Fried Pork Chops Recipe
This quick and easy fried pork chops recipe starts by preparing a lovely French pickle sauce called sauce charcutière.
Please do not be put off by preparing a French sauce recipe. It truly is easy and well within the range of the average home cook. And when you pour this delicious mixture on top of your pork chops, your dinner will be elevated to memorable.
Recipe NotesThe fact that charcutière sauce features pickles is not incidental. A very popular combination in French cooking is to pair pickles with a plate of dry sausage or ham. This is why you are likely also to spot a jar of pickles in the pork butcher's store. Here in France, I use cornichons to make this fried pork chops recipe. They are small, crisp pickles and I imagine gherkins will make a good substitute. Serving suggestions: This fried pork chops recipe goes great with celery root puree. Regular mashed potatoes too will give you a perfectly good excuse for having extra sauce. Finally, you could also serve this with steamed vegetables and a good crusty French bread baguette for an even simpler dinner.

If in your travels, you are so lucky as to find a charcutière, here are some of the many delights that you are likely to see on display:
