In the middle of winter there is a tendency to crave comfort food…fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes. You get the idea. I certainly didn’t say anything about healthy…just comforting. This particular plate of food is one of my favorites. Fried pork chops are homey and comforting and pair perfectly with a healthy spoonful of mashed potatoes and some sweet applesauce.
During my high school years, I spent many of my weeknight dinners with a family friend. Her mother cooked what I consider comfort food on a regular basis. My recollection is that she would cook fried pork chops at least once a week. I don’t recall what we ever ate with those pork chops because they were just so delicious. When I make these Fried Pork Chops, I remember those fun weeks hanging out with friends and looking forward to home cooked comfort food. Delicious!
