These aren’t the dry pork chops from your childhood! With the Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode and 100% steam, you’re guaranteed a tender and juicy pork chop every time. This makes it easy to make pork chops for a group. You can also modify the recipe by adding seasonings before placing in the oven, or add aromatic herbs, such as rosemary, to the pan when searing.
