Pork Chops Milanese

I've professed my love for Ina Garten but have neglected to mention my other Food Network love - Giada DeLaurentis. She seems to live a charmed life with her movie star looks, gorgeous fashion-designer husband, family pad in Rome, beautiful house on the beach and incredible success. I know a lot of people find her annoying but I love her. I regularly make several of her recipes including this one for Pork Chops Milanese. I love that most of her recipes are simple, yet are true to her Italian heritage and employ her classic training. I have rarely tried one of her recipes that I don't love!

Pork Chops Milanese

adapted from Everyday Italian by Giada DeLaurentis

1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
2 large eggs
1/4 cup flour
6 boneless thin pork chops
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup canola oil
lemon wedges

Combine panko, bread crumbs and cheese into a large shallow bowl. Lightly beat the eggs in another large shallow bowl. Pour flour in another shallow dish or plate. Sprinkle the pork generously with salt and pepper. Dredge the pork in the flour, patting off excess. Dip the pork, 1 piece at a time, in the egg, allowing the excess to drip off, then dredge the pork in the crumb mixture, patting to coat completely.

Heat oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the pork to the hot oil and cook until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Transfer the pork to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
