I recently decided that instead of buying steak(something I can cook very well) that I would buy pork chops. I don't know how to make them, or what i can use them for. Do any of you mylotters have any good ways to serve up some delicious pork chops?

Pork chops taste great cooked on the grill. But you have to make sure you cook them fully. uncooked pork is dangerous. pork chops, baked potato, And corn on the cob. maybe a tossed salad. ummm that makes me hungry. Now I know what I'm having for lunch. Thank you for the great discussion. Happy cookin'

I find myself getting hungry everytime i start a discussion about food, i get such great ideas. I tried the stuffed pork chops and i recommend that to anyone, and grilled will be tonights trial. I stuffed my pork chops with apples, pinapples, and some strawberries. I found it to be very tender and delicious, you should try it. My husband wants me to make it with cinnamon next time, what do you think about that?

I've never tried it that way. It sure sounds delicious though. I still have some chops left from yesterday's lunch, I think I will try it with the stuffings next. Thanx for the tip. I'll let you know how they taste!

Our family's favorite way to eat pork chops is to pan fry them, with salt and a lot of pepper. Cover them while frying to keep them from getting crisp. Put more salt and pepper on when you turn them.

You can be versatile when cooking pork chops, SilentRose. From sauteeing, to frying or baking them, you have many options. When my children were still at home I used to love preparing them stuffed (they have to be thick and butterfly them). Fruit, like apples, also enhance the flavor of pork. Why don't you check out allrecipes.com for some ideas also?

That sounds delicious, I think that it will finally get my husband to eat them. He can't stand pork chops, but I think this might persuade him to try them again. Thank you very much.

They are quite good grilled, you just have to be sure to sear them well and then move them away to the edge and close the grill lid for them to cook without drying out. They are also very good when "smothered" and cooked in the oven. Most recepies have you cover the pork chops with some cream of mushroom soup to cook. This helps keep them nice and juicey.

Pork Chops taste great thrown on a flame grill BBQ. A couple of minutes each side, doesn't take long. Add a little BBQ sauce! Maybe a little salad or chips to go with. Easy and yummy.

I bought thick pork chops from a club grocery store. I butterflied them, made stove top stuffing with raisins, stuffed the chops, used tooth picks to hold them shut. Borwned them and then cooked in a can of beef broth. Oh, they were delicious! I will be making this dish again, and again. My family raved about the chops and how good they were. I will make them the next time we have company for dinner. give them a try, I am sure you won't be disappointted.

We like to bread our pork chops with a shake n bake mix. Bake in a single layer in the oven at 450 degrees for about 10 - 15 minutes or until thoroughly done. Pour about 2 cups pf spaghetti sauce over the top and sprinkle about a cup to a cup and a half of mozzarella over each chop. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is heated through. I like to serve this over some pasta and serve with a nice salad.

You can try cooking pork chops this way : 6 large pork chops 6 potatoes, sliced 3 medium onions, sliced 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1/4 cup water Salt and pepper 1 green bell pepper, sliced Brown pork chops. Place alternating layers of pork chops, potatoes and onions in a baking dish. Season. After first layer of pork chops, potatoes and onions is in place, pour half the soup over the top. Layer again. Season. Pour the remaining soup over, then pour water over the top. Season. Bake, covered, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees F. Alternate method: Layer the same way in a crockpot. Cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours or on high heat for 3 1/2 hours.
