Country Fried Pork Chops

Country Fried Pork Chops


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1-1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • canola oil for frying


  1. Mix flour, paprika, pepper, salt, and cayenne together in a shallow plate.
  2. Beat eggs and hot sauce together in a small bowl, transfer to a shallow plate.
  3. Lightly cover a pork chop in plastic wrap and bash it with the flat side of a meat hammer (from the middle outward) until it is half the thickness it was when you began.
  4. Repeat with other pork chops.
  5. Add enough oil in a heavy high sided pan (like a Dutch oven) to reach half way up the pork chop.
  6. Dredge each pork chop in flour, egg, then flour again and place on a rack. Allow to dry for about 5 minutes while your oil is heating.
  7. Pre-heat oil until it reaches 360 F.
  8. Carefully slip one pork chop into the oil and set a timer for 5 minutes. Ideally, you want the temperature to stay between 360-375 F so keep a close eye on it.
  9. When the timer beeps, carefully flip the pork chop over and fry for another 5 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel covered plate.
  10. Repeat with the rest of the pork chops, adjusting the temperature as needed.
  11. Enjoy with more hot sauce.
