This is the best sale I've seen on pork loin, so I bought two. I asked the butcher the cut both into half-inch chops (straight, not butterflied). Then I can use them for any pork recipe. If I'm making pulled pork in the crock pot, I just put in several chops.
I put one whole package straight into the freezer. I took out four chops for tonight's meal and put the rest in a bag to make into other porky things this week.
garlic salt and pepper on the chops
Normally, I would do a full breading station with egg, flour, and bread crumbs, but I was in a rush tonight, so I only did bread crumbs. This is two heels, garlic salt, pepper, and parmesan that I processed in the food processor.
Coat both sides of the chops with seasoned bread crumbs.
Pan-fry in hot oil till the crust is golden brown on both sides.
Put on a rack over a baking pan and bake at 350 (or maybe I did 375? Whatever.) until they cooked through. 15 minutes maybe?
Everyone eats these happily, even Sarah.
