Another very well known recipe but I decided to cook it in a different way: breaded pork chops in the oven.
Usually, breaded chops are deep fried but I really don’t like frying food – not healthy and the smell stays in the house for days. And honestly, I never manage to get it as crispy and dry as I want to. Maybe because I don’t have a deep fryer? I don’t know but it’s something I can live without. So instead of frying I decided to try it in the oven. It really works 🙂 It’s not the same as fried but you still manage to get a nice crust. I also thought that it would be nice to give a different flavour so I added parsley to the breadcrumbs. Most recipes don’t include dipping the chops in flour but I find that it helps to seal the meat and keep the moist in. So the dipping process starts with flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. And sometimes I dip it again in egg and again in breadcrumbs. This makes the crust thicker and will get more crispy. I served the chops with mushrooms stuffed with bacon and arugula salad… a really nice meal 🙂
