Smothered Pork Chops
- Egg Wash:
- 2 cups milk
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- Seasoned Flour:
- 3 cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 4 (5 to 6-ounce) bone-in center cut pork chops
- Favorite Onion Gravy, heated
Combine milk, egg, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine flour, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Fill a large, deep pot or skillet halfway full with vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees F. Dip pork chops in the seasoned egg wash. Dredge in seasoned flour, lightly coating pork chops. Fry in the vegetable oil until golden brown. Remove from the oil to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil. Place chops in a 2-inch deep pan in a single layer. Completely cover pork chops with your favorite onion gravy. Cover pan with foil and place in the oven for 45 minutes.
