Thick Cut Pork Chops

Discover the robust and hearty Thick Cut Pork Chops, affectionately dubbed 'Tommy Chops' by their fans. These monster chops are akin to a mini roast in every serving.

Each chop is a culinary masterpiece, featured prominently at several local restaurants, showcasing the exceptional quality and taste that Jake's Country Meats is known for. Raised in our sustainable, pasture-based system, these chops are not just a meal, but a statement piece on any plate, sure to impress both chefs and diners alike.


Cooking Tips:

  1. Stove-Top Searing: Start by bringing the chops to room temperature, season as desired, and sear them in a skillet with oil over medium-high heat for about 10-12 minutes per side to develop a rich crust.
  2. Oven Roasting: After searing, roast the chops in a 375°F oven for 20-30 minutes. The thickness requires a bit more time to ensure they reach an internal temperature of 145°F.
  3. Grilling: Grill these substantial chops over medium heat for 10-15 minutes per side. Rest them after grilling to lock in the moisture and flavors.

Recipe Ideas:

  1. Spiced Rub with Honey Glaze: Coat the chops in a blend of aromatic spices and finish with a honey glaze for a sweet and spicy crust.
  2. Lemon and Thyme Marinade: Marinate the chops in lemon juice, olive oil, and fresh thyme, then grill or roast for a zesty, herbaceous flavor.
  3. Balsamic and Fig Reduction: Serve the chops with a balsamic and fig reduction for a rich, tangy, and slightly sweet complement.
  4. Parmesan and Panko Crust: Bread the chops in a mixture of grated parmesan and panko breadcrumbs, then bake until the crust is crispy and golden.

Our Thick Cut Chops are a true celebration of taste and quality, epitomizing the best of Jake's Country Meats.
