  • 4 one inch thick pork chops
  • 2 Teaspoons salt
  • 1 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Gravy ingredients

  • 1/4 cup reserved oil from frying the pork chops

  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk


  • Combine the flour, salt,pepper,garlic powder, onion powder and paprika in a medium bowl. Stir to combine.  Place the mixture on a large plate or low shallow bowl (a pasta bowl works well). 
    Dip the pork chops in the buttermilk, coating both sides. Dredge the chops in the flour mixture coating well on both sides. Place the oil in a large saute pan. Heat the pan under low to medium heat until oil is hot. Place the chops in the pan, fry about 8 - 10 minutes on each side until chops are golden brown. 

    For the Milk Gravy:
    Remove all but a 1/4 cup oil from the saute pan. Don't wash the pan or remove any bits from the pan.  Add the flour, salt and pepper to the oil, whisk until combined. Add the milk to the pan slowly, whisking while you pour. Cook and whisk until mixture is thickened.  Spoon over pork chops and serve.
