Chicken-Fried Steak

This is an inexpensive meal that is so good! I actually make it without the garlic, so I don't know how it tastes with that. Without it, it is delicious!

I LOVE this pork chop recipe! I could have eaten more if I had more, but everyone ate these up! So yummy! My only change would be to add a little more of the sauce - I think I will double it next time! I made 4 chops, though. I think this amount would be fine for just 2 chops.
