Pan Fried Pork Chops are seasoned and breaded pork chops fried in butter and served with sweet and tangy pan juices. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or buttered egg noodles with a little chopped fresh dill. My favorite vegetables to serve with this are southern-style green beans and honey-glazed carrots.

How To Make pan fried pork chops

  • 1
    Remove the chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to starting the recipe. Cover the chops with plastic wrap and pound a little bit with a meat mallet to tenderize them. Generously salt and pepper the pork chops on both sides.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 225 degrees. In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and ground cayenne pepper. Dredge the pork chops into the flour.
  • 3
    Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the chops until golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the chops to an ovenproof plate and place them in the oven.
  • 4
    Add the white wine to the skillet to deglaze the pan. Reduce the wine by half while scraping the bottom of the pan to remove the brown bits.
  • 5
    Add the low-sodium chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, rosemary, and thyme sprigs. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, and then serve the pan juices drizzled over the chops.
