Saucy Breaded Pork Chops Recipe

Margaret Wood in Montrose, Pennsylvania passes along her mother’s tried-and-treasured recipe for tender pork chops. “I remember she served this with mashed potatoes smothered in the luscious sauce, green beans and applesauce for a quick, easy meal that was always one of dad’s favorites,“ Margaret recalls.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 7 ounces each)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup crushed saltines (about 15 crackers)
  • 3 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

Directions

  • 1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. In a shallow bowl, beat egg and water. Dip chops in egg mixture, then coat with cracker crumbs.
  • 2. In a nonstick skillet, cook pork in 1-1/2 teaspoons butter and 1-1/2 teaspoons oil over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  • 4. Remove chops from skillet. Saute onion in remaining butter and oil for 1 minute. Return pork to the pan; top with sauce. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 2 servings.

"Very tasty! Pork chops were not really tender. Maybe should cook a little longer than ten minutes, or use a different cut of chop. I will make again though. Sauce was barbecue-y and yummy?"
