Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops

Incredible! That is the best word to describe these pork chops. They are very quick and easy to make but taste absolutely delicious. I came across this recipe on the cooking message board I read and saw many rave reviews. The same was true when I looked it up on the Food Network site, and now I see why. This is a great recipe to make after a long day because it is so easy and takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. Plus, I went ahead and made four pork chops so now we have dinner for another night too.

This recipe is originally from Giada’s show Everyday Italian on Food Network. I made a few changes of my own, mainly reducing the amounts of ingredients that didn’t get used (bread crumbs, olive oil). Not much else needs to be changed because these are great already. I served these with parmesan cheese bread (see blog entry below) and a spinach salad. Delicious!

Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops
Ingredients:
2 large eggs
¾ cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan
4 pork chops
salt and pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil

Directions:
Whisk the eggs in a bowl to blend. Place the bread crumbs in a plate. Place the parmesan cheese in another 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 egg, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a plate and serve with lemon wedges.

  6. I made this tonight after being out all day and not planning ahead. It was easy to put together and delicious! I used a 3 cheese blend, since that is what I had on hand and spritzed with a little lemon juice when finished. The Hubbie loved it as well! I have tried several other recipes and they all have been great! I have new favorites thanks to this wonderful site! Thanks Annie!
