FF Best Buds: Spicy Fried Pork Chop and Gravy

I was in the mood for a pork chop. I know, crazy but I was. So I stopped at the store and picked up a nice package of center cut boneless pork chops. When I got home I promptly placed the chops on a platter and slathered them up with Texas Pete hot sauce. I left them alone while I shucked the fresh corn and peeled potatoes. The corn, which was silver queen and white, turned yellow after blanching. THIS was exciting because I knew it would be super sweet and it did not disappoint in any way shape or form.
So, back to the chops. In a zip top bag I added 8 tablespoons of all purpose flour and 1 teaspoon of each of the following spices: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, white ground pepper and a few dashes of cayenne pepper. I shook the bag and then dropped the chops inside. Shook it again and placed the chops slowly into a hot skillet with hot oil, about 1/4 inch. I cooked them until they were done, not fried to death and dry. Topped with gravy and served with a salad, fresh corn and homemade mashed potatoes. YES! Delicious, crunchy, moist and just a tad spicy.
