Saucy Breaded Pork Chops

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.

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)

Directions

  • 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.

    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?

    I haven't actually made it yet b/c I'd like to know if the sauce is a homemade BBQ type? Thanks
