Pork chops

Delicious chops for the daily menu: simple recipes 1

Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces pork meat
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step-by-step preparation

  • Prepare pork chops, choosing meat without fat or membranes. Gently pound the meat with a wooden mallet to make it thinner and more tender.
  • Prepare three bowls: break the eggs in one and beat them. Place the flour in the second bowl and the breadcrumbs in the third.
  • Dredge each chop first in flour, then in egg and finally in breadcrumbs. Make sure the meat is evenly coated with each ingredient.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. When the oil reaches the desired temperature (you can test by throwing in a tiny crumb of breadcrumbs – if it starts to sizzle and float actively, the oil is ready), fry the chops for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are golden and crispy.
  • Place cooked chops on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve the pork chops hot with lemon and herbs and mashed potatoes, salad or other sides of your choice.
