Fried Pork Chop Sandwiches with Maple Peppercorn Aioli
(18)
Recipe Intro From chefwillcoleman

Whenever pork chops were on sale, you better believe that they were in my shopping cart growing up. Some of my favorite early kitchen memories were of me scalding my mouth, eating a hot and crispy pork chop, fresh out of the oil, in between two slices of white bread with Frank’s RedHot. My maple aioli wasn’t something that I’ve always added, though I found it pairs incredibly well with the pork and apple combo. However, it’s tasty on salads and an array of other sandwiches, so be sure to save any leftovers. Also, when making this recipe, I encourage you to add your favorite spices to the dredging mixture and even try using different bun options like ciabatta or Texas toast.
