Another favorite of my family that dates back to my grandmother. These chops turn out crispy and delicious. I serve them with mashed potatoes, a veggie, and sawmill gravy. A great comfort meal any time! This recipe is very similar to my Crispy Southern Fried Chicken recipe. I found that it works very well with pork chops, too. Hope you enjoy these chops as much as we do.

How To Make crispy southern fried pork chops

  • 1
    Place pork chops on a cutting board. Using a meat mallet, pound both sides.
  • 2
    In one bowl, add egg and milk. Mix with a fork until smooth.
  • 3
    In another bowl, add flour, chicken-flavored base, and seasonings. Mix well. The chicken-flavored base is available in most grocery stores in the soup/bouillon aisle.
  • 4
    Dredge pork chops in flour mixture. Then dip in milk and egg mixture.
  • 5
    Roll in flour mixture.
  • 6
    Heat about 1" oil in a heavy skillet (I use a cast iron chicken fryer). When oil is hot, add pork chops, no more than 2 to 3 at a time. Fry for about 3 to 5 minutes per side until golden and juices run clear. Remove to a serving platter. Repeat with the remaining pork chops.

    Serve hot with your favorite side dishes.
