Home Cooked Comfort Food: Fried Pork Chops

Fried Pork Chops

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!

Fried Pork Chops Recipe

Serves 4


  • 4 Pork chops, medium thickness
  • 1/2 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 Cup Vegetable oil


  1. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Combine flour and seasonings in shallow bowl. Coat pork chops in flour, shaking off excess. Set aside until ready to fry.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add pork chops to fry. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels. Serve hot.
