  • 4 Center Cut Pork Chops about 1/2 inch thick each.
  • 1 Cup of All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of Corn Starch
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons of Buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Paprika
  • Cooking oil for frying.


  1. Begin by making the breader.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the Flour, Corn Starch, Garlic Powder, Salt, Black Pepper and Paprika. Stir all ingredients well. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the egg wash next.
  4. Break one egg into a small low sided dish.
  5. Add the buttermilk. Use a fork and stir mixture well.
  6. Setup your dredge station for convenience.
  7. One at a time, dip a pork chop in the flour and coat both sides.
  8. Dip the chop into the egg mixture, coat both sides well.
  9. Lift and let any excess drip off.
  10. Place the chop back into the flour mixture and coat both sides and edges.
  11. Place about 1/2 inch of cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  12. Test the oil before adding the chops to fry.
  13. Gently lower the chops into the hot cooking oil, one at a time.
  14. Watch the bottoms of the chop and when they start to brown, flip the pork chops over. Don’t overcrowd the skillet.
  15. Let the chops fry for about 6-8 minutes or until done but not over cooked.
  16. Remove the cooked chops from the skillet, place on a paper towel lined plate and let drain.
  17. Serve warm and Enjoy.
