Country Fried Pork Chops

Pork chops are one of the things that Jon always gives me gruff that I don’t cook enough. I prefer to cook something like one of my many favorite versions of a pork tenderloin, but once in a while I give in and make him one of his favorite meals of all time – these fried pork chops. It’s one of those manly, stick-to-your-ribs meals that all guys love…

Basically a pork chop is coated with a mixture of egg wash and seasoned flour, much like fried chicken is. Then pan fried. Afterwards, a milk gravy is made from the pan drippings and served over the pork chops. While it’s not the most figure-friendly thing on the planet, it really is delicious and totally worth a splurge every now and again.

I always serve with mashed potatoes, because they are equally as good topped with the gravy. This time around I also served roasted Brussels sprouts on the side, and they were really delicious with them too. If you’ve not had the pleasure of trying these, you should – as it’s “country cooking” to the core!

    I am with Jon. This kind of pork chop is probably one of my all time favorite meals. And yeah you gotta have mashed potatoes and gravy. You did it up RIGHT, Girl. However having said that, since my boys are grown this is not a meal I fix often. Way tooooooo tempting.

    Your recipes are fun. I often use them as a starting point for the food I have in my house. I took your adding hot sauce to the egg bath when I made chicken fried steaks the other night. It was a great addition. Of course we had to have the mashed potatoes and country gravy too.
    Thanks for taking the time to share recipes with us.

      Hot sauce is a great addition to any egg wash – I use it when making fried chicken too. Glad you are enjoying the recipes, and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! πŸ™‚

    Will this recipe work well with boneless pork chops?? Wanted to make this tonight and all I have are boneless pork chops. Thanks!!

      Yes, it will – but they’ll probably be a little on the dry side (the bone really helps seal in moisture). Use extra gravy to make up for it! πŸ˜‰

    If you want to make it more to my taste, use one link of hot Italian sausage. Take the skin off and fry it in butter. When done, put in a food processor with the gravy and chop until there are no big pieces. Then pour over the pork and mashed potatoes. Yummy!!

    I was gonna make this for dinner tomorrow. I have a question though. When I make the gravy using the pan drippings is there gonna be a lot of oil left? It says to fry the chops in 1/2 cup oil. I just don’t know if I’m gonna have a lot of oil left in the pan when I make the gravy.

      Hey Eryk! Most of the oil is cooked out by the time you’re done frying all the chops. You want about 3-4 Tbsp or so remaining to make the gravy! Lots of good pork flavor in that oil πŸ™‚

    I would love to make these tomorrow, my husband has been really craving them. I am a beginner cooker and its just my hisband and I, how do I narrow everything down if I just make 2 pork chops??? Help please!

      I’d halve the dry ingredients you use to bread the chops, and just use one egg for coating the chops. As for the gravy, halve that too.

    Can I use a one inch pork chop?

      Absolutely – will just have to cook them a little bit longer.
