This makes for a really simple and fast meal, also it doesn’t take to many ingredients which comes in handy in times like these that grocery stores are still struggling to keep up on meat supply. I was going to make breaded pork chops one night then realized I didn’t have any eggs but there is still a way to make a crispy chop.
Boneless pork chops (you can totally use bone-in I just didn’t have any, they don’t dry out as easily and or normally cheaper so really that is the way I would go normally)
Cup of flour
Seasoned salt (regular salt will be just fine too)
Take a meat tenderizing mallet and take our your frustrations!! Sprinkle all of your seasonings onto your chops, I use quite a bit of seasoning, mostly pepper. Pat down and flip the chops and do the same on the other side. Let them sit for a few minutes if you look closely the salt draws the water out of the chops and you will see a little bit of a glisten.
Once this happens put your flour into a bowl and dredge your chops in it. Put enough oil in your pan to cover the bottom and heat it up. Sprinkle a little flour into the pan if it starts to sizzle then it’s ready, pat a little more flour on your chops, and add them to your pan. Flip them over when you start to see the bottom get a little crispy and cook on the other side. Be careful not to overcook them because they can get a little dried out.
I like to serve with mashed potatoes and gravy….lots of gravy and most of the time we just use instant mashed potatoes, and I jazz them up a little (I have a recipe for that listed in an earlier post). Also, I highly recommend using gravy that is in a package (the kind you just add water to and heat) and not in a jar, you can control the taste better with the packages and they are normally 80¢-$1.00 for a package.
REMEMBER TO TASTE AS YOU MAKE!
