Hi! It’s Erin from Suburban Simplicity. I’m sharing a simple and tasty dinner idea today I think you’re gonna love! Over at Suburban Simplicity, we’re all about simple recipes.
How to Make Parmesan Pork Chops
Let’s get this easy meal going! I’m teaching my girls how to cook, and this easy recipe is one we’ve made together. You’ll need four boneless pork chops. The thickness is up to you.
Next, you mix the Parmesan, breadcrumbs, and spices together in a shallow bowl. You can use a plate as well if that’s easier for you.
This is where you dredge the pork chops and make sure you get them nice and coated. Pat some of the mixture into the meat if necessary.
Now it’s time to put your pork chops in a pan to crisp them up for about 5 minutes per side.
I love using my cast iron pan because it goes from stovetop to oven with ease. However, you can also use a regular pan and transfer to an oven-safe baking dish too.
After frying them, place your chops in the oven to bake. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your chops.
To finish them off and add a little crispness, you can broil them for a couple of minutes.
Helpful Tips to make Parmesan Pork Chops:
- The thinner your pork chops, the more quickly they’ll cook. I recommend a meat thermometer so that you cook them perfectly every time. Dry pork isn’t good!
- Pork is done when it reaches an internal temp of 145 degrees.
- You can skip the skillet browning step if you’re in a real rush. Just spray your pork chops with cooking spray to get them lightly browned in the oven while they bake.
- Another way to bake them is to place them on a baking rack over a pan so air can circulate and they crisp on all sides.
- This easy family recipe is great with veggies, rice or your favorite mashed potatoes.
