This recipe is great for simple family dinners, or a fancy dinner party and you won't spend a lot of time in the kitchen. My family hardly ever eat pork and when I served this dish to them they thought the pork chops were wonderful! Everyone in the family loved them, fresh tasting but with home style touch. Truly down-home Italian comfort food!!!
Delicious Parmesan-Crusted Skillet Pork Chops
Yield: 4 servings
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
- 3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
- 4 (1/2 to 3/4-inch thick) center-cut pork loin chops (each about 10 to 12 ounces)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- Lemon wedges, for serving
Whisk the eggs in a pie plate to blend. Place the bread crumbs in another pie plate. Place the cheese in a third pie plate. Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chops completely with the cheese, patting to adhere. Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
