Pan Fried Pork Chops
The old fashioned way pan fried pork chops. This won’t take you but a few minutes to fry these chops in the skillet.
4 Pork chops (I prefer center cut)
salt and pepper
1 stick of margarine
1 cup of breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
optional 1 tsp of nutmeg
1. Rinse and dry the pork chops. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt pepper and (optional)nutmeg. Rub them in with some olive oil. Then rub them in with bread crumbs.
2. Put the skillet on high, feel if the skillet is hot. Put your hand over (not on) the skillet, if it feels hot add the margarine and a little bit of olive oil in the skillet. Never cook something in a cold skillet. Because it will make it stick to the skillet. Wait till the margarine gets slightly brown.
3. Add the pork chops. Fry them on medium high, not longer then 2 1/2 -3 min on each side, depending on the thickness of the pork chop. Turn over when brown. Check if the pork chops are done by cutting in the middle of the chop. Then you will see if it is done or not. Make the gravy with the left over drippings by adding 1/2 cup of water and the diluted cornstarch.
