Right now I’m reading a book called Loki by Joanne Harris. It’s very good and I’m enjoying it a lot. Here’s a recipe for a quick and easy dinner of pork Milanese, zucchini fries and parmesan orzo.
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
2 large eggs
6 boneless pork loin chops, pounded thin to 1/3 inch-thick (1 1/2 pounds total)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil
6 lemon wedges
Watch how to make this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
Combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and seasoning in a shallow dish. Lightly beat the eggs in another large shallow bowl. Sprinkle the pork generously with salt and pepper. Dip the pork, 1 piece at a time, in the egg, allowing the excess to drip off, then dredge the pork in the crumb mixture, patting to coat completely. Place the pork on a small baking sheet.
Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the pork to the hot oil and cook until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain, then transfer them to a clean baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and fry the remaining pork.
Transfer the pork to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
