About the Cut: Chop

Pork chops are the most popular cut from the pork loin, which is the strip of meat that runs from the pig’s hip to shoulder. Depending on where they originate, pork chops can be found under a variety of names, including loin, rib, sirloin, top loin and blade chops.

About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

The best way to defrost pork is in the refrigerator in its wrapping. Defrosting a 1 inch chop will take 12-14 hours.

Butcher's Tips

It’s important to note that all pork chops cook the same. The length of cooking primarily depends on the thickness of the chop. Thickness can vary from ½ to 2 inches. Whether you choose chops boneless for convenience or chops with the bone attached for their attractive appearance, the cooking time is the same. Pork chops are likely the least intimidating of all pork cuts because they are so easy to prepare.

Review Title

great sauce
by anonymous 12/01/2012
I did this recipe with two bone in pork chops, was good but next time will use a smaller pan. Some of the sauce burnt on the bottom of the pan.

 Easy and great taste. family loved it. Put a few steamed vegs for a side dish and you have a great meal!

Really Easy and Yummy

 This was such an easy and tasty dish. My twins are too little to enjoy it sadly, but the rest of the family did immensely. I think it is better with more of the honey and brown sugar glaze.

 Never had trouble with pork being tender but lately-not so good-and gave up eating it. Will try this but the only thing different is the glaze?

 Thanks, Will try today.

Good and Easy

Since I can't leave anything alone, I added a bit of lite soy sauce, garlic, ground ginger and sweet hot mustard to the brown sugar and honey - yummy. Served with steamed carrots and broccoli.

I made this as something new to try with chops, with things I already had. It tasted wonderful and I've already made it twice. It was a hit for my family as well. The only change I made second time around was increased the honey and brown sugar to three tbs instead of two. I was running out of sauce on when I flipped them.
