Country Fried Pork Chops

The weather finally shows signs that Spring might actually turn out ok after all the cold and rain.  Grilling season will begin shortly but until then, this is something I made last weekend.

Country Fried Pork Chops

2-4 pork chops

Whisk together in one bowl ~

1 large egg
1/4 cup milk

In a second bowl ~

1/4 cup flour
1 dash cayenne
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Dip pork chops in the egg mixture and then in the flour mixture before placing in a hot frying pan with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.  Cook until 145°.  Remove from pan and keep warm until gravy is ready.  In the same pan, add in another tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and whisk in 1/4 cup flour.  Gradually whisk in 2 cups milk.  Add in salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.  Cook until thickened.
