pork chops

pork chops remind me of a cartoon i grew up watching as a kid… i don’t know why, but they just do.  then it’s scat solo theme song gets stuck in my head… and then i want to make this dish.  it has been a while since i have made them.  tom found a video (the link is below) on youtube and was convinced that worms were living in pork chops and magically appeared when coke was present.

worms in pork chops

i proved him wrong and made pork chops for dinner this week.  there were no worms, just pure deliciousness.  i served it with fried apples and leftover cheesy potatoes.

  • four pork chops (i prefer the center loin)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c butter
  1. in bowl, whisk eggs well.
  2. crush one sleeve of crackers onto a plate, add garlic, salt and pepper.  mix well.
  3. place a large skillet on the oven over medium-low to medium heat.  (you’ll want to cook your chops low and slow.)  melt 4 tbsp butter on skillet.
  4. dip a pork chop in egg with one hand and coat with cracker mixture using the other.  (trust me on the hand thing.)  place on skillet.  cook on one side for about 5 minutes and then flip to the other side and cook for five minutes.  while they’re cooking, you will want to add a pat of butter from time to time.  it helps keeps the pork chops moist and the crackers crunchy!  you do not want to flip the pork chops too often, or they will lose their breading.
  5. if you are not certain that your meat is cooked throughly, purchase a meat thermometer.  pork needs to cook to 160°.  it should kill off the worms. 😉

  1. Love to see you carry on the family pork chop tradition!!!! I don’t think I have ever made them any other way…just like my mom and grandma, too. They stay moist and juicy this way! And those cheesy taters and apples are a perfect compliment to the chops!! Way to go daughter!
