How to Make Quick and Easy Pan Fried Pork Chops
Cooking Fried pork chops has never been this quick, easy, and tasty. Here are the ways on how I do it.
Basic Fried Pork Chop
Basic fried pork chops are the simplest to make. The usual method is to rub salt all over the pork chop and fry it directly without any coating.
This recipe suggest the use of Knorr SavorRich Pork Liquid Seasoning to marinate the pork chops in. It makes your ordinary fried pork chop stand-out. Simply brush the seasoning all over the pork chop, let it stay for at least 15 minutes for the meat to absorb the flavors.
Heat around 1/4 cup of oil and then start to fry the pork chop in medium heat for 30 seconds. This will quickly cook the outer part and provide nice colors. Reduce the heat to low. Continue to fry for 7 minutes.
Perform the same steps on the opposite side. Remove the pork chop from the pan while letting excess oil drip. This is best served with rice.
Flour Coated Pork Chop
This type of fried pork chop makes use of all-purpose flour as coating. You will also need a piece of egg.
Brush SavorRich Liquid seasoning all over the pork. Marinate for at least 15 minutes. Dredge the pork chop in flour. Make sure that every part gets coated. Beat the egg and dip the flour coated pork chop into it. Put the pork chop back in flour and dredge for the last time before frying.
It is ideal to use a generous amount of oil when frying coated pork chops. Heat around 1 1/2 cups of oil in a pan. Fry the flour coated pork chop in medium heat for 6 minutes. Turn it over and continue to fry the opposite side with the same duration.
Breaded Pork Chop
I’m using Panko breadcrumbs as breading in making this dish. You may use regular bread crumbs or Italian as alternatives.
Brush SavorRich Liquid seasoning all over the pork. Marinate for at least 15 minutes. Dredge the pork chop in flour. Dip it in beaten egg and then dredge in Panko bread crumbs. Make sure to press the pork against the crumbs for it to stick completely.
The frying procedure is the same as the flour coated fried pork chop. Fry each side in medium heat for 6 minutes.
