Asiago Crusted Pork Chops
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 boneless center-cut loin pork chops
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs) (I used Italian flavor)
  • 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese (I used more)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 lemon wedges
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
DIRECTIONS
  1. Put pork between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to about 1/4 thick (or you could just buy thin sliced pork chops).
  2. Put egg white in a shallow dish. Combine the panko, asiago and salt and pepper in a separate shallow dish. I seasoned my pork chops before dipping in egg.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Dip one piece of pork into the egg and then press both sides of into the cheese mixture until itfs covered. Place in skillet and repeat with remaining pork.
  5. Cook 4-5 minutes per side or until lightly browned and cooked through.
  6. Plate the pork and squeeze 1 lemon wedge over each piece followed by a sprinkling of thyme.
  7. Note: You can find the recipe for the Sweet Pea & Pepper Toss in my Recipe Box!
