Baked Pork Chops

How do you bake pork chops without drying them out?

I dont need a recipe, just a method of baking pork chops w/out making them dry out.

There are a couple of things that you can try. First though, pork gets tough and dry when it is over-cooked. There are two basic solutions. My first choice is to cook it less. This works best with premium cuts, such as the tenderloin or chops. Brown it first and then finish in the oven. Pork can be cooked to medium (or even medium rare) and is generally safe for consumption, in the U.S. This doesn’t take long, you can use a meat thermometer for thicker cuts. This will give you a nice moist piece of meat. The second solution is to cook it a lot. This works best with lesser cuts of meat or with sauces. The technique is called braising, which you can do in the oven or on the stove top. This is done by browning and the simmering the pork for several hours, until it is fork tender. Good luck and Bon Appetite
