Breaded Pork Chops

Breaded Pork Chops

My family enjoys my “Smothered” Pork Chop recipe, but I wanted to try something a little different.  Introducing Breaded Pork Chops (or ribs).  A tasty variation that brings together country cooking basics with an Italian style crisp crust.

How they’re made:

Just a few simple ingredients gets the job done.  If you’ve been following our recipes lately, you’ll know that that I’ve been tackling the most difficult of culinary delights that the world has to offer…okay, who am I kidding.  Mostly the basics here with a fun few twists.  I actually pride myself on not being in the kitchen too much.  I would rather say my day was focused on my family, friends and students.  So, for this meal, I actually had the meat breaded and ready to go in the fridge a couple of hours before the kids got home so all I needed to do was heat the oil in the skillet and cook away.

Breading:

Get yourself a package of boneless pork ribs, or chops (whichever you prefer).  Mix some milk with egg and use that as your breading “glue”.  Baste that meat well and then cover with the bread crumb mixture.  Prepare them this way in advance and wrap them in plastic wrap or get em cooking right away.  All you need is a bit of olive oil (or your favorite cooking oil) and 8-10 minutes on each side.  See the full recipe and instructions below.

My husband LOVED these and is looking forward to them again.  We must be on an asparagus kick, because it happened to be the side dish of choice for the last few meals.  I hope that you enjoy this country style, Italian crust inspired breaded pork recipe.

  1. Yummy pork chops such a classic in the Southern cuisine. I have learned to make them and my family loves them. Like the idea of pairing with asparagus specially now that are in season

  2. I love pork chops but I’ve never thought of having them breaded before! I’m definitely going to have to give them a try as they sound delicious 🙂
