Using stale meat

For juicy chops, choose perfectly fresh meat. Even if the product has been in the refrigerator overnight, it is no longer suitable for chops. The longer the meat lies, the more juice it loses. Also, pay attention to which part it is. For chops, tenderloin, fillet, ham, loin, or shoulder are most suitable.

Very thin slices

Never slice the meat into chops too thinly. The meat will simply dry out during frying. Feel free to cut the meat into medium-thick slices and don't worry about them not cooking.

Low in fat

It is a big mistake to cut off all the fat particles from meat. For the products to be really juicy, the meat must have enough fat.

Too much pounding

Meat for chops should be pounded well, but it is important not to overdo it. If you do it too hard, you can damage the fibers, and the dish will not taste good.

Adding salt at the beginning of cooking

While you can add a variety of spices to the pounded meat right away and marinate it for a while, you only need to add salt at the end of cooking. The reason is that it draws moisture and all the juices out of the pieces.
