Today with Sunday Supper it is all about Easy Pork Chops recipes. Pork chops are one of my favorite weeknight dinners because they can be quickly cooked in about any way you can think of.

There are basically 5 kinds of pork chops, the shoulder chop, the rib chop, the loin cut, the boneless cut and sirloin cut. Depending on the cut of meat you have will depend on the cooking method. All pork should be cooked to 145 – 160 degrees and benefits from a short rest before serving.

The shoulder chop has tons of flavor but is the highest when it comes to bone and gristle. It benefits best by braising it so you can cook it for longer periods of time than the others.

The rib chop or center cut pork chop is cut from the center loin and benefits best with quick cooking or grilling. The rib chop does not have a tenderloin piece in it.

The loin chop may contain some of the tenderloin meat. It also benefits best with quick cooking and grilling.

The boneless cut is cut from the loin and has little fat or connective tissue. It is best cooked quickly.

The sirloin chop is one of my favorites. It is best braised or a long slow cooking cooking process such as stews and soups. These chops benefit greatly from a brining process.

Pork Chop Cooking Tips

Thicker is better when it comes to pork chops. Ideally you want them to be 1 1/2 inches thick.

Brining will help keep the meat moist and adds lots of flavor.

Bone in chops are my choice because the bones add flavor to the meat and also help in the cooking process.

Don’t overcook them!
