Country Fried Pork Chops

Country Fried Pork Chops

Check out these Pork Rind Pork Chops – all the flavor and crunch of a fried pork chop, with no oil mess to clean up afterwards!

I made these Country Fried Pork Chops for some friends who were visiting for dinner. I felt like an absolute Southern Queen. These came out perfectly, with a delicious crispy breading complete with homestyle milk gravy. It was one of those “Mmm-mmm! Shut yo’ mouth!” kind of meals and I was proud to serve it to my family and friends.

It’s taken me a few years to learn how to make my own pan gravy. To tell you the truth, I’ve been a little gun shy about it since I made a horrific and gelatinous ball of “gravy” once. It was like something from a sic-fi movie. Since then I’ve attempted gravy a few other times, having various degrees of results. Most of the time I just use a package mix (gasp!) and go on with my life. But this time I finally made a decent pan of gravy and it was perfect with these delicious pork chops. I have Christy Jordan to thank for my success. She shares a wonderful gravy tutorial on her Chicken Fried Steak post. If you have troubles whipping up some gravy, head over to her site and take a look – she’ll show you step-by-step and you’ll be in gravy heaven before you know it.

For these Country Fried Pork Chops I use thin, boneless pork chops. They fry up faster and I don’t have to worry too much about checking the internal temperature or anything like that.

Country Fried Pork Chops

Ingredients:

(As always, please note – I cook for a family of eight, soon to be nine, and I had friends over too. So I make a lot of food and my recipes reflect that. Feel free to half this recipe for a smaller crowd.)

  • 14 Thin, boneless pork chops
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Oil for frying – about 1 to 2 cups

In a large skillet with a lid, heat oil over medium high heat.

Prepare egg wash for pork chops. In a bowl, mix eggs and Worcestershire sauce. Prepare breading: in a large bowl mix flour, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.

Dip pork chops in egg wash – then coat both sides in flour mixture.

Carefully place in hot oil and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until you can see the edges beginning to brown. Flip and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. It’s important not to mess with your chops too much. The breading falls off the more you flip it and that’s just no good.

Remove from hot oil once sufficiently browned and place on a plate with paper towels, to help pull off any excess oil.

Try not to drool all over the pork chops. These are wonderful served with whipped potatoes and homemade milk gravy, maybe a side salad or some green beans. And hot rolls if you’re really feeling hospitable.

    • Hi Joshua – there’s a link to Christy Jordan’s recipe for pan gravy in the post. She makes it so darn good, I wanted to steer y’all in the right direction for that recipe. :)

  3. Amanda how thin should the chops be? I’m thinking of chicken fried steak when I look at this but they look a bit thicker. Could you please let me know what you recommend

    • Hi Brandon :) The chops I use are generally about 1/2 inch thick. I just pick up a pack in the meat section over at Walmart labeled “thin boneless chops” and there’s generally 8-10 in the package. They’re great for frying up like this recipe, or sliced and added to stir fry – or even a tasty pork chop sandwich.

  4. Trying this tonight and the gravy recipe I myself have tried many times to make gravy and failed so I am hoping for a good outcome along with pork chops that the breading comes off of in the pan :/ wish me luck :)

  5. I made the recipe yesterday for dinner and they were oh so good!!! Thanks you so much for this recipe and I made the Gravy it was awesome. My kids loved them and wants me to make that again
