Ingredients

  1. 8 6-ounce boneless pork loin chops, about 1 inch thick
  2. 1/2 cup bottled Italian salad dressing
  3. Peanut oil
  4. 8 8 x 1/4-inch-thick wooden skewers or dowels
  5. Honey mustard or bottled barbecue sauce
  6. cooked corn on the cob, for serving

Directions

  1. Place chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour salad dressing over chops.; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oil to 350°F. Drain chops, discarding marinade.
  3. Insert a wooden skewer into a short side of each chop. Fry the chops, half at a time, for 5 to 8 minutes or until 160°F. To test for doneness, carefully remove one chop from the hot oil. Insert an instant-read thermometer into side of chop. Be cautious of splattering oil. Maintain oil temperature around 350°F.
  4. Remove chops from hot oil and drain on wire racks. Serve chops with honey mustard and corn on the cob.

Can't one just buy the chops with the bone in, this way one won't need any stick... Mother-Nature knows best!

Yeah, I think to qualify for "Fast & Easy Dinner" it's probably marinate for 30 MINUTES, not hours.

Really, shoneyjoe? We marinate chicken strips in store-bought Italian all the time and grill them. They're pretty popular with family and friends.

I've never had good results marinating in store-bought italian dressing. But shoving a stick into something and frying it? That works EVERY TIME.

Is there a typo in the directions? "Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 hours, turning bag occasionally." seems to be a bit off, considering that step 2 starts off "Meanwhile..." Sorry, I'm in testing mode, which puts my proofreading hat on! Sounds yummy, overall, though!
