Pork Tenders

Here's a kid friendly meal that the grown ups will love too. If you have little ones, they love using those little hands to eat with rather than using a fork. Kids also love all things nugget and tenders form. Fried pork chops in tender form are perfect dipped in homemade old fashioned bbq sauce! Plus you get more crust and everyone loves the crust, right!


  • 4-6 Pcs Boneless Pork Chops, cut into strips
  • 1 1/2 c All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 c Buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Water
  • Cooking Oil - enough for frying (about 1/2 " in a skillet)

Add cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium heat.

Use two bowls to prepare the wet mixture and dry mixture. In one bowl add flour and seasonings, mix to combine. In the second bowl add the egg, buttermilk, and water and mix to combine.

Take each pork strip and dredge in the dry mixture, then the wet mixture, and once again in the dry mixture.

Shake off excess seasoned flour mixture and add strips to skillet.

Fry on each side until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. 

Remove pork tenders from skillet and place on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces.
