Today I am going to show you how to make the best fried pork chops you will ever eat. The breading for these is made of buttery crackers - which sounds weird but is actually a southern delicacy. Try them once and you'll never bread them any other way again.

And while I'm doing fried pork chops, this breading also works amazingly well on chicken and venison. It tastes just like the way my grandma and dad bread deer and fry it up! :D

Fried pork chops only take about fifteen minutes to make, so you can do this and a salad and have dinner! It's great for when you're feeling lazy.

Step 1: ingredients!

In this case, I'm assuming you're making two pork chops:
  • 2 "breakfast" pork chops - 1/2 inch thick or so.
  • 8 buttery crackers - I'm using Trader Joe's social snackers
  • few cracks of pepper
  • a couple pinches of citrus salt (or regular salt, but citrus salt makes them amazing!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg, beaten very well
You can scale this up really easy! It takes roughly four crackers to coat a pork chop, and one egg can coat around five pork chops. The key is making sure to add enough seasonings to the crackers.
mmmmm those chops look really good. I would love to try this recipe. I've never heard of trader joe's social snackers though. Is there a cracker I could use instead of joe's crackers? Thanks <br>
be nice
It doesn't get any BETTER than this!!...Wonderful!!...
yumm! is there any other seasoning that you personaly would think would be good? <br>
I really like oregano, paprika and coriander with porkchops - I bet those seasonings would work great with the crackers too. :)
cool. ill try them :)
This looks SOO good! I think I'm going to make this sometime next week, I can't wait! Thank you for sharing :)
You're welcome! I know you'll love it. :D
My Dad used an almost identical recipe for frying oysters that we all loved. I bet the citrus salt would make them even better, (-8
Oh, I bet it would too! I could see this working awesome with oysters. :D
Excellente! Estas chuletas se ven bien ricas. Como me gustan a mi. =)
Yum! Definitely going to try this one out.
