Crispy Fried Pork Chops

Boneless or Bone-In:

When it comes to making fried pork chops, you have the choice of boneless or bone-in cuts. While boneless pork chops are easier to eat, the bone-in variety ensures even cooking throughout.

Pork Chop Cuts:

In this recipe, we opted for the rib chop. This cut, with its large bone running along one side, is easy to identify and remove. However, other cuts such as loin chop, boneless chop, or shoulder chop can also be used.

  • Rib Chop: Considered the most desirable cut, it is tender with a rich pork flavor. It comes from the rib section and has a prominent bone running along one side.

  • Loin Chop: This cut has a t-bone in the middle, with loin meat on one side and tenderloin meat on the other. Since these two meats cook at different rates, it requires more attention to achieve the desired doneness.

  • Boneless Chop: This lean cut is commonly sold in the United States. Be cautious when cooking boneless chops, as they can easily become dry due to their low fat content and lack of connective tissue.

  • Shoulder Chop: Although not commonly found in American grocery stores, this cut offers a lot of flavor, but also contains gristle and bones. It is best suited for braising.
