Crunchy Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops

Although I’m a fan of pork chops because they are a relatively lean cut of meat, there’s always a chance they’ll come out dry, tough and tasteless. A chewy pork chop is often a telltale sign of overcooking, no matter how you cook them, and undercooked pork is never the best idea. That’s why we suggest using an instant-read thermometer and cooking chops to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.


If your goal is well-cooked, fork-tender, flavorful pork chops here are a few tips and our latest favorite recipe.


Crunchy Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops uses the natural ingredients in Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard to reduce moisture loss through the cooking process and help produce a rich, juicy, full-bodied flavor. To help insure a moist finished product, it’s a good idea to brine the meat, even for as little as half an hour, let it come to room temperature before cooking, and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

Take a little care, and these may be the best pork chops you ever tried.

Crunchy Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops

Bee prepared for winter

In November in the apiary, we add protective gear to our hives to reduce the impact of ice, snow, and cold winds while the bees cluster tightly inside to stay warm. The worker bees vibrate their bodies to generate heat. The queen is near the center of the cluster where the temperature can reach 90-100 degrees F. and the cluster expands or contracts depending on the outside temperatures.

It gets cold in Nebraska — well below freezing — but with a little help from us, we expect to find happy, healthy bees in the spring.
