Crispy Pork Sandwiches

This is a big sandwich. This is a really big sandwich. But it’s a really really good sandwich. It has everything going for it. Thick, crusty french bread. Cool lettuce. Creamy avocado. Sweet tomatoes and the star of the show, a succulent, crispy fried pork chop. Go a head. Make one….or 4.

I have heard that fried pork sandwiches are quite popular in other parts of the country but I can honestly say I have never tried one before I tried this recipe. I am not sure why. I am not sure why I never realized how delicious a fried pork chop would be on a sandwich. But it is delicious. And easy. I had these fried pork chop sandwiches on the table in about 15 minutes.

Crispy Pork Sandwiches Recipe

Makes 2 Prep Time: Cook Time:


  • oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 boneless pork chops, flattened to 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 slices crusty french bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • baby lettuce leaves
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced



Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a pan over medium heat.


In one bowl, combine flour, salt, garlic powder and pepper. In another bowl whisk together the egg and milk.


Dip the pork chops in the seasoned flour, then into the milk and egg mixture and into the flour once more.


Fry the pork chops for 2 minutes per side or until cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease.


Spread mayonnaise onto bread slices. Layer lettuce, pork chop, avocado and tomato slices on top. Serve.

    Thanks for your comments everyone! I guess I’m late to the party on the whole fried pork sandwich thing. And now that I know what I’ve been missing I think I’ve got some catching up to do. I can make these a couple times a week right? :)

    Your sandwich looks and sounds delicious! As a child, I lived in Butte, Montana for a few years, which is the home of the original Pork Chop John sandwich. Many of us in Montana still refer to a pork chop sandwich as simply a “Pork Chop John”. Funny, eh?
    Thanks for your recipe!

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a fried pork chop sandwich either but now I’m wondering why! This looks so delicious!

    Love the look of your sandwich. I can feel the crispiness of the pork that I want to cook mine now. This made me hungry. =)

    Except for the fact that we ate our pork straight up instead of in a sandwich this is exactly what I made last night. It is one of my favorite (and easy) things to make. I find I can get away with 1/8 inch oil.
