Fried Pork Chops Recipes Are Delicious, Nutritious and Safe When Cooked Right

I like pork chops. Fried pork chops recipes suit me perfectly. I especially enjoy the taste of browned chops. Yummmmy!

Fried pork chop recipes should be cooked thoroughly in order to destroy any possible trichinae. Cook until the pink in the center of the chops is gone. Or if you use a meat thermometer, 137° F (60 C) is the temperature that trichinae are destroyed. This is easy to reach; even rare beef is “rarely” served at less than 140° F.

Pork is highly nutritious if not overcooked. Overcooking destroys nutrients quickly.

Pork is richer in B vitamins than all other meats. One hundred grams (a normal serving) of lean, grassfed pork supplies more than a third of the minimum daily requirement of vitamin B1 and nearly a third of vitamin B2. Pork is rich in niacin, the vitamin that soothes nerves. In fact, a single serving of a fried pork chop recipe will supply three-fourths of the MDR of niacin, the "nerve-calming vitamin."
