I had a friend in college with long, bushy sideburns. We called him Chops. This post is not about him.
This post is about how intimidated I was thinking about making pork chops, and (happy ending!) I now want to make them all the time. Seriously, easy.
1. Buy thin chops.
2. Crack an egg in one bowl and cover the base of a pie dish with bread crumbs. Sprinkle SPG (salt, pepper, garlic).
3. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper.
4. Cover a medium-large pan with vegetable oil and add 2-3 tablespoons butter. The butter needs to melt before you start cooking the chops.
5. Dip both sides of the chop into the egg, repeat with the bread crumb mix, and place in the pan. I did three chops at a time, so I did two batches.
6. Let the chops bubble for three minutes before using tongs to flip them over. Cook another three minutes.
7. Take them out of the pan.
Ingredients: egg, bread crumbs, pork chops, salt, pepper, garlic, vegetable oil and butter.
Time to make six pork chops: 10 minutes
I served it alongside boxed pasta salad. Hey, I still had to boil the pasta for that one!
These pork chops got a Sasha rating of four out of five wooden spoons.
