How do you keep breading on pork chops?

How do you keep fried pork chops from drying out?

Use Thick, Bone-in Rib Chops for Steak-like Chops For pan-frying — and to avoid dry pork chops — buy thick, bone-in rib chops. These pork chops have more fat and connective tissue around the bone to keep the pork chops moist and prevent overcooking.

Why does breading fall off fish?

Dry flour doesn’t stick to itself very well, so if a too-thick initial dredging creates clump-like layers of flour that aren’t well moistened, in the relative violence of the fryer the dry interior of those clump-like layers will separate from each other and your breading will flake off.

Can pork chops be a little pink?

That color doesn’t indicate anything nefarious—at 145°F, your pork is at a “medium rare” temperature. You would expect to see some pink in a medium rare steak, so don’t be surprised to find it in your pork chops! If the pink color freaks you out, you can continue cooking it until it reaches 155°F.
