Very good. I soaked them in salted milk first (got that from Brady Bunch Pork Chops). I would add some more cheese next time. I like the Parmesan taste. I used this for 6 chops and it worked fine. I didn't need more egg or crumbs. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (8 ounce) pork chops
  • 1 egg
  • 12 teaspoon mustard (can use any good mustard)
  • 14 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 14 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cooking oil (for frying)


  1. Trim the fat off the pork chops.
  2. Lay the chops between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and, using a mallet or a rolling pin beat them until their thickness is reduced by half.
  3. Beat the egg and place in shallow wide bowl.
  4. Add the mustard, oregano, thyme,salt and pepper.
  5. On a large plate, combine the breadcrumbs and the Parmesan.
  6. Press each of the pork chops into the egg mixture, coating both sides.
  7. Then put the chops into the bread crumbs, covering them evenly.
  8. Place them on a cooling rack to dry slightly while you heat the oil in a large frying pan until it sizzles if water is dripped into it.
  9. Cook the pork chops until they are a deep golden color, about 5 to 7 minutes on each side (depending on how thin they are).
