When you walk up to a grocer's meat case, you will see different types of pork chops. For this recipe, some chops work better than others. The shoulder chop and the sirloin chop are two you should not use in this recipe. Both contain a lot of fat and connective tissue. These chops work well with slow cooking methods such as braising, stewing, or smoking.

For this recipe, you want a chop that is leaner and more tender, like the rib chop or the loin chop. A rib chop offers a more tender cut of meat with a bone running along one side. If you want a substantial cut with more meat, the loin chop is your better option. It contains a T-shaped bone with meat on either side. The meat is tender and contains little connective tissue.

Instructions

  • Season pork chops with salt and pepper.

It all starts with a well-seasoned fried pork chop. Frying the chops before you add the gravy brings a fuller flavor to the final dish and ensures the pork is cooked to temperature. Salt and pepper bring out the pork's natural flavor profile.

Once you know how to cook electric skillet pork chops, you can start to experiment with different flavors and variations. Try different flavors of beer. A pale ale is going to have a lighter flavor than a rich, dark porter or stout. Add in additional herbs and spices. Basil, marjoram, and even mustard work well with pork.
