I'm big fan of pork and I always make sure that I have it on my freezer all the time. I just simply love pork.. wink:) So, this week why not let have some Pork chop with gravy sauce for dinner.. wheee!! (super inspired) Guaranteed its very easy to make and a stress free recipe.
 Let just say, you have cornstarch,flour and pork, that's it! you can pull off some scrumptious dinner in no time and to make it extra special make some gravy sauce out of it, Ohh No,, gravy??!!!. before thinking about the gravy sauce let me share you something.... I have an idea to make things little faster and its proven and tested by ME!:) wink:). I just simply use store bought gravy pocket mix. It always perfect every time!  Instruction on the back of the gravy mix is provided and to spice up this perfect Pork Chop Dinner, I used chicken stock instead of regular water in making the gravy sauce.
I'm so excited to share this simple yet delicious recipe with you, It's been like 2 weeks or so that I haven't posted one.. So, c'mon lets make this perfect dinner for the week.
Pork Chop- I used boneless, 1/4 thick cut pork 
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoon cornstarch
Salt and Pepper
Oil- for frying
Gravy sauce mix- I used the store bought pocket mix
- Just simply follow the direction on the pocket, very easy!
-This is great addition to a perfect Pork Chop dinner

1.) Flour Mixture- In large bowl combine the flour and cornstarch, seasoned with salt and pepper. Mix well, set aside;
2.) Egg Mixture- In separate bowl is the egg mixture. Set aside;
3.) In large pan, put little oil and wait until it get HOT.
4.) Seasoned the pork with salt and pepper. 
5) Let start the process. First put the pork in the egg mixture, then coat it with flour mixture, and then onto the hot pan... Continue the process until everything is DONE.  
6.) Either you can serve it right away or put it on the oven until the gravy sauce is done.
7.) Best serve with hot with rice or seasoned vegetables and gravy on top. Enjoy and Share!:)

- Taste according to your preference, using your favorite seasoning is also a PLUS.
- Gravy sauce is optional, but It really does make the difference when it comes to taste.
- Just simply enjoy cooking...:)

* Anniversary Card-  When he opened the card,  the music played .. 'I don't wanna missed a thing'
 and he smiled.. this the song you sang the very first time I called you.. and the reason why I sang to him is simply I don't understand what hes talking.. hahaha
He asked me? How long it took you to find this card?! I just laughed.. 5 years?
