This was a big hit with everyone in the family. I had bought thin-cut pork loin chops (boneless) at the store, so I did not bother to pound them. I had about 1.5lbs, so I doubled everything in the recipe. The amounts were a bit off - I had extra honey/mustard mixture and egg substitute, but ran out of breadcrumbs. I used panko breadcrumbs because I had them on hand. When i cooked the pork for the first 4 min, it was still very pink - I think next time I would use a little oil vs. the spray, and let the pan heat up more than 30 seconds. I ended up turning them and cooking for an additional 2 minutes to make sure they were cooked, and the crust stuck to the pan a bit. I made this again, and I found that again it takes a lot longer to cook the pork. Also, the breadcrumb coating sticks to the pan, so you lose large patches of it. I am going to try to pan fry at a lower heat/more oil, then transfer to oven to bake for ~10 min more or so to cook - I'm fine if they are a little pink, I'm talking about still raw.
