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.

Cranberry-Onion Chops
by Sharon 04/23/2013
This was really quick and easy to make and didn't taste bad at all. No rave review here but definitely something to keep in the cookbook in case you're in a crunch for time.
