Ahhhh. Home-cooked meals. Enticing aromas. Joyful smiles at the dinner table. These are two of my favorite things about cooking. Both are ensured with a hearty meat and potatoes meal. Perfect this time of year.

And with school starting, everyone’s in a rush.  Activities abound. We need a stick-to-your-ribs dinner to keep my family going. Yet busy schedules demand quick meals. What better than a southern fried staple to bring your family together?

 

For Pan Fried Pork Chops you will need…Pan Fried Pork Chops
6 to 8 bone-in pork chops
1 C flour
1/3 C grapeseed oil
1/4 C butter, salted
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley

Pan frying is super quick and it creates a crisp that can’t be replicated in a deep fryer or oven. Done right you can have a full meal on the table in 30 minutes or less.

First combine the flour and other dry ingredients in a shallow dish.

Heat your pan with the oil and butter over medium high heat before you start breading the pork. You will know it is ready once all of the butter is melted and the oil mixture starts to clear. I use grapeseed oil because it has a higher smoke point and in my opinion a better flavor.

Bread two to three pork chops on all sides and place in the pan to fry.

Let cook for two minutes per side depending on the thickness. The key is to get thin chops so they will be cooked through quickly without burning the outside.

Place the finished pork chops on a lined pan to remove excess grease and repeat until all of the chops are cooked.
