Preheat a large, about 12-13-inch, heavy (cast iron is recommended) frying pan over medium-high heat.

Fry the bacon strips, on both sides, until crisp and fat has rendered out. Remove the bacon and reserve for other uses.

Fry bacon strips on a cast iron pan to render fat.
Add vegetable oil to the frying pan. Let the oil warm up to cooking temperature, about 325F.
Dredge each pork chop in flour again, making sure each side is covered really well. Place in the frying pan and cook over medium heat about 4-5 minutes per side, until deep golden brown and the internal temperature of the pork reached 145F. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the pork chops you are using.
Remove pork chops, place on a platter and cover with foil and let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
