I've always preferred to jerk pork rather than chicken. Jerk chops and ribs, turnip greens, white beans, and an ice cold red stripe.

    Damn, now I'm hungry.

    In a frying pan with sautéed onions and apples, with marjoram.

    Or on the charcoal grill. Everything is good on the grill. I’d cook oatmeal on the grill if I could figure out how to keep it from falling through into the fire.

    My mother always made delicious pork chops, breaded and pan-fried. Then at some point, she started adding cornmeal to the flour, and they were even better. Just a touch crispier and more flavorful. Yum.

    If you find yourself anywhere near Snappy Lunch in Mt Airy NC, go in there and order 2 pork chop sandwiches - if you’re alone ! Trust me.

    On that trip in 2003 we et there ^^^ and went to the Floyd General store and saw local bluegrass and had deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches - in the same week !

    my head swims at the memory...
