For perfect chops every time, here are a few tips:
If you cook them on the grill, choose chops that are thick enough and well marbled.
Avoid overcooking the meat to prevent it from hardening.
There is nothing sadder than a tough overcooked pork chop.
In fact, pork is ready when it reaches a temperature of 63 ° C (145F) in its center.
Remember to let the meat rest, about 5 minutes, before serving.
This will allow you to obtain a more tender and juicy meat.
How to let the meat rest?
It’s really simple! Place the meat on a plate and cover it with aluminum foil.
Make sure not to seal the aluminium foil unless you want the cooking to continue.
