Fried Pork Chops

Fried Pork Chops takes pork chops to another level.  The crispy breading adds more flavor and keeps the meat very tender.  I love this recipe, a family recipe I hope yours will enjoy, too.

Special meals can be remembered forever.  One special meal we have had for a family growing up is now one of my husband’s favorite meals.  He was first introduced to Fried Pork Chops after our daughter was born.  My mom spent some time with us at our house after Macie was born.  I was spoiled with laundry services and meals prepared.  Macie was born right before Christmas, so it definitely was a special time of the year. 
Macie is celebrating her 14th birthday this month. She has enjoyed showing pigs before she was old enough to join 4-H.  Each year she becomes more responsible in her swine project.  She is very interested in learning the feeding plans and monitors their health daily.  All three kids spend a lot of time in the barn and get to know their animals.

Mom made her fried pork chops and my husband was won over with this meal. 



Ingredients for Fried Pork Chops

  • 6-8 Bone in Pork Chops

How to make Fried Pork Chops

  2. Rinse and pat pork chops with a paper towel.
  3. Add flour, steak seasoning, salt and pepper to a gallon size bag.  Seal and mix all ingredients.
  4. Check the skillet, make sure the oil is hot enough to cook pork chops.
  5. Add one pork chop at a time to the mixture and coat, set aside on a plate.
  6. Cook chops 3-4 minutes on each side, checking temperature, 160 degrees.
  7. Remove from skillet and place on a clean plate.

Notes on making Fried Pork Chops

  • Use an electric skillet if you have one on hand.

If you have an electric skillet, this is the best way to make the fried pork chops, it keeps the mess off the stove.  If you don’t have one, then use a deep pan on the stove. 

We normally make 6-8 fried pork chops, they also make great leftovers.  You can dip them in BBQ or ketchup, kids do request strange things!
