Brown. Beautiful. Crispy. Parmesan. Pork. What else could you possibly want in the star of your dinner? I just love making these, and you won’t believe how delicious this dish is. It’s absurdly easy, and I assure you, there will be lots of “mmm”s going around the table. As far as cooking the dish, all I have to say is make sure you use a good quality parmesan cheese and also take care not to overcook the pork. A g
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Set up three bowls, placing the grated parmesan in the first bowl, the eggs in the second, and bread crumbs in the third. Whisk to blend the eggs.
Season the pork chops generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Dip in the parmesan, pressing down on the cheese to help it adhere a bit, then dip it in the egg. Make sure to let the excess egg drip off pretty well (if you've ever had breading fall off on you during/after cooking, it's because you didn't let it drip off well). Last, dip the pork chop in the bread crumb. Repeat with the other 3 pork chops.
Heat up a skillet over medium high heat. Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan, and brown the pork chops for 2 minutes on each side, then finish in the oven for 5 minutes until the interior reaches 155 on an instant read thermometer. If your pork chops are smaller or bigger, this time will vary a little bit, so make sure you use that thermometer for perfectly cooked meat. Enjoy!
Wow, these look delicious! I always wondered how I could make pork chops taste less plain. What is the process of brine?
Oh, perfect! It’s amazing how much a difference it makes when pork isn’t over cooked…absolutely!delicious
Never thought f adding cheese, but it does look good and crispy…
Yes!! What a great, quick and delicious meal. You can’t ask for anything better for a weeknight dinner. Oh and your directions (about adding to the oven at the end to get the temperature right) were spot on. Thanks again – I’ll definitely be making these again.
Quite delicious, quick, and easy to make. Just gets a little messy with the crumbs @_@
