Pan Fried Pork Chop RecipeCourse: PorkDifficulty: Easy
Pan fried pork chops can be cooked either bone-in or -out. This is typically a personal preference. With bone-in pork chops, you may find that they take a little bit longer to cook, but will give you a nice crispy sear on your pork chop along with a richer meat flavor. There are also many different ways in which you can season your pork chop before frying it, but just a little bit of salt and pepper will go a long way when it comes to cooking a truly delicious pork chop recipe.
Prepare this dish regularly for the family or for any special occasion. Your guests are sure to be impressed with the flavor and will be asking for your recipe to take home with them.
8 Pork Chops (bone-in or boneless)
1 Cup of All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Pepper
1 Tbsp. Butter
- Begin by patting both sides of your pork chops dry with a paper towel. You will then want to season each side of the pork chop with some salt and pepper to taste. Just a little bit of this seasoning will go a long way. Place the pork chops to the side while you prepare the rest of your seasoning.
- Mix together the all-purpose flour and some cayenne pepper. Add more for additional flavoring.
- Dip the pork chops into the flour seasoning mixture to ensure that each side is covered completely. Place pork chops back onto a plate while you wait for your pan to heat.
- Heat canola oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter to the pan and wait for it to melt.
- Once melted and the oil is hot, add the pork chops to the pan. Depending on the size of your pan, you may only be able to cook a few chops at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes on the first side and then flip, cooking 2 minutes on the other side or until there is no pink juice left and the chops are cooked all the way through.
- Complete these steps with your remaining pork chops. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes or a different side of your choice for a complete, delicious meal.
