I know pork chops can be intimidating to cook however, I pleased to share with you a few tips and tricks. First, make sure you have a kitchen mallet. This mallet is used to tenderize your pork. Just place it on a cutting board and pound away. This will keep the pork from being tough to eat along with cooking thoroughly.

Second, always cook them in a cast iron skillet. My reason for this is the heat is more evenly distributed though you should move the chops around if you see one that is not cooking nearly as a much as another. Lastly, always cook chops like these with onion. Onion just brightens the flavor always! Unless of course your allergic then don’t cook with them!
