    jeniwan's Note:

    Seriously folks, I thought moist pork chops were a myth... until I found this recipe! Cornstarch added to the flour coating is the trick to keeping these puppies moist and tender. This is a recipe from Emeril Lagasse.

      I don't know what went wrong, but this didn't work for me. My hubby said they tast o k, but they sure weren't right. I used a cast iron pan, but maybe had it to hot. I will go back to my old way of cooking them.

      My chops were HUGE and thick. After frying on each side for about 5 minutes, I popped them into a warm oven to finish. The method with the corn starch must have worked, as we still had moist chops for our dinner. I paired these with To Die For Zucchini And Tomatoes !!!! and Most Delicious Garlic Cheese Bread for an easy dinner. Both recipes really complimented the creole seasoning on the chops.

      I know it's hard to believe but this recipe really works. Had 2" pork chops(which would normally turn out like an old shoe) and I followed this recipe and I couldn't believe it, they were actually tender and juicy. Must use an iron skillet though, I think the heat of which it reaches is also one of the tricks!!!
