Ingredients

Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup Buffalo Hot Sauce optional

Dredging Mixture

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  • Season pork chops with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper.
  • Pour buttermilk and hot sauce into a 9x13 pan and stir to combine. Submerge seasoned pork chops into buttermilk mixture and set aside. Refrigerate up to 6 hours, or use right away.
  • In another shallow bowl, stir together flour, cornstarch, 2 teaspoons salt, paprika, 1 teaspoon black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  • Working one at a time, remove pork chops from buttermilk mixture. Shake it gently to remove the excess. Place it in the dredging mixture and coat thoroughly. Tap off the excess.
  • Place the breaded chops into the 350 degree oil. Fry 2 to 3 chops at a time. The meat will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. Fry each piece for 4 to 5 minutes, per side, until golden brown and pork is cooked through to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  • Remove from the oil and place on paper towels. Let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

Fried Pork Chops are often served drizzled with a basic milk gravy, though it is completely optional. It is very easy and simple to make.

Simple Milk Gravy Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, whisk in flour and cook 2-3 minutes.
  2. Slowly pour in the milk and bring to a simmer. As it heats, the liquid will thicken. Once the gravy has thickened, season with salt and pepper to taste.
