Michael ran across a great deal on some boneless pork loin chops (Half off? Yes please!). So I had them in the fridge with the freeze by date staring me in the face. I started flipping through my cookbooks to find a good recipe that I could make with ingredients I already had. It had been a long day, and I really didn’t want to go to the store.
I ran across this Easy Pan-Fried Pork Chops recipe and thought it looked simple enough. I checked my cabinets and had all the ingredients…winner, winner, pork chop dinner!
Now we all know that I am not the best at prepping and putting a recipe together. I get it done right, but it always takes a lot longer for me than it would for the average person. Well, I had these AMAZING chops done in less than 20 minutes! I was floored (and so was Michael!).
And the best part? They were juicy and delicious! There was just enough kick from the ground red pepper to please my spicy lovin’ husband and son, but not too much so that my way-too-sensitive palate was in pain. We all thoroughly enjoyed the flavor, and who doesn’t love a juicy pork chop?!
Michael asked me what these Easy Pan-Fried Pork Chops were called after we had had them for supper. I replied, “Scrumditiliumptious Super Amazing Pork Chops.” They were so good, that he didn’t even question me! He just said, “Oh…okay!” Which, of course, gave me a good laugh. 🙂
Easy Pan-Fried Pork Chops
Mix together your flour, ground red pepper and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl and set aside.
Sprinkle your pork chops with seasoned salt and pepper on both sides.
Coat your chops well in the flour mixture on both sides.
Heat your olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Stir your butter into your olive oil.
Place your pork chops in the hot skillet (all may not fit at once).
Cook for 3-5 minutes on one side until golden brown.
Turn over and cook until golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 145-160 degrees.
Let them rest for at least 3 minutes prior to serving.
Repeat cooking steps for any pork chops that wouldn’t fit in the skillet the first time.

You have done a fantastic job by sharing a step-by-step recipe.
I made this tonight for dinner and it was so delicious! I even had my mother-in-law over.
I tried this recipe this evening. They were so delicious. Thanks for the step by step recipe.
I fixed these chops last night. OMG they were so good. I have never been able to fry “pretty” chops but I followed your directions and they turned out amazing. My husband used to laugh when I tried to fry chops, sadly he died 4 years ago but I have his picture on the back of my stove so he watched me last night and knows how great these were (wink) I will make these again for our three boys.
Delicious and juicy! I think next time I will add a bit of brown sugar to the actual seasoning, and cayenne instead of ground red pepper (half the amount). I loved the ease of the cooking process as well.
We all loved the pork chops
Next time I will add more season salt
Great dinner with corn casserole
