Mom's Tender and Juicy Pork Chops

My mom always made pork chops like this. And it's always been one of my favorite meals. I have to be honest, though...I haven't made these in a while because I try to stay away from breading and frying but I decided to give the fam a treat. So last night I breaded and fried. Needless to say, there were some very happy men in my house last night.

ice cubes
1/4 c

PORK CHOPS

6
pork chops - with bone
1
egg, beaten with a little water to make an egg wash
italian bread crumbs
vegetable or canola oil
1/2
large onion, sliced thin
2 clove
garlic, minced
1 1/2 c
chicken broth
1/2 c
dry white wine
1/2 tsp
dried parsely flakes
1/4 tsp
dried basil
1/4 tsp
freshly ground black pepper(or to taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place all brine ingredients in a plastic bowl that has a tight fitting lid. Stir, add pork chops, cover and keep in frig for at least 4 hours. (I know this is an extra step but it really makes the pork chops super tender.)
2
Remove pork chops from brine and pat dry with a paper towel.
3
Dip pork chops in egg wash and then Italian bread crumbs to coat.
4
Heat oil in large skillet. Just enough to coat the bottom.
5
Fry pork chops in skillet for approximately 3 minute per side. They should be a nice golden brown. Then set them aside.
6
Remove oil from skillet leaving approximately one tablespoon. Add the onions to the skillet and saute on medium heat until translucent - about 5 minutes.
7
Add the minced garlic and cook for one more minute - stirring.
8
Add the chicken broth, white wine, and seasonings to the skillet. Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes.
9
Put the pork chops back into the skillet with the chicken broth mixture. I place them around the sides of the skillet overlapping slightly to form a circle.
10
Cover and cook over low heat for approximately 20 minutes. Serve over rice or noodles.
