LOVE THESE.....They are great!
I made quite a few changes to this recipe based on personal preference, ingredients on hand, and a ridiculous time crunch. I brined the pork first (1 1/2 qt water, 3 T salt, 1 hour) which I try to do for all pork dishes. I had economy chops and did not remove any fat; I scored the fat on the edges so the chops wouldn't curl. I used a combination of Italian flavored panko crumbs and regular panko crumbs because I was out of other bread crumbs. I also skipped the parmesan (I know, I know - it's even in the title) because what I had on hand was shredded rather than grated and I didn't want to waste it. (I would have just moved on to another recipe, but by that point I was completely out of time.) Also due to the time crunch I skipped both the flour and the egg steps and just put the wet chops in the crumbs, like you do with commercial Shake n Bake. I baked them on a wire rack over the pan and used a probe thermometer set to 150. I don't know how long they took, but it was quick and might have been close to the stated time. My family members seemed to like them, and they would probably rate my version 3* or 4*; I don't give stars when I screw a recipe up this badly. :)
I am giving this 5 stars because of the amazing smell this made in my house! However, when I make it again, I will reduce the oven time to 10 minutes. I did not have breadcrumbs; so I took some ceasar croutons and ground them up. I also did not add any olive oil to my butter. It was delish, just slightly overcooked and I had only had it in the oven for 15 minutes. I highly recomend the crouton method, it gave a lot of extra flavor! Nom Nom!
good pork but you gotta be careful with the breadcrumb & cheese mixture--you don't need near that much to cover the pork.
Absolutely loved this recipe!!!!!! Will definitely make it again. Used thick boneless sirloin chops and baked at 350'. Didn't have any sage so used thyme instead.
Really good. I think the sage and Parmesan made these so good. I sliced a pork loin into 1/2 inch slices, so mine cooked a bit more quickly.
Delicious moist flavorful pork chops!
Wow are these moist and delicious. A new favorite in our household. I used panko bread crumbs and added a great pork herb mix from Penzeys for added flavor. I just used lemon pepper, because it's all I had. Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Made for dinner tonight... Just myself, but I cooked a 4-pack of pork chops anyway. Didn't have any lemon zest, so left that part out. Pork chops were flavorful and tender after baking!
