When oil is hot, add coated tenderloin to skillet and fry until golden brown on both sides (not cooked through)!

This is my recipe and I just wanted to note a few things. All Recipes has changed a few quantities - you many want to use a but more garlic salt as well as some onion salt. Also - be liberal with oregano and black pepper. This dish is meant to be lightly fried and then baked. If you only fry it, it will be tougher. It is also meant to be s soft breading (not soggy)not crispy, but that, of course, is personal perference. In my family is is usually served with applesauce, mashed potatoes, and green beans.


I made this dish last night for dinner and changed the recipe considerably; here's what I did: I followed the recipe by slicing the pork and pounding each piece out, I salt and peppered each piece also. Then I dredged the pork in flour, then in egg mixed with a large clove of garlic and about a Tbsp. of water. Last, I dredged each pork slice in bread crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. I added butter and olive oil to my pan and cooked it until golden brown. I skipped baking the pork as the pieces were so thin, by the time they were done browning, they were cooked. I skipped the "breadings" part too. I served the pork on a big platter sprinkled with chopped Italian parsley and some lemon wedges....our dinner guests loved it and so did we.


Breaded pork is always a hit with my husband and I've been making pork chops like this for years. So, when I saw this recipe I decided to do it the same way, but instead of using chops using the tenderloin pounded down just a bit. I always use Italian style bread crumbs and just eyeball extra seasonings to add like garlic powder, cracked black pepper, dried parsley, Italian seasoning and some grated Parmesan cheese. I always dip my pork chops into the egg/milk mixture then the seasoned bread crumbs and then repeat that procedure (double dipping). This gives the pork a thick breading and keeps it moist while baking. To cut calories and time I spray the bottom of a glass baking dish with Pam, place the breaded pork in (no frying needed) then spray the pork with a little Pam, cook at 350 for 20 minutes, turn and cook for another 20 - 25 minutes depending on thickness. They'll come out moist and tender. I also do the "breadings" thing again without the frying. I also don't cover my pork while it's baking. Overall, a really good recipe!
