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

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.

  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.

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!
