I’ve had 30+ years of married life perfecting the art of fried pork chops. I have tried just about every combination of spices and wet ingredients and have finally found the PERFECT fried pork chop. The unlikely ingredient……honey! Also, you can use boneless pork chops but I think the “bone in” is best because it renders that little bit of extra “fat”. This recipe is so worth a try if you want a tried and true, no fail pork chop your family will ask for again and again.
-4 boneless or bone in pork chop
-2 tsp of pepper ( I love pepper! – even more than salt)
-1 tsp salt
-1 cup flour
-1/2 cup HONEY
-1/2 cup of canola oil
-2 tsp butter
-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
-1/2 tsp smoked paprika
-1 cup buttermilk
-Combine your flour, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne and mix well
-Set up your dredging station with 4 trays: 2 trays with 1/2 cup of flour mixture in each, 1 tray with buttermilk, 1 tray with honey
-Heat your canola oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
-Dredge each pork chop in this order: Buttermilk, flour, honey, flour
-Place the chops in the preheated skillet and cook for about 3 minutes per side. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
Delicious and simple!
