    Any tips on how to cook pork chops so that they are tender and moist, and not rough?

      Another way to make pork chops tender and moist is to brine it. Basic brine solution is for every 1 litre water, dissolve 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup kosher salt. You can also add some aromatics such as thyme, garlic and whole pepper. Normal brine time is 8 to 12 hrs and no longer than that. Rinse the chops well after the brining and pat really dry. Then sear both side in a hot slightly oiled pan. Note that you dont need to season the pork chops because the salt in the brine wouldve seasoned it already. Make sure you dont overcook the chops.
