Pan Fried Pork Chops

Please Share Y'all!

In this post I am sharing how to prepare Southern Pan Fried Pork Chops.
 
Y’all will love these easy Pan Fried Pork Chops. In the summer months I do grill quite a bit more, so us southerners don’t fry everything all of the time.
 
Let’s face it though – Fried Food is Southern and it is good. Fried Pork Chops are delicious.
 
I’ll be the first to confess that when the world started changing faster than any of us could imagine in 2020, I turned to making comfort foods.
 
I prepared all of the favorite meals that my family loves. That included more fried stuff than we might usually eat. It provided us what we needed to get through the first several months of the year.
 
Let me share how I make my pan fried pork chops. Chances are that you do it pretty similar.
 
Ingredients
 
  • 4-6 Bone In or Boneless Pork Chops 
  • 2 c all purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 c Buttermilk
  • 2 tsp Water
  • Vegetable Oil for frying
 
In one bowl combine flour, salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder.
 
In another bowl beat the egg, water and buttermilk together. The water just helps ensure the wet mixture is not too thick.
 
In a skillet heat enough oil for frying over medium heat.
 
Take each pork chop and dredge in the flour mixture, then dip in the wet mixture, then back to the flour mixture.
 
Add the pork chops to the heated oil and until golden brown on each side. Cooking time may vary according to the thickness of the pork chops.
