    I tried braising them in chicken broth but it didnt help too much. Parts of them were much more tender though. I have the old fashioned good ones with bones and marbling, does anyone know a good heat and time for this? Ive tried lower heats for different times but I just cant seem to get it down. I know cooking them like this works somehow, argh what is the secret

    Also how much liquid do you use when braising? I put in enough so it was half way up the chop.

      Did you do it on the stovetop or the oven. I really like to just about cover them and cook em low and slow in the oven at about 325 until they just fall apart. I've done it the fast way on the stovetop but the cooking isn't as even (unless you have a really nice gas range) and they wont be as tender but will still work better than just pan fry. You don't want to boil them though, braising is a method of slow cooking

        anytime ive ever fan fried boneless lean pork chops they dry out on me. but hey im not a trained cook or anything (insert sarcasm)
        I dunno, I just never had this problem. I let them come to a room temperature, throw some fat in the pan, golden them up, flip them over and serve. But I haven't made them in while, we are down to hocks and shoulder roasts from our pig atm.

          I did them in the oven covered with aluminum foil. Maybe I didnt use enough liquid. How long does it usually take, 2 hours 3?

          Should I bother with the meat thermometer?

            we're talking about pork chops, right? 30-40 mins at 350F.
