Thin Cut Pork Chops: A Delicious Delight

Who knew that thin cut pork chops could be as captivating as rocket science? These little delights are incredibly simple, bursting with flavor, and sure to please any palate. Now, before you start thinking I’m undermining feminism, let me make things clear: I am a staunch feminist. I believe in empowering women to stand tall, be independent, and pursue their dreams. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find joy in satisfying our loved ones’ taste buds.

Let’s dive into this mouthwatering journey together and discover how to create the perfect thin cut pork chops that will leave everyone smiling.

The Perfect Seasoning: A Symphony of Flavors

Plate #1: Get ready for a magical blend of flavors. Combine flour, seasoned salt (Lawry’s is my go-to), and a pinch of cayenne pepper if you’re feeling adventurous. Don’t forget the generous sprinkle of ground black pepper, which adds a touch of boldness to the mix. Give it a good stir until everything is well combined.

Plate #2: Now, let’s talk about pork chops. Look for bone-in pork chops cut as thin as possible—yes, we want that bone intact. Sprinkle each side with table salt (because pork chops deserve some down-home treatment) and, of course, more ground black pepper. We’re creating a symphony of flavors here, so we need the richness of the black pepper.

The Lazy Person’s Secret: One-Side Only Seasoning

Laziness is sometimes a virtue, especially when it comes to seasoning pork chops. Instead of meticulously seasoning both sides, let’s keep it simple. Season only one side, then place it seasoned-side down onto the flour mixture. Flip it over, and season the other side. Now, dust the other side with flour and shake off any excess. The result is a perfectly seasoned pork chop ready to be cooked to golden perfection.

The Sizzle: A Dance of Colors and Aromas

Heat half a cup of canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Picture that sizzling sound when you add two tablespoons of butter to the oil. The combination not only gives the pork chops a beautiful golden brown color but also adds an extra layer of flavor.

Once the butter has melted and the oil is hot, it’s showtime! Place three pork chops in the skillet and let them dance and sizzle away. Cook them on one side until the edges turn a lovely golden brown. Then, with clean tongs, flip them over and let the other side cook for a minute or two. Thin cut pork chops cook quickly, so we don’t want to overdo it.

The Finishing Touches: Simplicity at its Finest

Once the pork chops are cooked to perfection, move them to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat the process with the remaining pork chops until they’re all done.

Now, let’s keep things effortless. Grab a handful of small new potatoes, poke them with a fork a few times, and pop them in the microwave for five minutes until they’re fork-tender. On a big plate (let’s call it Plate #4), combine the potatoes with a generous amount of butter, salt, and pepper. Cut and smash them until well combined.

And there you have it—a delicious and satisfying meal ready to be savored. You could go all out and add bacon and chives, but sometimes simplicity is just perfect. The food is hearty, hot, and plentiful. Tonight, we’ve mastered the art of the brown.
