The Importance of Proper Cooking:

Unlike steak, which can be enjoyed at various levels of doneness, pork must be cooked thoroughly to ensure it’s safe to eat.

However, this presents a challenge because even a few minutes can make the difference between moist, tender pork chops and dry and tough ones.

The Right Thickness Matters:

Before you even start cooking, consider the thickness of your pork chops. You will have better results if the pork chops are about 1.5cm thick.
