  • 2 center-cut thick cut, bone-in pork chops
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp kosher salt plus more to coat chops
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper plus more to coat chops
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter


  1. Pat chops dry and generously coat with kosher salt and ground black pepper.
  2. Combine flour, corn starch, kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Heat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet until hot. Add butter and let melt completely (this will help with browning the chops).
  4. Dredge chops, individually, into seasoned flour mixture to entirely coat and then shake off excess. Add chops to hot pan, careful not to overcrowd. Cook 4-5 minutes per side or until nicely golden brown. Test the chop by poking with a fork to make sure the juices run clear. Be careful not to overcook the chops, as this will make them dry and chewy.
  5. Drain on plate lined with paper towels. Serve immediately.
