Crunchy Garlic Pork Chop

Pin It Now!

As I surfing for Jamie Oliver recipe I read on this crumb mixture. It is very interesting way of coating meat instead of using ordinary plain bread crumbs. Since there is butter inside the crumb mixture you can choose to grill, fry, roast, or bake the meat dry in the oven and it will go nicely golden. Well I choose to fry my pork. My family love this new flavour of crispy pork besides the Japanese style crispy pork.

I replace some of the ingredients with the items that I easily get. After process with the food processor I found the crumbs is more on wet side therefore I added few tablespoons of bread crumbs for easy coating.

fine but wet

After added few tablespoons of breadcrumbs
Adapted and slightly modified from Jamie Oliver
6 pieces pork loin (about half of palm size with 1cm thick )

2 heaped tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 large egg

Crumb mixture:
1 clove of garlic
1 lemon (replace with orange)
6 saltine crackers (replace with 12 cream crackers)
2 tablespoons butter
4 sprigs of fresh Italian parsley (replace with corriader)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoon bread crumbs

Enough vegetable oil for frying

1. Peel the garlic and zest the orange. Tenderized the pork slices and set aside.  

2. Put crackers into a food processor with the butter, garlic, herb, orange zest and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whiz until the mixture is very fine, then pour these crumbs on to a plate. Mix with bread crumbs till well combined.

3. Sprinkle the flour on to a second plate. Crack the egg into a small bowl and beat with a fork.

4. Coat the pork with flour, egg and lastly the crumb mixture. Press the crumbs on to the pork and make sure is fully coated. Proceed with the rest till finish. Now is ready for pan fry.

5. Heat up a wok. Pour in vegetable oil (about half way cover the pork slices). Arrange the coated pork slice inside. Fry with medium low heat till cooked and golden brown.
*do not fry with high heat as the crumbs will get burn easily.

6. Place on kitchen towel to drain excess oil. Serve!
