I was contemplating whether I should write about this recipe because it’s so simple to do. But because it’s so simple, it should be shared! 😂
This is my go to recipe for lazy cooking days. Perfect also for when you have a busy day ahead and don’t want to spend so much time in the kitchen. This doesn’t need to be marinated for hours or 30 minutes before cooking, just season and it’s ready to cook!
• 1/2 to 3/4 inch porkchops pounded ( I like them thin because they cook faster. I’ve used thicker chops with this recipe just adjust the cooking time.)
• Oil for frying (I used Olive Pomace oil)
• Garlic Salt
• Everyday Seasoning (You can skip this if you don’t have and just use pepper)
• Liquid Aminos
Use a meat mallet to pound the meat. The goal is to soften the meat not pound it to death.
It will look like this.
Lay the chops on a tray or mat then season with garlic salt, everyday seasoning (or pepper), and liquid aminos. I didn’t put any measurements because I just sprinkle it on. Do this for both sides.
It’s very important to massage the seasoning onto the pork chops. Do this for both sides.
In a non-stick pan, heat oil in medium to high heat. The oil should cover the bottom of the chops when you put them into the pan.
Resist the urge to move the pork chops around and peek. You will know when the pork chops are ready to be flipped over when you see blood come out on the uncooked side and the edges start to look brown. This will take around 2 minutes.
Flip the pork chops and they should look like this. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Do not overcook!
Don’t forget to swirl the pork chops in the pan before removing. This will make the yummy, salty, bits from the seasoning stick to the pork chop.
For fancier days, you can dress this up with white gravy, regular brown gravy, chutney, or sautéed mushrooms. You are limited only by your imagination. This is a super simple recipe that fares well with any sauce or accompaniment. Remember to let it rest for a few minutes before serving!
My family loves to eat this with just white rice. Simple, uncomplicated, and delish!
