Usually this Russian dish is made with pork tenderloin, but I have made it with chops for ease in the American kitchen on a weeknight, when you want something a little special but just don’t have the time.
The chops cook up quick, and it is important that you do not overcook them, or they will magically become shoe leather. I cooked these to 160F and they were fully cooked but still juicy inside. You could opt to cook them a little less if you are okay with pink pork (I know some of you are not) but certainly do not cook them any more.
