The Next Time You Fry a Pork Chop


I have loved pork chops since I was a little girl. Despite my vegetarian tendencies, I love pork. My mom would lightly salt pork chops and then dust in flour and fry in hot peanut oil. She usually served them with onions or mushrooms and rice. Pork chops are a comfort food that I also make for my children. I marinate them in soy sauce, brown sugar and salt. Then coat in rice or wheat flour and then fry them in grapeseed or coconut oil. It’s similar to the way Japanese make Chicken Karaage. Be careful because the sugar and soy sauce make them burn a little faster. If it’s brown but not cooked through, throw them in a hot oven for fifteen minutes before serving. I enjoy these with pickled onions!
