Fried Pork Chops
It was a rainy, snowy weekend here in WV and we enjoyed a nice weekend at home. For the most part, it was a lazy one as you can see by Jake and Maggie’s pictures. They were all bundled up today and thoroughly enjoying the warm blankets out of the dryer. We had plans for lunch at Primanti Brothers but decided to stay home. I mentioned that we had pork chops and Thomas’ ears perked up! LOL.
There is a number of ways to make pork chops but Thomas likes them FRIED! This is one of his favorite meals and I typically do a potato or rice, veggie, and fry the pork chops in bacon grease with salt and pepper. Yes, I make a pound of bacon and then fry the pork chops in it…a recipe that was handed down from my mom and my grandmother. Today I decided to do something different. Making these pork chops involves a few more steps than plopping them into bacon grease but it is not super complicated. I got the thumbs up after the first bite and wanted to share this recipe with you. The pork chops were bone in and large and I made a side of steamed, buttered broccoli to go with them. I made a side salad with ranch dressing and we had a meal! Enjoy and let me know if you try this recipe.
Fried Pork Chops
4 bone in pork chops
1 cup of Canola Oil
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 cup corn meal
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix dry ingredients together.
Beat 1 egg in a bowl
Add dry ingredients to other bowl
Dip the pork chops in the egg and then the bread crumb mixture
Fry in oil on medium to high heat
As for the steamed broccoli, I filled the pot with broccoli florets, added 1 cup of water, 1 stick of butter, a pinch of salt and pepper and cooked under a lid until soft.
