thick center cut pork chops 11/4″ (thick)
Ground black pepper
good quality bread, torn into small chunks
pinch cayenne powder
This is Matt with Creative Cooking Corner and today we’re going to do Crispy Oven Baked Porkchops. What I have here is two, they’re about an inch and a quarter thick or maybe less than that, center cut pork chops with bone in. So you’ve got your tenderloin on this side and here’s your loin on this side. You can use any kind of pork chop you want. What I have here is Dijon mustard, black pepper fresh ground, and mayonnaise. So what we’ll do is we’ll just coat these. So you can see that I’m really getting a good coating on the pork chops — both sides. Okay, so you can see that the pork chops are coated nicely with the mustard, mayo, and black pepper mix. And what we’re going to do is take those and set them off to the side and get started on the breading.
Okay, for the breading, what we’re going to do is get out our food processor. I have some leftover shallot that I had, about a quarter of an onion, and put that in there, some parsley. I’m going to give that a chop. Next I have some parmesan cheese. And this I have: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and a pinch of thiamine. Give that a chop. Scrap down the side of your bowl a little bit. Give it another chop. Add a bowl of bread I tore up. It is some day old bread that I had around. And we just added the rest of the bread. You want to process it alternately until it’s a coarse mill. And it will be a little wet, so what we’ll do next is put it on a sheet pan and put it in the oven and dry it out a little bit and ground it a little bit, which will add in the crunchiness of our pork chops. You can also use this for chicken if you wanted too – same recipe.
Nice texture. Not super fine or too coarse. And we’ll just spread this out. It’s a little damp with the onion and stuff, so don’t worry about that. We’re going to get it nice and dry. So I just put the breading in the oven at 350 degrees on a sheet pan and I set the kitchen timer for about ten minutes. And I’ll cook it for ten more minutes just to get it dried out and golden brown.
Okay, so you can see my bread crumbs. I took them out of the oven and I roasted at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes and I stirred them every ten minutes on the sheet pan. And you can also see that I added some other bread because I decided that I’m going to use it and do another recipe right after this one and I’m going to use some more. You can see that there’s some small pieces and big pieces in here.
The pork chops have been marinating in the mayonnaise, so we’re going to pick them up and make sure they are well covered in mayonnaise again. We’re just going to dredge them in bread crumbs. You’ll notice that I didn’t add any salt because the mayonnaise will be salty and you can always salt at the table. You just put them in here and press down a little bit. Gently pick it up and give it just a little shake and lay it on your sheet pan. And what I did with the sheet pan is I covered it with tin foil just to make clean up easier. I put an elevated rack on there and then sprayed it with pan release. Let’s go ahead and take our other pork chop and do the same thing and then we’ll pop it in the oven.
Okay, you can see our pork chops are beautifully breaded. Nice thick coating. And they’re on an elevated rack. We’re going to cook them at 350 for about 25-30 minutes.
So we’re back after 30 minutes. The pork is registering about 155, which is about the perfect temperature to take them out of the oven because they’ll still do a little carry over cooking and you don’t want to dry them out because that’s no fun eating dry pork chops. You can see that they turned out beautiful. The coating is all nice and crisp, sticking, which is nice because it’s not falling off.
So let’s go ahead and plate one up and give it a try! Very good. Just has a great balance of flavor. And it’s nice and crunchy. Anyway, so that’s it for the crispy pork chops. Feel free to leave any comments and if you have a recipe you want us to give a try, go ahead and submit that and we’ll take a look at it. Have a nice day!
