Ingredients
 

  • 1 pound boneless pork chops

Breading

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Egg Wash

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoon whole buttermilk

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl mix all the ingredients for the breading. Then in a small bowl combine the eggs and buttermilk for the egg wash
  • Pat the pork chops dry
  • In a frying pan heat oil up to medium heat.
  • Dip pork chops in egg wash then coat with parmesan crust breading. Place in hot oil.
  • At this point make sure the oil isn't too hot. There should be a light sizzle. If more you'll need to lower heat because the cheese will end up burning before the pork chop can cook. See notes below.
  • Look for browning around the edges of the pork chop before flipping
  • To check for doneness check with meat themometer for 145°F. Or cut it to check for doneness. See notes below
  • Remove and serve. I placed them on a rack instead of a paper towel to avoid ripping the crust off.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Dry, tough pork chops, avoid this by using a meat thermometer. USDA says 145ºF for proper doneness. You can pull one off and cut into check the inside.
  • Breading burning and pork chop still raw, your heat is far too high. Your oil should be at a sizzle, which is just hot enough to be frying.
  • Best oil for frying, pork lard or beef tallow. I actually used a mix of beef tallow and duck fat for this recipe.
  • Can I sub buttermilk, sure either use hot sauce or you can just use the eggs and omit it all together.
