Posts Tagged ‘Italian seasoning’

My dad comes for supper every week and we all like pork chops, so I fix them quite often.  I found this recipe from The Kitchn on Pinterest and thought it was a nice change up from a basic baked pork.  The panko bread crumbs give the chops a really nice crunch and the Italian seasoning really shines.

This is definitely going into the regular meal rotation!

Panko Italian Pork Chops 1

3 tbsp. vegetable oil

3 bone-in pork chops

2/3 cup panko bread crumbs

2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

1 heaping tbsp. Italian seasoning

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 eggs, lightly beaten

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, spray with nonstick spray and set aside.  In a shallow pan (I used a cake pan), combine the panko crumbs, Parmesan and Italian seasoning.  In a second cake pan, lightly beat the eggs and set aside.  Put the flour in a third pan.  These will be your breading stations.

Season the chops on both sides with salt and pepper.  Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Dredge the chops in the flour, then the eggs, and then coat with the bread crumb mixture.  Cook in the skillet for about 2 minutes on each side just to make a good crust.

Place the browned pork chops on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.  Allow the chops to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

I hope y’all liked the Italian Burger post from a couple of weeks ago because it was the inspiration for this meatloaf recipe.  I am a sucker for Italian flavors, but had never thought about adding them to meatloaf.  This recipe was a huge success and one I will definitely be making again.

The biggest downfall about this main course is that it is so hard to photograph well.  Meat,you are my photography nemesis!!

Italian Meatloaf 1

1 lb. ground beef

2/3 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 cup shredded pizza blend cheese

1/2 cup favorite pasta sauce

1 tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. minced onion

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup additional favorite pasta sauce

2 slices Provolone cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with a rack on it.  Cover both with foil and spray with non-stick spray.  Then poke holes in the foil on the rack for the extra grease to dip through. 

Combine all of the ingredients except the second 1/2 cup of pasta sauce and the provolone.  Shape into a loaf and place on the prepared rack.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reads about 155 degrees.  Lay the provolone slices on the baked meatloaf and spread the remaining 1/2 cup sauce over the cheese.  Place back in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Let the meatloaf set for about 15 minutes for the best flavor.
