Who doesn’t like fried food?? It is my weakness in life, I try to not love it so much but I can’t help it…that said, here is my fried pork chop recipe!
6 boneless pork chops
¼ cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
½ tsp celery salt
½ cup water
½ cup additional flour for the gravy
5 cups milk give or take (its just going to depend on how much gravy you want and how big your skillet it)
oil for frying
Get out your pork chops and a tenderizing hammer and beat them to an inch of their life….ok that’s slightly an exaggeration, you don’t want to turn them to mush you just want to tenderize. Get a bowl and crack your egg and add the water then whisk together. In a separate bowl mix your cornmeal, flour, pepper, garlic, and onion powder, and last but not least the celery salt. Coat your pork in that mixture, then the egg, then back to the flour and cornmeal. Set aside. Get a big enough skillet that you can also make gravy in, so basically just a deep one. Put enough oil to cover the bottom and at least half way up your meat. Heat your oil and coat your meat one more time in the cornmeal and flour and add to your skillet, do not turn multiple times, just turn over once when you start to see the bottom edges get brown then that means it will be time to flip! Cook on both sides until golden brown and set aside.
Take a handful of paper towel and wipe the majority of the cooking oil out, try and leave some of the tasty little bits. Turn your skillet on medium heat sprinkle your flour in the bottom of your skillet with a little bit of milk and brown up the flour a little. Now add the rest of your flour and stir together, start pouring in your milk slowly while stirring so you don’t get clumps of flour. I use a whisk to stir so you can break apart clumps if you come across any, stir frequently. Season your gravy with the same spices you used in your breading plus regular salt, just add a little at a time until it tastes good. I know that’s not the most useful directions but honestly, it can vary so much if I tell you exact measurement it won’t be right. Keep stirring and cooking until your gravy thickens and keep tasting it. Once your gravy is done serve with mashed potatoes and enjoy the calories!!
REMEMBER TO TASTE AS YOU MAKE!
