My husband loves pork chops. They are one of his favorite cuts of meat to eat. Over the years I have cooked pork chops many different ways and these oven fried pork chops are one of our favorites. We love these!
And our favorite way to eat them is with buttermilk mashed potatoes. The gravy that this recipe makes works perfectly with a side of mashed potatoes and the buttermilk in both recipes go very well together.
Oven Fried Pork Chops
An old fashioned pork chop recipe.
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 5 pork chops ( I brine mine first and it really makes them better, so I would not skip this step.)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, room temperature, and divided
- 3/4 cup flour ( I now use a gf flour blend or Bob's Red Mill gf biscuit mix)
- 1 can cream mushroom soup (use gluten free for gluten free version or make your own)
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Pour melted butter into 9x13 pan and set aside.
- In a shallow dish or on a plate combine salt, pepper, and flour.
- In a separate shallow dish place 1/2 cup buttermilk (Save the other cup of buttermilk for later use.)
- Dip pork chops in buttermilk until completely wet and then dredge in flour mixture until completely covered on both sides.
- Place in the pan with the melted butter.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- In a bowl combine the remaining cup of buttermilk and the soup. Pour over pork chops and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes or until the pork chops are done.

Would you recommend using boneless chops for this recipe??
In like to use boneless, but I think you could also use others.

THIS is one of my newer go to meals! I’ve made it twice now and everyone always loves it. Tonight though I did it with whole wheat flour and it turned out even better!
I am so glad that you have enjoyed them! Thanks for letting me know.
Have you ever tried crushed cornflakes on these? My mom used to have a recipe I loved with them, and I’m sure you can get them gluten-free, right? So nice and crunchy!
I have not tried that, but it would probably work fine.
Does the brine tenderize the meat ? I have some chops that when I cook them they are so tough even the dog has a hard time chewing them…LOL Is there a marinade or something I can do to make them tender as I have about a dozen or so and don’t want to waste them.
The brine helps tenderize them, so I would try that and see if it helps.
I too overcook pork chops use a thermometer. They do not need to be cooked as long in todays world. Trychinosis was a problem years ago. Because pigs ate slop. Decayed food, full of bacteria. No longer legal. So go by temp. I just check online and use my meat thermometer.
Made these tonight for the first time – delicious!
Good! I am glad you enjoyed them. We love them also.
I tried your oven fried pork chops and they were delicious!! I used the brine step and was very pleased. It seem to make the the pork chops so tender!! My question is can you use this brine step with chicken breasts, or roast beef?
I have never found it necessary on beef and have never tried it for beef roasts. It does work well for chicken. If I remember right, chicken breasts do not need to brine as long, since I don’t usually brine the breasts I can’t remember on that. Whole chickens, turkeys, etc brining works great. I now brine almost all my pork roasts and chops. It really helps tenderize them. It really gives them a much better texture and makes them so tender. I am glad you enjoyed this!
Thanks Lynn !!
Did I miss the brine “how to?” If I did, would you mind repeating?

Made these for my kids (who happen to be extremely picky), and they LOVED them. I brined the chops all day, but next time I will brine overnight & next day. Great recipe!!!
I am so glad that you enjoyed them!
