Recipe: Crispy Fried Pork Chops


Crispy fried pork chops are simple to make, and are best by adding the seasoning directly on the pork chops as well as the dredge. This recipe is using 1/2 inch thick pork chops, so they are fried nicely on medium-low heat to ensure they are cooked throughly. If you are frying thinner pork chops, keep the heat at medium-low heat so that they’re not fried too hard.  Once you’ve tried these crispy fried pork chops, check out my Savory Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Chop recipe.
