The supermarket had a BOGO on some thick, boneless, pork loin chops. The chops were pre-seasoned with Mr. Grill, I don't know about Mr Grill, but the buy one, get one, offer was too good to pass up. I thought if worse came to worst I could rinse the seasoning off and do something with them.
The Mr. Grill isn't all that bad so I gave them the panko treatment, fried them, and served with some potatoes.
I did the flour, egg, panko routine.
Since the chops were already seasoned I didn't add any seasonings to the flour.
The chops were pretty thick so I cut them in half and pounded them thinner under some plastic wrap.
Chops are ready, now give a dusting of flour,
then an egg wash. Let the excess egg drip off the chop then put right into the panko.
Into hot oil and fry for about 3-4 min per side until cooked and golden brown.
I'm not real keen on frying, not necessarily for health reasons, but because I'm a scaredy cat and I have visions of the frying pan catching fire and flames shooting throughout my kitchen.
I will however, overcome my frying phobia to have this meal again.
Here's what I did
@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format
Crunchy Panko Encrusted Pork Chops
2 boneless pork loin chops
if chops are thick, split open and; pound thin
1/3 cup all purpose unbleached flour

Add to hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes each side, depending on thickness of the chop.
