It’s been a while, but I tested out a new recipe last night.
Parmesan Crusted Pork. The recipe is from Giada de Laurentiis’s cookbook “Family Dinners”. And it is insanely good.
If you’ve never tried one of her recipes, do so immediately. Typically, they’re incredibly easy and they are always tasty.
2 large eggs
1 cup dried Italian bread crumbs
3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
4 center-cut pork loin chops (pound each to 1/2 to 3/4-inch in thickness)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons olive oil
Lemon wedges, for serving
Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Place the bread crumbs in another dish. Place the cheese in a third plate.
Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper.
Coat the chops completely with the parmesan, patting to adhere.
Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, again patting to adhere.
Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to plates. Serve and ejnjoy.
