Best Fiery Pork Chops; 2008. For such a seemingly simple dish, pork chops often end up overcooked, dry, choky, tough. But there's no need to perform the Heimlich at Chris Raimo's traditional Italian restaurant, to which diners flock for its thick, perfectly broiled, absurdly tender, cut-'em-with-a-fork, bone-in chops. Order them plain, or with sweet peppers, or, not for the faint of heart, with hot vinegar peppers, our favorite. The combination of choice, juicy pork and spicy, tangy peppers create an explosion of flavors. I have an independent butcher who handpicks everything for me, says Raimo. If it's not right, we don't use it.
