Can be prepared up to the baking process & refrigerated

1 egg

1/8 tsp black pepper
cup milk

4 pork loin or rib chops 3/4 thick
1 cup corn-flake crumbs

cup bacon drippings
1 tsp salt

Beat egg & milk together. Mix crumbs, salt, & pepper. Spread about of crumb mix on wax paper.

Dip a chop into egg mixture, drain, & coat with crumbs. Repeat until all chops are coated.
Heat drippings in a heavy skillet. Brown chops in gently sizzling drippings only until golden. Brush drippings over bottom & sides of a baking pan that has a tight fitting lid & layer chops into pan.

Cover pan & bake at 300 F 45 min. to an hour, until chops are fork-tender. Or cover tightly & cook over very low heat on a range top or in a portable appliance, but chops will not be as tender & juicy as oven-baked ones.

Pork chops are good with applesauce, fried apples, or baked apples.
