Southern Fried Pork Chops
- COOK TIME
- 20 Min
Southern Fried Pork Chops are a "must" in all Southern households. One bite will tell you why!
What You'll Need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper
1 cup water
4 (1-inch) pork loin chops (1 to 2 pounds total)
2 cups vegetable shortening
What To Do:
- In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Place water in another shallow dish. Dip pork chops in water then in flour mixture, coating completely.
- In a large deep skillet, heat shortening over medium heat until hot but not smoking (see Note).
- Add pork chops and cook 7 to 8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and coating is golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately.
The trick is to heat the shortening till it's hot but not burning. That way, you get a nice crispy outside without the pork chops becoming greasy.
