1/7 Photos of My Dad Swears My Sister Makes the Best Pork Chops in the World
ATM 67's Note:
My sister learned the basic flour mix from her former mother-in-law, who grew up in Carruthersville, Missouri. My sister kept hearing Emeril say how well garlic went with pork, so she added it to her seasoning mix. My dad still swears that my maternal grandmother (his former mother-in-law) made the best fried chicken ever. Born in 1919, she was the eldest daughter, and second of ten children, raised on a farm outside the town of Black Oak, Arkansas. Even after my parents divorced, Dad was occasionally invited to eat Grandmommy's fried chicken. He always relished those meals, and still talks about them today. My grandmother never told anyone, except my grandfather, her secret to breading her chicken, but she did tell my sister her trick to frying it. My sister has incorporated that method into her pork chop recipe.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Mix dry ingredients in a resealable bag (Ziplock).
- 2Rinse pork chops under running water. Toss them into a ziplock bag and shake, to coat well.
- 3In a cast iron skillet, cook chops in enough oil to come 1/2 way up the side of the chops, for example - 1 inch chops need 1/2 an inch of oil, on medium high heat for approximately 4 minutes each side, until golden brown.
- 4For the last 30 seconds of cooking the second side, increase heat to high, to “cook the grease out of it” (Grandmommy’s secret for fried chicken).
- 5Blot on paper towels before serving.
