Wash and pat dry the pork

skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add the oil
or fat to the skillet. Using a gallon-sized
sealable bag, combine the flour and salt.
Slide the pork chops into
the bag, seal, and tumble, rolling the bag until the
chops are covered with flour. Take the chops from the
bag and shake off excess flour.
Place chops into hot
skillet. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes

clear juice and meat feels firm. (If you use a
thermometer, it should read 150° F.)
