Pork Chops?


Recommended Posts

Hey! My grocery store just had a ridiculous sale on pork chops, so naturally I bought way too many and stuck some in the freezer. Any ideas on how to cook them? I've been cooking them with olive oil, thyme, and sometimes ginger but would love to change it up.

Should I slice them up and not eat them as "chops"?

I'm mostly looking for recipes that I can scale to 1 person, and ideally can cook on the stove-top (I have a tiny apartment and try not to heat up the oven too much). However, I guess I can turn the oven on to cook a lot at once and just go hog-wild that week :D (sorry bad joke)

So, any ideas? Thanks!

Wowwww-pork overload haha thank you so much!

I notice a lot of the recipes use different cuts of pork. I was wondering if cutting up pork chops would be the same? Does the fat content/textures/anything else change substantially?

For instance, I have no idea how to make sausage but don't think chops would be the right part of the pig to make them from. Also, a lot of recipes I found were pork shoulder or something like that, do you think the chops would dry out way too much if I tried to cook them carnitas style or something?

Nothing fancy here, but I do a seasoned salt rub and basically fry them in coconut oil. The rub makes a nice crust, so I feel like it's a splurge even though it isn't!

I did this in coconut oil with creole mustard for one - it was great!

And thanks Tom, I didn't really sort through and look at the chops recipes but that list has me heading back to the store today to branch out (something I rarely do) and try to figure out what other cuts of a pig actually are!
