Fill the pan with oil. Try to use a cast-iron pan, as it is perfect for even heat retention. It should be about a quarter inch deep. Heat the oil. You will know that it’s ready when a bread crumb foams and sizzles.

Once they’re fully cooked, place the chops on some paper napkins to drain the excess oil. Now you’re all set to enjoy this delightful dish.
