Southern Fried Pork Chops
* 2 lbs Pork Chops (center and thin cut)
* 2 Cups flour
* 1 1/2 Cups Milk OR Buttermilk
* 2 Eggs
* 1 Tablespoon salt
* 1 Teaspoon black pepper
This is a simple recipe to batter and fry pork chops. A recipe handed down for generations by my family. I think that all people in the South know this one but just in case, here's what you need to do:
To prepare your batter: Beat 2 eggs and mix into the milk for the wet part of your batter. For the dry part of your batter, mix the flour, salt, and pepper together. Your Prep station should look something like the photo below.
Dip the chops into the milk mixture and then into the flour mixture. Then do it again. Doing this twice gives you a nice thick crisp bite on the chops. Here are my chops all battered up and ready for the grease.
Heat your oil in a large skillet with a lid to medium high (about a 7), about 1/2 inch deep in the pan, until ready to add chops. Add chops and cook for approximately 7-10 minutes on each side. The thicker the meat, the longer you fry. Cook until golden brown and they no longer have and pink. Check the thickest part to ensure done. Should like like the photo below.
This is the same batter recipe I use for everything that I am frying. Super good way to fry squash and zucchini. AND CHICKEN!
