Golden fried and delicious pork chops for a filling weeknight meal.
  • 6 pork chops (I buy the thick ones at Costco and cut them thinner myself)
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder sprinkled on
  • 1½ cups Japanese Panko bread crumbs
  • 1½ cups Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • oil for frying (I use coconut oil cuz we loves it)
  1. Season your chops to your liking. I always use a mixture of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Divide your dry ingredients among two separate shallow bowls (or pie tins work great too) -flour in one, both bread crumbs mixed together in another.
  3. Beat egg in another bowl and add milk.
  4. Heat oil on medium heat in large, flat bottom skillet (amount should cover bottom of pan, about ¾ cup depending on pan size, but doesn't need to be deep. We aren't deep frying the things).
  5. When ready, take pork chop and dip in egg mixture, then flour mixture, then egg again, then bread crumbs.
  6. Fry in oil until brown.
  7. Flip and fry other side.
  8. Remove when cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  9. Notes: dipping in flour and double dipping in egg mixture seems to make the coating stay on better and, since that is the yummiest part, you want that on there. Also, do not over cook chops, they will be tough then and your children will eat cereal for dinner. They are also good if you cover them with gravy and sauteed mushrooms. Like, next level.
