Fried Pork Chops with Crispy Onion Rings Recipe

A fry-up lunch is almost non-existent in my culinary journey to date as I normally prefer to stir-fry, oven-bake or steam. So when a fried chicken craving hit me and I only had pork chops in the freezer, fried pork chops naturally came to mind. And since I was already planning to use (lots of) oil for the frying, I decided to throw in onion rings as a side. This was my lunch so my husband could only drool over the pictures which I sent across to him via Google Hangout 😉
