Serves: 2
Pork Chops
  • Vegetable oil, enough to fill the pot or pan you'll be using with 1½ to 2 inches of oil (4-5 cups)
  • 2 thick-cut pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  1. Begin to heat your vegetable oil over just under medium heat. Rub your pork chops with salt and pepper. In a shallow dish, like a pie tin, combine the flour, paprika, ground mustard, sage, thyme, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and nutmeg. In another dish, whisk together the egg and two tablespoons of water.
  2. Dip your pork chops in the flour mixture, then in the egg, then once again in the flour. Place the chops in the vegetable oil (it should not be simmering, at 350 degrees F, just under medium heat). Cook for 8-9 minutes on each side.
  3. While the pork chops cook, start the gravy. Melt the butter over medium heat and then add in the flour, whisking until golden. Add in the chicken broth, and whisk until thickened, about 5-8 minutes. Serve the pork chops with mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, and/or vegetables, and drizzled with the gravy. Serves 2.
