I love a Thick Cut Pork Chop. Problem is they are difficult to cook when they are so thick, as you need to cook the center of the Pork Chop to the proper temperature. This usually means the outer edge of the Chop is very overcooked and dry, which eliminates the juicy flavor of the Pork Chop.
The solution to this is to cook the Pork Chops sous vide, which guarantees they will remain juicy and full of flavor from edge to edge. If you like a smokey flavor you can cold smoke them for a bit before the sous vide bath, taking them to the next level. Let me show you how easy it is.
Thick Cut Pork Chops (mine were 1.5-2 inches thick)
Seasoning of your choice (I used Grillaholics Twisted SPG Rub)
Start by seasoning the Pork Chops with the seasonings of your choice. I used Grillaholics Twisted SPG Rub. (20% discount link below.) Cold smoke the Pork Chops for around 45 minutes to an hour, flip and smoke another 45 minutes to an hour.
If you feel it is necessary apply a bit more seasoning and vacuum seal them in a bag with some fresh Rosemary. Sous vide cook at 140 degrees for 2-4 hours.
Remove and dry off very well with paper towels. Sear them for a minute or two on each side either in a frying pan, hot grill or torch. The only purpose here is to make them look more appetizing and delicious. Serve and enjoy.
