Frequently Asked Questions

What Other Side Dishes Go with Honey Mustard Pork Chops?

Important Pork Chop Tip

For the best results, remove the pork chops from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before cooking. Allowing the meat to reach room temperature ensures even heating in the pan and results in perfectly cooked pork chops.

How Do I Know When My Pork Chops Are Done?

To ensure safe consumption, we recommend using a meat thermometer. Insert it into the thickest part of the meat, avoiding any bones. Medium-well pork chops should reach a temperature of 155-160 degrees Fahrenheit, while well-done pork chops should reach 160 degrees.

Should I Pat Dry Pork Chops?

Absolutely! Patting dry your pork chops before cooking is a crucial step. Moisture on the chops can hinder the formation of a deep, golden-brown crust, resulting in a pale grey exterior. Just grab some paper towels and pat them as dry as possible right before searing them in a hot skillet.
