Buttermilk Breaded Pork Chops

1 pkg center cut pork chops
Salt & Pepper
Garlic powder

~Place meat in a 9*13 baking dish
~ Season both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; rub into the meat
~ Pour buttermilk over meat until it is covered
~Cover and place in fridge for at least a few hours

~ Heat oil in skillet and remove meat from fridge
~Dredge meat in flour and shake off excess
~ Cook meat on both sides until cooked through
~Drain on paper towels before serving

** A lot of the breading will fall off the meat during cooking. Simply remove it from the grease with tongs and place on the meat at the end. It will be golden and crunchy. I serve this with white rice and green beans cooked in bacon grease and onions. Enjoy!
