Another recipe kept from the past and that was part of the Sunday lunch menu is the fried breaded pork chops recipe, served with mashed potatoes and pickled cucumber.

As you know, the breaded cutlet is a meat dish that we wrap in a crust of flour, eggs and breadcrumbs and then fry it in oil or bake in the oven. This recipe is almost identical to the famous Wiener schnitzel, the only difference being that we will not prepare it from veal but from pork tenderloin.

If you like breaded dishes, you can also make them from vegetables such as breaded eggplant, breaded pumpkin or even breaded green tomatoes. There are so delicious!

Starting With Ingredients

For this dish, I chose a kilogram of pork tenderloin which I sliced into 1 cm (1 / 2-1 / 3 inch) slices, enough for six servings.

To breading and form the crust, we will use about 1/2 cup of wheat flour, four whole eggs and a cup and a half of breadcrumbs or panko, in three shallow dishes.

And of course fried oil, I used about a cup of sunflower oil.

How to Make the Fried Breaded Pork Chops Recipe?

For the beginning, we have to pound the meat slices a little, to thin them, with the help of a meat mallet, so they will become bigger and thinner (about 0.5 cm or 1/4 inch). At the same time, the meat will cook together with the crust, and if you don’t pound them too thin, they will be tender.
