Most tender Pork Chops

THE MOST tender and juicy Pork Chops you will ever taste.



Ingredients:

  • 4 Center Cut Pork Chops (we buy ours from Costco, and they are large and yummy!)
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of panko
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp of milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp accent
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp Lawry's seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (either from one Lemon squeezed or Real Lemon works too)
  • Splash lime juice
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of water

Directions:
  1. First begin heating 1 tbsp Olive Oil in your Electric Skillet.
  2. Have Pork Chops sit out to room temperature about an hour before preparing (no longer though!)
  3. On a large plate (I use paper plates, but real work too!), mix the following dry ingredients: Flour, salt, pepper, accent.
  4. In a dish large enough for one pork chop to fit in it, mix your eggs and milk together.
  5. On another large plate (again I use paper plates, for easy clean up) mix the following dry ingredients: Panko, garlic salt, Lawry's seasoning, and onion powder together.  (You can also substitute bread crumbs for Panko, we just like how light and crispy the panko cooks up instead of bread crumbs!)
  6. Now the steps go like this:  Dip a pork chop in flour mixture and completely coat on all side.  Next dip in egg mixture and again completely coat. Last dip in Panko mixture and again completely coat.  Drop onto your Electric Skillet, which should now be hot at about 350 degrees.  Just prior to placing on skillet add a dash of Olive Oil right where you are placing the pork chop! (Important to add that new dash of oil, so that the pork chop has oil under it to brown on!)
  7. Continue with each pork chop same way....once all pork chops are in skillet, watch and brown on each side.  Depending on how hot your skillet gets is how hot you will need it for this step.  Ours cooks hot, so 350 works.  But I've seen some skillets that have to go closer to 400-425 to brown meat.  This whole time I have left my lid off of my electric skillet.
  8. Once all pork chops are completely browned on all sides, I then reduce heat on skillet....around 250-300 (Depending on your skillet.  You may have to play with the temp to find the right simmer temperature!).
  9. Now add about 1 cup of water, you want the water to come up about half way on pork chops, but not completely cover them!  Also add the lemon juice.
  10. Cover & cook on simmer temp for about an hour.  Check every 15-20 minutes to make sure that the water hasn't evaporated.  If the water is evaporating, add more water to keep it around half way up pork chops.  I usually have to add water twice to mine during the hour of cooking.  
  11. About 5 minutes before serving, take lid off of the skillet and bring heat back up to around 350....cook hot for about 5 minutes to evaporate the water.  I usually add a splash of lime juice just as the water is almost gone to help the pork chops from sticking to the bottom.  
  12. Serve!  These are tender, juicy with lots of flavor.

The is a favorite recipe of our family.  We usually serve mac n cheese, applesauce and sometimes rice with the pork chops.  My guys aren't big vegie eaters, but if I can slip in a vegie at the table too for me it is a complete yummy meal.  

Hope you enjoy!
