big juicy pork chops

for some reason i was craving pork chops yesterday.

then i got sad, because i rarely get a good pork chop – and the last one i had was in hawaii…so juicy and not overcooked and just amazing.

so i dug around and found a recipe that claimed to be the best. and i’m not gonna lie – they were. so here goes.

big juicy pork chops

adapted from a sweet pea chef.

prep time: 10 min | total time: 30 min | serves: 3-4

what you need:

  • 2 thick cut, bone-in pork chops
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • some salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, cajun seasoning
  • vegetable oil
  • unsalted butter

get it done:

  • pat chops dry and coat both sides with salt, pepper

LOOK AT THESE BABIES FROM MARIANOS!

  • combine the flour, corn starch, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, and cajun seasoning in a dish

my favorite cajun seasoning. i put it on almost everything. -it's salty so if you're using this, caution!

  • heat the oil over medium high in a skillet until hot
  • add butter and let it melt completely to brown up your chops
  • coat chops individually and on each side into the mixture
  • add chops to the pan but don’t overcrowd!
  • cook 5-7 minutes per side (pending on how thick they are cut)

i wish you could have smelled this.

  • test by poking with a fork to make sure the juices run clear
  • don’t overcook! we don’t want those dry and chewy 😦
  • drain on a dish lined with paper towels
  • serve immediately hot! i paired them with some beefsteak tomato slices and creamed spinach
