I was in the mood for fried pork chops and threw this quick and easy recipe together. The pork chops turn out juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.
- 4 pork chops, deboned, thin-cut
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1⁄4 cup plain breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried sage, dried
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme, ground, dried
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil over medium-high heat until oil begins to glisten.
- In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together egg and milk. In another wide, shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, flour, garlic powder, basil, sage, thyme, pepper and salt.
- Dredge each pork chop first in egg mixture, shaking off excess. Then dredge in bread crumb mixture, coating both sides heavily and evenly.
- Carefully lower each chop into hot oil and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until done. Coating should be golden brown and crispy.
- Remove chops to a plate covered with paper towel. Place another paper towel atop chops and carefully blot off extra oil.
- Serve and enjoy!
I made this on 4/13/11 the " Garlic Event " in the Food Photo Forum and most importantly mine and SO's dinner.:)Except for using pork cube steaks instead of the pork chops,the recipe was made as written.The cook time was " right on the money ". The recipe was good,but it didn't quite suit our personal tastes.But thank you for taking the time to post and, " Keep Smiling :) "
What a quick and easy way to have pork chops. They turned out moist and the flavor of the spices in the breading was perfect. Made for October, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap.
