Pork chops are the most popular cut from pork loin. According to its origin, there is a variety of names for pork chops including loin, rib, sirloin and shoulder chops.

It is important to note that all pork chops are cooked in the same way. The cooking time, fundamentally, depends on the thickness of the cut, which ranges from 2 to 5 centimeters. It does not matter if you choose boneless chops for convenience or chops with bone for its attractive appearance – the cooking time will always be the same.

Dissolve the cornstarch in 4 tablespoons of warm water.

In a small saucepan over medium low heat mix: melted butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, dissolved cornstarch and chicken broth. Stir very well and add the seasonings: garlic powder and onion powder. Continue stirring until the sauce thickens.
