    Salt and pepper them, then brown them in a skillet with some oil. Remove the meat, then quickly saute some chopped garlic. Remove the garlic, then soften some chopped onions. Put everything back in the skillet and add about a cup and a half of of chicken broth or some other liquid like apple juice, orange juice or a mixture of one of the juices and chicken broth. Cover and let simmer on low for about an hour until the pork chops are fork tender.

    You could also stick the pork chops covered in a 350 degree oven for an hour instead of cooking on the stove top.

    place like 3-4 tblsp of olive oil in a skillet or non-stick pan. take your pork chops and sear on both sides then add salt and pepper or what ever seasonings and then cover and let simmer on med for about 25 min. check to see the rareness and then enjoy. it still has the seared look and the tenderness to the pork chop.

    I've baked the thick kind in the oven. I marinated them in Italian dressing all day, dipped them in egg and then bread crumbs, put a little butter on them and baked them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes--then turned them over and baked them for another 30 minutes on the other side. They had a good flavor and weren't tough.

    It's a good idea to marinade them first. You can make a simple marinade with

    about 1/4 c. of olive oil

    2T. of vinegar

    & 1t. lemon juice.

    Add pepper, salt & garlic (or whatever else sounds good) to taste & let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour.

    Then you can grill, broil or bake them.
