Looking for a quick and very delicious meal! Breaded and pan seared pork chops! These came out so good and placing them over some creamy mashed potatoes with a veggie side! You will be the absolute HERO at dinner! This dish can really be done with a lot of things, like chicken, beef, even some vegetables. One of the key's is to get very fresh and thin Pork Chop Cutlets. Chef found some at his local grocery store that looked absolutely amazing so he picked them up and said this is our meal!
One of the best things about this dish is just how easy it is. Chef said to really look into getting a set of pans like he uses to flour, egg and then finalize them with breadcrumbs. Three process pans actually sell together for this reason and you can find them all over. The process is not difficult and the clean up is moderately simple as well. However if done correctly you will have golden brown and very crispy cooked chops! Please see below on how we did it!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes
1 Package Thin Sliced Pork Chop Cutlets 3-4 Cups Flour 5-6 Eggs
2 Table Spoons Milk
Oil, just enough to coat the pan
3-4 Cups Italian Bread Crumbs 2 Table Spoons Parmesan Cheese 1 Table Spoon Smoked Paprika
1 Table Spoon Italian Seasonings Garlic Powder Salt and Pepper
Take out your pork chops and make sure they are fresh or fully thawed.
Season them with salt, pepper and Garlic powder on both sides lightly and let rest.
Setup you 3 stations.
1 pan with Flour, one with Egg wash Scrambled eggs and milk), last with seasoned breadcrumbs.
Make sure all three pans are seasoned and mixed. (See Video for help)
Dredge the chops through the flour and get a good coat.
Then dip them in the egg mixture, again fully coated.
Then place them in the bread crumbs and fully coat.
If you want after to use a rolling pin lightly to press down on the chops you can but its not required.
Place the fully breaded chop aside and continue till all are done.
In a medium pan heat up some oil. Just enough to coat the bottom. You want to pan sear them not fully submerge the chops.
Once the oil is hot lay the chops on the pan and bring the oil down to medium.
Let them cook on medium for about 2 minutes, depending on thickness.
Once the edges start to show browning, place a small amount of butter in the pan. 3-4 small slices. This will darken the chops and really make them crispy.
Then flip them slowly and let cook again fro about 2 minutes.
Remove the chops and place on a cooking rack to drain and continue.
When cooking the rest remember to remove the oil and add fresh oil!
Adding fresh oil will make each batch golden brown.
Place the chops on some homemade mashed potatoes and have a side ready to go.
Here is our result.
As you can see they are golden brown. We did get to try them and yes the moisture held making them very tender and not try at all. They cut very easily and just had that amazing crunch to them. This was one of our fav's per how simple it is to make but also how delicious they came out. This dish is honestly very simple to make and we hope you do try it!
