      Another great recipe from the "spice guru". And this certainly does deserve an outstanding rating because the ingredients and method transformed the really lousy cut of pork chops that I had on hand and turned them into tender, moist and edible meal. And it was delicious to boot! Thanks Bazaar for another great coating recipe. I will do this recipe again, but will use a cutlet type without the ever so present surprise that comes in a pork shoulder steak! I also think that I will finish the chop with the lid off to crisp the coating up slightly. Would this be nice in a fryer, or maybe with some corn meal added to the coating? hmmm, I may try that as well. DH thought it had a real southern flavor, even compared it slightly to the colonels own recipe (just sort of similar but not quite there). Overall, excellent, and I saved the rest for another day. . .and can't wait to try it again.
      OH, did I mention the gravy? I didn't grow up with pan gravy the way it's done in the South, but this is a nice and flavorful gravy. The bacon is mild, but a nice addition. I am inclined to try more pan style southern gravies, maybe even some of those white ones that I read and hear about. Yumm, and biscuits.

      I made this on 7/20/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner.Except for cutting the recipe in half it was made as written. I knew I wouldn't have time to tenderize the chops for 2 hours, so they were beaten into submission. Then I let them rest in milk for an hour, and procceded with putting them out of their misery in the " chair " ( electric skillet ). I have to say " They gave up their lives for a good cause ( our hungry stomachs ) Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
