I stopped in at one of the grocery stores near my house yesterday, and spotted some pretty lean looking center cut pork loin chops....AND they were on sale.  Although I had already made a tentative plan for this week's menu, I decided to get them and make them tonight.  I made one of my family's favorite pork dishes...Mushroom Pork Chops.  I often use pork tenderloin slices in this dish...but tonight, I used the chops. ( pp value may change if  you use pork tenderloin)  The trick to keeping pork chops tender and moist and not dry and tough, is not overcooking them. Make sure your pan is HOT, so you can get a nice sear on the chops!
