Cooking Methods

The many ways to prepare meat.


Fry in a small amount of fat,
in a skillet or small pan.
Used to brown ground beef,
can also be used to cook steaks,
chicken, fish and pork.

Onion Pan-Fried Pork Chops


  • 2 pork chops
  • 1 dry onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of olive oil (for frying)


  1. Before opening the onion soup mix, use your hands to crush the larger bits of onion in the packet. Open the packet, and pour the mix into a shallow bowl. Stir in the flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. The oil is hot enough when a pinch of the flour mixture sizzles when tossed into the oil. Coat pork chops in the onion soup mixture, and shake off the excess. Carefully place in the hot oil. Turn chops over after about 30 seconds to quickly sear both sides. Cook for about 4 minutes per side, or to desired degree of doneness.
