That’s it! I clicked past this picture on Pinterest too many times, and I was just unable to resist opening the link to the crispy, juicy, gravy-smothered delight that was these pork chops.
I did not regret it.
Assorted pork chops are a seriously economical choice for dinner, especially when they are on sale at Brookshire’s.
They are a versatile meat. They can take a variety of seasonings, cooking methods and even sauces, and still come out the shining star of a meal, as they do here.
These pork chops are seriously crunchy and seriously spicy. You can reduce the amount of creole seasoning if necessary, but for those of us who love a spicy kick, have at it!
Spicy Fried Pork Chops
10 (1/4-inch thick) bone-in pork chops
2 cups flour
1/2 cup hot sauce
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbs creole seasoning
1/2 Tbs black pepper
1/2 Tbs garlic powder
1/2 Tbs onion powder
1/2 Tbs paprika
3 cups low-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 Tbs flour
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs butter
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp creole seasoning
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
dash of hot sauce
Start by removing pork chops from packaging and patting dry. Place pork chops in a large dish or shallow pan.
Mix creole seasoning, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Add 1 tablespoon of this mixture to the flour; stir to incorporate.
Beat egg; add hot sauce and remaining seasoning. Pour over pork chops until they are covered, and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Add oil to a cast-iron skillet; heat to 350° F.
Remove pork from refrigerator, and pour off excess marinade.
Dredge pork chops in seasoned flour and place in hot oil. Fry for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from oil; drain on paper towels.
Place in oven heated to lowest setting to keep warm while remaining pork fries and gravy is prepared.
For the gravy, drain grease from cast-iron skillet. Add butter and olive oil to the skillet; whisk in flour. Stir for about 2 minutes until a thick roux is formed. Add spices and broth, continuing to stir. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer. Stir in cream and hot sauce. Cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Serve over pork chops.
