Buttered Crumb Pork Chops
Buttered Ritz cracker crumbs turn ordinary pork chops into something awesome!
- 4 large bone-in center-cut rib pork chops about 3/4-1-inch thick see NOTES
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 sleeve Ritz-style crackers
- 3 tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet.
Using your hands or a food processor, process the crackers into coarse crumbs.
Mix the crumbs with the melted butter in a bowl. You might want to transfer the crumbs to a plate to make coating easier.
Mix the flour, salt & pepper. Again, you may want to transfer this to a plate for easier dredging. (See NOTES for what I use for easier cleanup).
Whisk egg with the 1 tbs water in a bowl.
Dredge chops in flour, then dip in the egg mixture, making sure chop is coated with egg--let excess egg drain.
Next dredge in buttered crumbs and place chops on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until chops register 170 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
Any cut of pork chop can be substituted. I just prefer center-cut bone-in chops because they have the most flavor IMO
I use paper plates (the better kind that have higher sides) to do dredging and coating.
