pork chops


  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
  • 8 pork breakfast chops
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter

How To:

  • Salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops.
  • Combine the flour and some cayenne, salt and black pepper. Dredge each side of the pork chops in the flour mixture, and then set aside on a plate.
  • Heat the vegetable oil over medium to medium-high heat. Add the butter. When the butter is melted and the butter/oil mixture is hot, cook 3 pork chops at a time, 2 to 3 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook until the chops are golden brown on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes (make sure no pink juices remain). Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining pork chops.
