Directions

  1. Whisk 3 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, kosher salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; transfer to a large resealable bag. Place pork pieces in marinade and turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 4 to 8 hours.
  2. Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small bowl.
  3. Set oven rack about 5 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  4. Heat canola oil in a large, heavy, oven-safe skillet, such as a cast-iron skillet, over medium-high heat. Remove pork from marinade and reserve the marinade. Sear marinated pork pieces in the hot oil just until lightly browned but still pink in the center, about 2 minutes. Turn pork over and pour in reserved marinade. Turn heat to high and cook pork for 1 more minute.
  5. Spoon crust mixture over cutlets in skillet and broil in the preheated oven until the crust is crisp and golden brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

I marinated the pork for only 2 1/2 hours and otherwise followed the directions as written. We thought this was good, but when it came to the leftovers, there were no takers. We use that as a hallmark of a recipe. I love all the ingredients, but for some reason they seemed like they'd do better with chicken tenders rather than pork tenderloin--and maybe they were just a little dry. I appreciate the recipe and would try it again with a little sauce over the top made with lemon juice and butter.

This was absolutely horrible...the crust tasted doughy and the pork chops had no flavor, despite marinating for 4 hrs, and they were dry. Good thing my husband eats anything. His advice to me was just to fry the chops next time.
