Buttermilk Pork Chops

Pork Chops

Found this goodie in the July 2009 issue of Food and Wine Magazine.

Pork can be very frustrating to cook. As with most other meats, if underdone, one risks becoming ill. If overdone, pork becomes a dry, chewy, piece of meat. By using buttermilk as a soaking mechanism in this recipe, it is easy to maintain a juicy flavor. 

This serves four.

**Allow 4 hours for soaking.**


4 1-inch thick pork rib chops

1 quart buttermilk

Olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste


In a deep dish, cover pork chops with buttermilk and soak, refrigerated and covered, for 4 hours. Pork Chops
