In a third ad, a gooey scoop of vanilla ice cream drops to the bottom of a glass of Coke. The message: You had a good run, root beer.

Great Add

I don't like root beer by itself at all. But a root beer float? mmMMmm! I might have to dash to the truck stop for an A&W now.

Hey Gyps...I use to have a houseboat on a lake nearby, and most mornings I enjoyed something similar:

Coffee with a splash of Rum, Kahlua, and Bailey's Irish Creme...really got those days started off nice...

yeah Pappy, i started using the Bailey's, but it got in the way

used to live on a houseboat too, in Seattle on Lake Union, and down in Portland, on the Columbia. Great life. LOL ... when the river would freeze the houseboat would be on tilt rising up outta the ice. made it really hard to take a shower at a 20* slant

Anyone here cook porkchops very often?


I bought some really nice looking pork loin chops at Costcos last week, but, when i thawed a few out last night and pan-fried them, they came out weird.

The taste was good, as for as the meat and seasonings are concerned, but, the breading came out rubbery for some reason, and i have no idea wtf i did wrong.


I have pan fried chops before, but, it's been awhile i guess.... I am pretty sure they always came out crunchy before on the outside, not all rubbery like last night.


Here is what i did exactly: thawed the chops, then dipped coated them with a mixture of flour, vigo italian bread crumbs, salt and pepper...then, put 2 at a time in a pan with hot oil...The oil was maybe not quite hot enough when i put the first 2 in, and i had to turn it up a bit, but, withing 15 to 20 seconds, it was bubbling and popping away.


Is it possible that just not having the oil hot enough right away made the coating rubbery? Or, was i supposed to dip them in an eggwash first?

the wife says i should have dipped them into a few beaten eggs, but, i really don't think i did that before when i fried pork chops..



Anyways, just asking cause i still have about 8 of the damn things to cook, and i don't wanna screw them up too....


Any tips would be appreciated..

I usually just grill pork chops on bbq and recently george foreman grill.. its a crap shoot frying them, imo. But ya, if you put flour on them you need to have the pan fairly hot before you toss them in or the coating ends up on the bottom of the pan when you go to turn them over. I also do shake'n'bake for pork every now and then because my family likes them that way. Even though (I think) the instructions don't say turn them over, I do, at least for the last 5 mins or so, They cook fast that way so watch the timer or they will overcook.

The coating didn't fall off when i flipped them...they just came out rubbery textured..Kinda killed them.


I like grilled, and baked chops, but, we are both just craving fried pork chops for some damn reason....Now i just gotta get them right.

that's how I do mine, I empty a packet of taco seasoning (the same stuff you would mix in with ground bf to make taco meat) onto an empty plate, then I dampen the chop with water and put it in the plate to coat it on one side then turn it over and do other side. Instead of the plate, you can put the seasoning in a plastic baggie and then put the chop in there and shake it to coat.

Once coated, just put the chops in a pan that had oil coating and cook on each side in pan.


Do you add any flour to the dry taco mix, or, just put it on by itself??


That actually sounds really damned good...I have an 'El Passo' taco mix kit, you mean like the bag of dry mix that comes with that, right?

don't add anything to it, just wet the pork chops with water then use the taco seasoning to coat it (the water makes the seasoning stick to them)


Hell i'll try it...I just showed the post to Trish, and she was like, ''It's gotta be better than yours last night''...


Thanks, i'll let you know how they turn out..
