Southern Pork Chops Recipe

Fried Southern Pork Chops

Southern pork chops are a delicious treat.  My wife prepares this recipe for me all the time. And the pork chops are always delicious, making for a tasty and enjoyable dinner.  Funniest part of all, is my son enjoys eating fried pork chops more than me.

My usually side dish is homemade mashed potatoes, with gravy, green beans, and warm rolls.  My son prefers you eat his pork chops with either macaroni and cheese or french fries.  

For drinks we either have cold iced tea or homemade lemonade. We will often finish off a meal of pork chops with one of many homemade desserts we prepare at home.

Enough about me and my family. Are you ready to try your hand at preparing pork chops the southern way? If so, here is a southern-style pork chops recipe for you to try out. Trust me, you will be pleased at the results you get.
