Description

These Best Pork Chops are perfectly juicy with a crunchy, flavorful pan-fried pork chop coating.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Center-cut, Thick Cut, Bone-in Pork Chops
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt, Plus More To Coat Chops
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Black Pepper, Plus More To Coat Chops
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • ¼ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

Preparation

Pat chops dry and generously coat with kosher salt and ground black pepper.

Combine flour, corn starch, kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne pepper in a shallow dish.

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet until hot. Add butter and let melt completely (this will help with browning the chops).

Dredge chops, individually, into seasoned flour mixture to entirely coat and then shake off excess. Add chops to the hot pan, being careful not to overcrowd. Cook 4–5 minutes per side or until nicely golden brown. Test the chop by poking with a fork to make sure the juices run clear. Be careful not to overcook the chops, as this will make them dry and chewy.

Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!

I added 2 tablespoons each of fresh oregano and thyme and they were delicious. I used thick cut-chops so my cooking time was longer but worth the wait.

I have made these 3 times now and my husband loves them. He requested anytime we have pork chops that we use this recipe. Delicious!

These turned out great, we used boneless chops because that is what we had on hand, but they still were awesome :)
