Country Fried Pork Chops & Gravy

It’s always nice to change up recipes a little bit.  I’ve made country fried steaks and chicken many times but I was faced with the dilemma of what to do with pork chops so I decided to try it.  Wonderful results.   Moist pork chops, crispy coating and a delicious gravy.  I had 2 butterflied pork chops so I cut those in half and pounded them thin.


 
 
Country Fried Pork Chops & Gravy
 
4 thin cut pork chops
½ cup flour
1 large egg
½ cup milk
1 tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Season the pork chops on both sides.  Whisk together egg and milk in a bowl.  In a second bowl, whisk together  flour and seasonings.   Dip each pork chop in the milk, then the flour coating both sides and then repeat the milk bath and flour coatings a second time.  Place into a heated frying pan with the olive oil.  Fry until crispy on both sides, remove and let sit while you make your gravy using the drippings.
