Fried Pork Chops
But I am still cooking. Well, mostly. I haven't cooked dinner for the last two nights but that is because I have some other food projects going on.
However, the other night hubby was out of town, and I still cooked a real meal.
I think that should count for something...a gold star or a pat on the back at least.
Fried pork chops and roasted potatoes, rolls...
I fry chicken on occasion but haven't fried pork much.
This week that changed.
I am pretty sure I went up like five notches in my oldest child's eyes...fried pork. He was smiling from ear to ear.
This is the recipe I followed...
Note that the original author is cooking like 14 pork chops.
I cut that about in half.
Unfortunately I forgot to cut the rest of the recipe in half.
Not a big deal but I wasted some ingredients.
So here is my recipe for 6 or 7 pork chops...
6 or 7 thin boneless pork chops
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (I used a homemade version)
3/4 to 1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 Tbsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper (I used freshly ground peppercorns)
About 1 cup oil
Heat oil over medium high heat in a skillet.
Prepare egg wash by stirring eggs and Worcestershire sauce in a shallow bowl.
In another bowl, mix the flour and seasonings.
Dip pork chops in egg wash then coat both sides with flour mixture.
Place in skillet (do not crowd) and cook for 3-5 minutes on one side until it begins to brown. Flip over and cook for another 3-5 minutes until gold brown. You don't want to mess with them much; you will lose the coating. And of course, the coating is the good stuff.
Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.
Obviously, this is not something you want to eat frequently nor is it healthy.
But once in a while, it is a treat...
