Basic Pan-Fried Thin Pork Chops (No Egg)

This a great pan- sear pork chop made with no egg mixture. Most times you dip in the egg and then dredge. We needed one without egg and this fits the bill. It is geared to be a how to for the newer cook. Being a basic recipe it can be altered to suit anyone's taste. I feed the kids these chops made this way and they gobble them up-no convincing needed. Enjoy! ChefDLH

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a large shallow bowl. Dredge each pork chop into the flour mixture to coat evenly. Shake off excess flour.
  2. (if your pork chops are a little dry, rinse and shake off then dredge no egg needed).
  3. Place oil in a large, heavy skillet and heat over high. When hot, add chops to skillet and cook 1 minute each side, until browned and crisp, working in batches as to not overcrowd the pan. Makes a great pan-sear.
  4. Drain on paper towels and serve.

These were great! We don't eat pork chops much, but when we do, I will be sure to use this recipe again. Next time, I might decrease the flour (I had a bit left over) and I do think I would increase the lemon pepper (for personal taste preference), but honestly, the recipe was great just as written. I served with fried cabbage and cornbread stuffing. My picky 8yo gobbled up the pork and asked for seconds (quelle surprise!) Thank you for posting.

I love simple and good and this recipe was both. I followed the recipe as written other then I only used a teaspoon of pepper. my chops were thin but not paper thin so mine took about ten minutes on each side to get done to our liking. My husband raved about these so they will be made more often.
