Fried Pork Chops

This is probably the easiest way to cook pork chops – simply beat them up, dust with flour and fry until ready. Actually you can fry any kind of pork meat like this: pork loin slices, pork chops, cutlets, shoulder parts, etc.

For thicker meat cut increase cooking time: it is important to cook pork thoroughly, when cut with a knife it should produce clear juices, especially near the bone.

Lemon juice gives pork meat a nice sour kick in taste; garnishing with chopped greens looks pretty, but is absolutely optional.

Ingredients:

  • 6 pork chops (about 1.5lb) thin cut bone in
  • About 1/3 cup of flour
  • 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped greens for garnishing: fresh dill, parsley, etc

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: rinse pork chops with cold water and dry with paper towel, wash greens, pour flour into shallow bowl:
