Pork chops are so easy to make but for some reason when I first started cooking I thought the complete opposite. I completely avoided cooking pork chops. I make them all the time now. Although I absolutely love smothered pork chops, I must admit a fried dry pork chop is heavenly and so underrated. I wanted these to be super crispy on the outside so I coated them in flour.
I also like to sear all sides of the pork chops includes the sides to get the fat nice and crispy. Throw some garlic, cheese, and heavy cream, and well that’s a recipe for happiness.
I served these with a salad but mashed potatoes will certainly hit the spot.
