DIRECTIONS

  • Instructions for Pork Chops:
  • In a large skillet add the oil, start to preheat oil on medium heat.
  • Line a plate with paper towels to drain the pork chops once they come out of the pan.
  • Combine flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and MSG in a large bowl with lid. Stir to mix well.
  • Crack eggs in a rectangle bowl and beat eggs well.
  • Add the pork chops to flour mixture bowl and place lid on bowl. Shake the bowl vigorously to coat the pork chops.
  • Shake off excess flour from each pork chop and set aside on plate.
  • Dip each side of pork chop in egg and place in flour mixture bowl. Do this with the rest of the pork chops. Place lid on bowl and shake vigorously to evenly coat the pork chops.
  • Raise heat for oil to medium high.
  • Carefully place pork chops in the oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Using a fork, carefully flip pork chops over and fry for another 2-3 minutes. The coating should be a nice golden brown color.
  • Placed cooked pork chops on plate with paper towels to absorb the oil. Fry the rest of the pork chops the same way. Turn off heat when done.
  • Milk Gravy Instructions:
  • Carefully pour out all the oil into an oil jar or into a heat safe bowl to throw away the oil after it has cooled.
  • Wipe the sides of the skillet to remove any oil that has dripped down the sides.
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of the oil used to cook the pork chops into the same skillet.
  • Turn heat on medium high heat.
  • Add the 1/4 cup of flour and mix with the oil. Mix constantly until the flour turns a golden brown.
  • Add the 2 cups of milk and stir constantly. The gravy will start to thicken.
  • Add the 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper. Remove from heat and place gravy in a bowl. Serve with mashed potatoes.
  • Gravy for Rice Instructions:
  • Empty 2 packages of pork gravy mix into a medium saucepan.
  • Add 1 3/4 cups of water and whisk well until all the lumps are gone.
  • Turn heat on high and whisk constantly until the gravy begins to boil.
  • After it starts to boil, whisk for another 1-2 minutes. The gravy should now be thick. Remove from heat and turn off stove.
  • Place gravy into a bowl and serve over pork chops and cooked rice.
