      MY favorite? Since I love sour things, first I brown them, then braised with sauerkraut, apples and onions...I'm having pork chops tonight also, but without bone so I'm breading them and baking them in the oven, with a sweet potato something or other, and fresh grilled corn off the cob and grilled red peppers and jalapenos.

      1. re: chef chicklet

        Ever pair pork chops with a balsamic vinegar reduction that's spiked with some wasabi (or horseradish) powder and then tempered with a bit of brown sugar? Good stuff.

    2. Over wood coals.........

      1. I like them grilled or pan seared and finished in the oven if they are thick and grilling season has passed .

        1. baked after being wrapped in bacon

          1. I'm from the south. The only way is breaded and fried with mashed potatoes and white gravy. I do brine them first.

              That sounds Texan....not Southern! Southern would be along the lines of floured and fried... with brown gravy and rice....Or maybe with a baked sweet tator, and bowl of Greens & Roots with a slab of buttered cornbread! ;)

                Texas is the South! (faces the Alamo and crosses heart) ;-)

                Forgive him Colonel Travis... for he knows not what he says...

                  Southern *Only* in Geographical terms.....Certainly not culturally nor gastronomically.

                  You must have missed the Southern Convention of Arts and Letters where it was decided anything west of the Sabine was not part of the South...It was an unanimous vote! Texas is Texas....Be proud of it. :))

                    East Texas is the 'south'. West Texas is the southwest and the rest of Texas is Texas.

                    I have been making pork chops with a sweet whiskey glaze I got from Cook's Illustrated. This recipe looks about the same:

                      Holy mackerel. Those sound great. Saving that one.

                        Don't tell me you missed the Convention too!! ~~News must travel slow!! ~~~ It's ALL Texas.. Nothing Southern about it....Well I guess it is South of Oklahoma. :)

                        1. re: Uncle Bob

                          Are you saying 30 miles west of Shreveport is not the south?

                          1. re: John E.

                            Yes.....and Shreveport is getting "iffy" as of late.....:)) Mostly just a bunch of "used to be" and "wannabes" .... Southerners are trying to cede the area to Texas for a reasonable price...or heck....just give to Arkansas .:))

                2. re: Hank Hanover

                  Smothered, with onions and garlic and served over rice. Very southern.
