Q:

How long do you cook pork chops in the oven?

A:

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends that pork chops should be baked in an oven until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Testing with a food thermometer in several areas of the pork chop ensures that the safest temperature has been reached.

The USDA recommends that meat be allowed to rest for 3 minutes prior to a person consuming or carving it to ensure the highest quality and safety possible. Pork chops can safely be stored in the refrigerator at 40 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 5 days, or they can be stored in a freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 6 months.
