Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

Ummmm, WOW! Had a little bit of a carbohydrate marathon this weekend! Just hanging out with my stress buddies! Decided I better kick them to the curb and go Carnivore…at least for today! So… my fellow meat lovers… today I’m sharing these amazing Parmesan crusted pork chops! One of my all time favorite pork recipes. I love the crunchy coating on the outside and the juicy tender insides! (Please put that shake’n’bake away for today! We are making our own!) They are really easy to make and so filling. This dish is versatile enough for midweek family dinners or for a dinner party. (You know when you invite your favorite celebrity or head of state over for dinner?)

Here is what you need… One large Snickers Bar! (This has nothing to do with the recipe…it’s just your “pre-dinner” snack!) Four boneless pork chops. I like to buy the big packs at Costco. The ones that look like they’ve been cut for the entire NFL linebackers squad after practice snack? Nobody on this planet needs a pork chop that is one inch thick! First thing I do when I get those chops home, is to cut them 1/2 inch thick. (Whew! Much better!)  Next, beat two eggs and pour them into a pie plate or shallow dish. This will be your egg wash. In the other pie plate, mix your bread crumbs, garlic salt and pepper, grated Parmesan cheese.

Parmesan Pork Chops Prep

Place a skillet on the stove with 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Heat the oil over medium heat. Dip your pork chop into the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs being sure both sides are well coated. (Nothing worse than a naked pork chop! Okay, well maybe there are worse things but, you’re gonna want those crunchy bits! They’re the best!) Place the pork chop into the heated oil. Cook until golden brown (I love saying that..goooolden brown!) then turn over and cook the other side. About 5-7 minutes per side. (Hmmm…wonder where that picture is of them cooking? Probably hanging out with the other ones I forgot to take! One of these days folks…ONE.OF.THESE.DAYS!) Once they are beautifully golden crispy and the juices run clear, and the heavenly angels are singing, remove from the heat and plate to serve.

Parmesan Pork Chops

Golden Crispy Juicy Pork Chops! I serve mine on a bed of wild rice and top with shaved Parmesan Cheese. Yum! The wild rice and pork chop are a perfect combination! The full nutty flavor of the wild rice is a wonderful compliment to the garlic Parmesan crusted pork chop. One of the perks of cooking these on the stove top is that they don’t dry out like they do in the oven when baking. Plus in this summer heat you don’t have to heat up the oven! That’s win-win in my book!  Are you ready to make this for dinner? I hope so. I know the loves at your Nest will enjoy them as much as mine do.
