Chuletas fritas, crispy fried pork strips, are so delicious yet simple to make! They have a delicious Puerto Rican flavor and are great for dipping.

Equipment

  • 1 Cutting Board
  • 1 Knife
  • 1 Frying pan
  • tongs

Ingredients
  

  • coconut oil for frying
  • 4-5 boneless pork chops
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • 1 tbsp. sazon season

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat for frying.
  • Scramble the eggs in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and seasoning together.
  • Chop the pork chops into half inch strips.
  • Dredge the strips in the egg, and then into the flour mixture.
  • Place as many strips as will fit into the fry pan in a single layer. Cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy all around. Remove to a platter and sprinkle more sazon if desired.
  • When removing chuletas from the pan, clean the pan or add more oil if necessary for the remaining chuletas. Serve warm!

Notes

For leftovers, reheat in a toaster oven or convection oven to get some of the crispiness back.
