Cooking Pork Chops in a Convection Oven

By maryann 1

I need to prepare 170 pork chops in a convection oven. Can anyone help me? I tried four, 1 inch thick chops, at 325 degrees for 25 minutes and they were hard and dry. Is there some way to cook them with a marinade or something? Thanks.

Convection: speed cooks using dry air heat.

Always cover with foil, small holes for steam release, and yes a marinade will help, and so will basting.

Marinade depends on what you like: Italian dressing, Garlic powder (Not Salt it is a drying agent and should be used in last minutes of cooking), Pineapple juice and cloves, or you can use any number of Mrs. Dash, which is sodium free.

We like the "pork" Shake n bake.It says bake only 15 minutes, I just have a regular oven. I don't know about the Convection Ovens. Be sure to read the "related links" at the right side of this page for more information. Good Luck. GG Vi

Use an oven thermometer so that the cooking goes on only to the point of doneness, and they will be nice. Marinade if you want, but overcooking must be prevented.

I flour and brown them in a small amount of oil in a skillet, than put them into a shallow pan with a small amount of water, cover TIGHTLY with foil, and convect bake at 350 for between 30 minutes and an hour depending on the thickness of the chops. Believe me, they'll come out fork tender and juicy, and you'll have a little bit of thin but flavorful gravy in the bottom of the pan. (I use a slice of stale bread to sop up and remove the fat or oil that collects on top of the pan drippings.)
