Seriously folks, I thought moist pork chops were a myth... until I found this recipe! Cornstarch added to the flour coating is the trick to keeping these puppies moist and tender. This is a recipe from Emeril Lagasse.

Wow! I'm impressed and I was only looking for something simple and different than how I usually cook chops. The flavor is so amazing for so few seasonings, which is where I've gotten off track with cooking lately. Next time I will definitely use thicker chops and vegetable oil (not veg, EVO, safflower and mystery mix....) and use my induction instead of my failing electric range top and they will be as pretty as yours! Thank you SO much for making my night!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 pork chops (boneless or bone-in, whatever floats your boat)

  • 14 cup cornstarch


  1. Season the chops on both sides with 2 tablespoons of the creole seasoning.
  2. Combine the flour, cornstarch and remaining tablespoon of creole seasoning in a shallow bowl. Dredge the pork chops in the flour mixture.
