How to Make ~ Tender Fried Chops ~


  • 1Season chops evenly on both sides and let set for about 30 minutes.
  • 2Using a cast iron skillet works best for these chops. Place pan on burner over medium heat. Add the oil.

    Once oil shimmers, add chops to the pan, do not over crowd.
  • 3Cook slowly on one side about 5 minutes, lower heat some if browning too quickly as cast iron cooks much faster than other skillets.

    After about 4 - 5 minutes, flip chops to other side. Cook another 4 - 5 minutes.
  • 4Place lid over skillet and remove from heat. Leave set for 10 minutes for 1/2 inch chops and a little longer for 1 inch.

    Remove chops and de glaze pan with 1/2 cup red wine and add 1 tablespoon of butter to make a sauce.
  • 5Plate chops and pour sauce over.
