My mother made these growing ups and I prefer them to the thicker bone-in chops. These are easy, fast, crunchy and go great with mashed potatoes, southern green beans and biscuits.
- 4 breakfast pork chops (the very thin ones)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 cup milk, warmed
- oil (for frying)
- Trim strip of fat from outside edge of chops, this feeds 2-4 people, depending on how much you like meat.
- Pound chops slightly if needed.
- Preheat oil in frying pan (you don't need much since these are thin chops).
- Beat eggs in a bowl.
- Add 3/4 cup of the flour to a pie pan. Mix in salt and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder.
- Dip chops in egg, then dredge in flour.
- Fry on each side until they turn a rich brown color.
- If you'd like add additional salt and pepper while they're frying.
- Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.
- For Gravy:.
- Remove all but 1 or 1 1/2 T. of grease from the pan (leave all the crunchy pieces too, those add great flavor).
- Add about 1/4 cup of flour and stir with whisk (add more 1 T. at a time as needed to absorb grease), keep heat on medium. Allow the flour to brown slightly (usually takes just a minute).
- Add warmed milk 1/2 cup at a time while whisking viogourously to avoid lumps. So this until proper consistency is reached.
- Add more salt, pepper a garlic powder to gravy as desired.
These were so easy and great-tasting! I made them tonight, with Blackeyed Pea's Baked Squash (#45437) and mashed potatoes...talk about a real Southern meal, all starches! You just gotta love anything chicken-fried, and covered with gravy, and we did! One note: I ended up with quite a bit of flour coating left over (and I coated 6 chops); I think 1/2 cup would probably have been enough. Thanks!
Fast, easy, and delicious! I love pork chops for Sunday breakfast. They're a nice change from bacon or sausage. We ate these little beauties on biscuits sided with some stone ground cheesy grits. Kept us going all day. Thanks for posting this!
