We love pork chops and they are always something that I can find on sale which is a huge bonus when you have as many folks around the table as I sometimes have. I love it that people like to come for a visit and a meal. I like to cook for folks and it makes my day when they like what I cook. Sometimes there are as many as 12-14 on a given night, throw in a party and we may just be busting at the seams…but that is alright by me! Recently as people gathered round the table, I informed them that they were going to be the Guinea Pigs of something new I just happened to be trying out that night.
Chop up the garlic. and then I simply made a dip of milk and eggs, and a dip of bread crumbs, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Then I dipped the pork chops in the wet mixture, then dipped them in the dry mix. While you are doing that be letting the olive oil in a large frying pan, that you can also place in the oven, heat up over medium heat, once thoroughly heated, saute the garlic for a few minutes. Once the garlic has cooked for a few minutes remove it from the pan.
Add the pork chops to the pan and brown on both sides. It takes about 5 minutes or so.
If you have to do this in a couple of batches, that’s ok…I do too.
Once all the pork chops are browned place them back in the skillet to go into the oven for about 25 minutes or so.
I served these with a Garlic Pasta that is absolutely delicious. Everyone was oooh’ing and ahhh’ing with every bite. The conversation around the table came to a stand still as everyone was savoring each bite. And that to me screams THIS IS A HIT!
Italian Pork Chops
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
4 pork chops
You want to preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Then in a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. In a separate small bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Then you want to stir in the garlic, and saute it until it is lightly browned. Remove garlic from the pan and reserve for other uses. I can ALWAYS find stuff to use garlic in…so I just put mine in a little bowl for later.
Dip each pork chop into the egg mixture, coating it well. Then place the pork chop into the bread crumb mixture, coating evenly. Place the coated pork chops in the skillet, and brown abut 5 minutes on each side. Once the pork chops are browned, place the skillet and pork chops in the oven, and cook for about 25-30 minutes.
Then serve with your favorite sides!Print This Post
