Crispy Pork Chops

I have to admit I am not big on pork chops. The only pork I like is sweet and sour, which if you ask me, I can get away with sweet and sour chicken. These Crispy Pork Chops, however, is in a class of its own. They are crispy on the outside yet juicy on the inside. Best of all, it is really easy to make. (Really, I promise!)

Crispy Pork Chops
3 bone-in center cut pork chops
3 Tbsp salt
3 Tbsp brown sugar
pepper to taste
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp parsley
3 Tbsp cooking oil

Step 1: Prepare the brine. Mix the sugar and salt. Pour in enough cold water so that pork chops are all immersed in the brine. Leave it for 3 hours.

Step 2: Remove pork chops from brine. Pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with pepper.
Step 3: Prepare the egg wash by whisking an egg in a bowl. Mix the breadcrumbs, flour and parsley in a pan.
Step 4: Dip the pork chops in the egg wash.

Step 5: Coat pork chops in breadcrumbs/flour mix.

Ensure pork chops is well coated.
Set aside. Preheat oven to 400F or 204C.

Step 6: Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a hot skillet over medium high heat.

Step 7: Fried pork chops till golden brown. Add more oil, if necessary. Place on a baking sheet lined with wire rack. Bake for 25 minutes till crispy and golden brown.

Serve chops with potato salad or pasta and a vegetable dish.
