Recipe by Not-2-Sweet
These are the tender, slow cooked, melt in your mouth pork chops that your southern grandma used to make. I cut the fattening factor by using "Enova" oil. This is comfort food at its best. I like to cut out the bone of my cooked pork chop then put it between two slices of plain soft white bread..mmmm.. heaven! This isn't actually my grandma's recipe--her recipes died with her, but this is pretty darned close!

I used garlic salt because I didn't have Lawrys. I soaked the chops overnight and they were sooo yummy. I didn't measure the flour only because I was using 3 chops. Very tasty!!
- 4 center-cut pork chops (standard cut approx 1/2 inch thick)
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- cooking oil
- seasoning salt
- black pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Sprinkle both sides of pork chops lightly with seasoning salt. I like Garlic & Pepper Seasoning salt, but Lawry's is good, so is Old Bay.
- Place chops into a ziplock bag and pour in the buttermilk. Squeeze air out of the bag before you close it, and mush it around a little to make sure that all chops are coated with the buttermilk. LeT stand in the fridge for several hours.
- In a pie plate, mix together flour, 1/8 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp seasoning salt. more or less to your taste.
- Heat oil in a large heavy frying pan to medium high heat. Oil should reach slightly less than 1/2 inch deep in the pan.
- Dip buttermilk coated chops in flour mixture making sure that it is completely coated. Repeat with all chops.
- When oil is hot, add chops and let cook uncovered for about 2 minutes. Turn down heat to medium low and let cook uncovered until bottoms are browned and red juices start to accumulate over the bones.
- Turn over with tongs, cover pan with a lid, then turn down heat slightly and let cook until browned on the bottoms.
- Transfer to a sheet of crinkled foil. Wrap foil loosely around chops and let rest for about 5 minutes.
