WHAT CUT OF PORK CHOPS SHOULD I USE FOR THIS RECIPE?
I recommend choosing a bone- in cut of pork chop. The bones release a ton of flavor, and also help the meat retain a lot of tenderness.
CAN I MAKE THIS RECIPE USING BONELESS PORK CHOPS?
ABSOLUTELY! Although I highly recommend bone-in, this recipe can definitely be made with boneless loin pork chops.
