Crispy Southern Fried Pork Chops

Elaine Bovender


Another favorite of my family that dates back to my grandmother, these chops come out so 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. Remove pork chops from package, wash and pat dry. Place pork chops on a cutting board. Using a meat mallet, pound both sides.
  2. In one bowl, add egg and milk. Mix with fork until smooth. In another bowl, add flour, chicken flavored base, and seasonings, mix well. Dredge pork chops in flour mixture, then dip in milk and egg mixture. Roll in flour mixture.
  3. Heat about 1" oil in 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 about 3 to 5 minutes per side, until golden and juices run clear. Remove to serving platter. Repeat with remaining pork chops. Serve hot with your favorite side dishes.
  4. Chicken flavored base is a moist powder and it is available in most grocery stores in the soup/bullion aisle.
