I’m late posting this because we had our walk-through on our house to sign off it passed our inspection so we can close tomorrow. I’m packing up the rest of my kitchen today so we might have to live off leftovers until Friday. I won’t make you suffer that though so here’s a nice and easy pork chop recipe to tie you over!
Chicken Fried Pork Chops–via Rock Recipes
Yield 4-6 servings From Start to Finish: 30mins
6 center loin pork chops, well trimmed
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp ground sage
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 tbsp water
Honey Garlic Sauce:
In a medium saucepan add
2 tbsp olive oil
3 – 4 cloves minced garlic
Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic but do not let it brown. Add:
1 cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper
Simmer together for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Watch this carefully as it simmers because it can foam up over the pot very easily.
1) Sift flour, salt, pepper, ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage, paprika, and cayenne.
2) Make an egg wash by whisking together eggs and water.
3) Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, then dip the chops in the flour and spice mixture. Dip the chop into the eggwash and then a final time into the flour and spice mix, pressing the mix into the chop to get good contact.
4) Heat a skillet on the stove with about a half inch of canola oil covering the bottom. You will want to carefully regulate the temperature here so that the chops do not brown too quickly on the outside before they are fully cooked on the inside. I find just below medium heat works well. I use a burner setting of about 4 1/2 out of 10 on the dial and fry them gently for about 4 or 5 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy.
5) Drain on a wire rack for a couple of minutes before dipping the cooked chops into the Honey Garlic Sauce.
Serve with noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
