Liquid coming out of frozen pork chops?
Hi, I just cooked a couple of frozen pork chops, and quite a substantial amount of liquid came out of them during cooking. The liquid is clear/red and turns white on hitting the hot pan, so I assume it is juice of some sort, but why is there so much of it? At least 2 tbsp for 2 rather small pork chops.
completely normal -- may mean that they were brined/injected with a salt solution during processing.
Look at the package to see what it says -- it should say something along the line of "up to 10% salt solution" -- different manufacturers have different verbage.
And do remember that this means that you're paying for 10% water, basically.....
