This Is The Secret To A 15-Minute Pork Chop Dinner
Try this for a fast and easy dinner.
It’s become more popular in recent years: the thick-cut pork chops. It’s at least 1-inch thick, and sometimes it can be even thicker to accommodate the desired thickness of the customer, where either the extra rib has been removed or the slices is cut against the ribs next to the middle rib.
But the problem with these thick-cut pork chops is the amount of time it takes to cook thoroughly. It’s usually started in the pan and then finished in the oven. It’s also usually brined so it remains juicy. All this, combined with the time the pork takes to completely cook through, can take a long time to cook.
That’s where a thinly sliced pork chop comes in to save you. The cut is actually the common cut in many butcher shops, so you won't have any trouble sourcing for these. Its redeeming quality is that it’s fast and easy to cook as well as easy to flavor, too. No brining necessary, no finishing in the oven, and best of all, no time is wasted in looking for the perfect cut when at the butcher shop.
