Recipe Notes

You’ll want to choose a marbled pork chop that has some fat in it such as a sirloin chop or shoulder chop. If your chops are really large, they can be cut in half. Cooking leaner cuts for extended periods of time can result in a tough chop. Nutritional information is based on the use of 6 x 6oz pork shoulder chops and will vary based on type of pork selected.
