Butter Pork Chops


This is indeed a true comfort food and absolutely delish.

I hardly do deep frying in my kitchen because the repercussion, that’s the amount of cleaning up in the kitchen from deep frying, is no fun.   But I really can’t resist not trying out this dish after seeing how tempting it was on Sharon’s blog [Delishar].  
 This is so delicious and best of all it’s so easy too!  I’m totally satisfied with it.
