Fried pork chops

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.

Step 2: Crush the crackers & add seasonings

I always put the crackers on a plate and crush them with a ramekin. Do it however you like. :D

Now add the seasonings and mix well. Taste the cracker mix at this time - make sure it's to your liking.

Step 3: Dip in eggs + cracker-ize

If you haven't already, beat the egg very well.

Coat the pork chop on each side with egg, shake to remove the excess and press it into the cracker mixture. Flip the pork chop and coat the other side. Make sure to shake them to get the excess cracker crumbs off.

Repeat with all the pork chops. :)

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

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
