I've been hearing a lot about pork lately..."the other white meat" and I'm sure you have too. I've assumed that pork is another healthy option like chicken and fish. I'm sure you assumed this too. We had I guess you could say a health conscious main dish for dinner.
Sassy Pork Chops -
In a medium bowl combine 1-1/2 cups of milk, 1-1/2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1-1/2 tablespoons white wine, 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes, 1-1/2 teaspoons paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt and stir well. Place 5 to 6 center cut pork chops and soak at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a lightly greased wire rack on top of the baking sheet and set aside.
In a large re-sealable plastic bag, add the 1 cup Italian bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon `black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, and 1/4 cup grated Percorino cheese and shake to combine.
Drain the pork chops from the milk mixture, one at a time, and add to the bread crumb mixture. Shake to coat thoroughly. (You may need to press the mixture into the chops with your hands.)
Arrange the pork chops on the baking rack and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and the breading is crisp and golden.
We had a health fest and I hope you do too.
