Soggy Shake N Bake

Okay,
I don't know why this happens EVERY time I make Shake N Bake pork chops. The edges are incredibly crunchy but the middle is incredibly soggy. I follow the instructions to a T. Anyone have this same problem or willing to share a solution (other than "Don't use Shake N Bake" or "Just eat the edges")? I've tried, with little success, to duplicate the recipe but have come up short.

Re: Soggy Shake N Bake

Would baking them on a rack in the pan allow the center to not be soggy?

I loves the shake and bake pork chops...nummers.

Tried it. Same results. In fact, I've tried just about everything: Foil, parchment, butter, veg. oil, rack, covered (I know...), tented, slightly hotter and cooler temp, shorter and longer cooking time, I just can't get it right.

You're right....they're delicious, but even moreso when crispity crunchity like mother nature intended.

Re: Soggy Shake N Bake

Try tenderizing the meat prior to coating. Immediately after coating, put them on the broil setting for a few minutes per side, then return to regular baking. It should seal the outside better that way.

Hope that helps/works for you.

Re: Soggy Shake N Bake

Thanks for the suggestion. I have the 2nd week of July off. I think I may devote it to developing this cooking method to perfection.....stay tuned for results.

Re: Soggy Shake N Bake

Be sure that you fully preheat your oven first. Also, check your oven temp with an oven thermometer. Electric ovens are often uneven. What kind of a baking sheet (material) are you using?

Cutting them in half sounds like the easy solution.

Re: Soggy Shake N Bake

Also, it may help to put the chops closer to/further away from the heat source. If your oven has adjustable height racks, maybe experimenting with moving the rack up and down would allow for more even crispiness.

Hungry now, gotta go.

Plus this would give you a little extra "crispity crunchity" goodness.

Mmmmmmmm crispity crunchity.
