Recipe of the Week: Simple Pork Chops

I want to take this week's Recipe of the Week post to declare my love for garlic salt. And not just any garlic salt, Lawry's garlic salt, which I lovingly call the "green top" garlic salt. There are many brands out there, but this one by far has the best flavor and can make any meat or starch dish tasty in a pinch (of salt).
I have fond memories of this salt--it was a staple in our household growing up. From fried chicken, to fish, to roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, etc.; I think I will have images of the green top flash by me when I die.
Here is one simple recipe that uses my beloved garlic salt:
4 thick pork chops
1/2 cup flour
Fresh ground pepper
3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil
Green top garlic salt!
Sprinkle pork chops with lots of pepper and garlic salt. Use a pastry brush to spread flour over the raw pork chops in a light layer. Heat a large pan and add oil once hot. Add pork chops, 2 at a time, and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until each side is browned.
These are great as leftovers, so you could double the recipe if you want to have a nice lunch or snack the next day! As a sidenote, earlier in the year, I saw a nutrition article online that said that pork chops have "good fat" and is a good meal option to get protein for a cheap price tag.
Happy Eating,
