Pork is a very popular meat used for many cooking dishes. Pork chops are cut from the back of the pig near the spinal cord. Many pork chops are cut with a small piece of the back bone or rib left in it. This allows the bone to cook along with the pork creating a juicy, moist texture in the meat. Frying a pork chop is done using a frying pan to thoroughly cook the meat with oil spices to create a delicious dinner for your family.
Things You'll Need
- Half cup flour
- Quarter cup cornstarch
- Half teaspoon garlic salt
- Mixing bowl
- Frying pan
- vegetable oil
- Wooden spoon
- Cooking thermometer
Pour a 1/2 cup of flour and a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt into a large mixing bowl. Add a 1/4 cup of corn starch and stir the mixture using a wooden spoon.
Add salt and pepper to both sides of the pork chop. Use your fingers to lightly dust the pork with the spices. Place the butterfly pork chops in the mixing bowl and engulf the pork in the flour mixture.
Place a large frying pan on your stove top. Set the temperature of the stove top to 350 degrees. Pour vegetable oil into the frying pan filling it one inch above the bottom of the pan.
Place the seasoned butterfly pork chops into the frying pan once the pan has reached temperature. Allow the butterfly pork chop to cook for five minutes. Turn the butterfly pork chop over and cook the other side for another five minutes.
Use a cooking thermometer to make sure the butterfly pork chop is thoroughly cooked. Insert the tip of the thermometer in the center of the meat. Pork chops must be cooked to a temperature of 170 degrees to prevent illness from consuming uncooked product.
