I guess I'm thinking about the pork chops I buy a they tend to be fairly thin and don't take a long time too cook at all. Although I'm use to searing on top of the stove or just baking in the oven and not braising. I have had many dinners get delayed because potatoes and or carrots have taking soooo long to cook in the oven. Once, again usually baking and not braising. So that is why my line of thinking is to be careful about the pork chops being done but the potatoes not quite being done yet. Perhaps braising is different.
