This weekend #SundaySupper theme is all about "Retro Recipes", to bring back food memories that you had enjoyed during those days....... It can be from your family members or any others. I have chosen Old Fashioned Pork Chops. It wasn't from my home's kitchen but it from a restaurant with classic or retro design that I visited with a bunch of my high school leavers class-mates during the 80's in the city of Kuala Lumpur. I remembered they serves wonderful Pork Chop. As we are staying about 40 km away from the city, we spent about an hour plus in a public transport (those days bus) to reach the city for our farewell gathering.
The taste of the pork chop is still fresh in my memory. The pork chop is pan-fried style instead of deep-frying which was the popular at that time. Even though the presentation is not that pretty, but when I first bite on the pork chop, I thought I have fallen in love with it, especially the mushrooms gravy on top, it just marvelous. All of us enjoyed the food and the day very much.
So, when I see Isabel posted this week event, I thought it was time to go back to old-fashioned cooking method - pan frying pork chop. I season and coated the pork chops with a thin all purpose flour for about 3 hours, fully covered in the fridge before I fry. As both me and hubby like half moist chop, its turned out just perfect for us. My hubby even don't need the gravy and eat them up together with some mix veggies and peas. As for the preparation - this no-fuss, easy method and you will get a beautifully browned old-fashioned pork chop for weekend or weekday supper. Enjoy!
