This recipe is foolproof. The pork chops turn out VERY tender. I have tried many other recipes for pork chops in the oven, and I always go back to this tried and true recipe of mine. My husband eats about 3 or 4 chops every time I make it. He also makes sure to tell me to make enough for leftovers. Make sure to buy pork chops with the bone. The bones add more flavor, and the meat is more moist. I would also suggest to NOT buy "thin" cut pork chops. Enjoy!!
