Think pork chops cooked to perfection, but without needing to marinate them for hours or have to deal with bread crumbs. Imagining this already? Seems like an impossible feat? Not at all. 

This simplest fried pork chops recipe that involves only five ingredients will provide you with a delicious dinner for an entire family cooked within 15 minutes. What’s not to love about it?

To me, greatest thing about pork chops is that you can select cuts that are pretty lean compared to other pork meat and you won’t have to chuck out big bucks on a steak. For this recipe I most definitely recommend bone-in pork chops. The bone is arranged very nicely, you won’t have to pick your meat from it. 

You want your pork chops tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. It’s best to make them tender with salt. Rub salt and pepper into both sides of the pork chops before frying. If you’re more used to brining pork chops and have enough time on your hands, brining is probably a surer way to make them juicy and tender.

If you want to cut down the brining time, here’s a useful tip – use a couple tablespoons of vinegar in your brine. 

The perfect internal temperature for cooked pork chops is 145F. It’s best to use a meat thermometer, unless you are a seasoned cook and know how meat state by the look of it.

Other than that, just follow the simple instructions below for perfectly fried pork chops. Served with grilled veggies or green salad, they are absolutely delicious.
