Fried Breaded Pork Chops

I bought a new computer and have been fooling around with iMovie. Let me know what you think of the little video.

3 Bone-in Pork Chops
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 cup lime juice
juice of 1/2 orange
1 egg
seasoned bread crumbs
oil for frying

If your pork chops are thick as mine were, you should pound them to flatten a bit. Cover with plastic wrap and go at it. Prepare your marinade with the garlic, salt, rosemary, lime juice and orange juice. Pour over pork chops and refrigerate for about an hour. After the hour has passed beat an egg in one bowl and pour bread crumbs into another. Pass your pork chop through the egg coating both sides and then coat both side of the pork chop with the bread crumbs. Repeat this process. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a frying pan ad drop in your pork chops. Let brown on one side then flip and brown on the other. If they are browning too quickly turn down the heat. If your chops are thin enough they should cook within about 10 minutes. If the chops are very thick you may have to finish them off in the oven. (I always have a hard time judging the doneness of fried food... so I cheat. I pull one out and cut down the middle to check.)


  1. Oh how fun!! I really liked it! It made me smile...and hungry :D

  2. The addition of Rosemary to a very simple mojo (naranja agria, salt, garlic) sounds really good. Rosemary is my mother's favorite herb I think I'm going to make this for her :)

  3. By the way chica I posted my version of Caldo Gallego for you a long with a link to my grandmother's version and also a very authentic one made by a Galician woman. Take your pick (but I like mine better :D

  4. I really like the video. It is a great addition.
