Thursday night was another one of those ‘clean out the fridge’ dinner nights. When we bring home groceries from Costco, the first thing we do is separate the meat that comes in bulk into individual dinner servings, and then I place those into the freezer. I had two pork loin chops thawed in the refrigerator and wanted to mix it up from our usual grill-pan dinners. I knew I had about 1/4 package of Panko Breadcrumbs in the pantry so I got the box out. I also love mustard on my pork chops, so suddenly this condiment became my coating base. When paired all together, a star pork entree was born.
Panko-Breaded Mustard Pork Loin
1 pork loin chops
1/8 cup yellow mustard
1/8 cup stone ground mustard
1/2-3/4 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
Heat grill pan over medium heat.
Place pork into a ziploc and beat until 1/2 inch thick.
Add mustard to ziploc and cover pork until fully coated.
Place breadcrumbs into a separate dish and add pork. Fully coat pork on both sides.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to the grill pan and place pork into pan. Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes, then cook covered on the other side for 5 minutes.
I served mine alongside leftover squash and zucchini.
Tell me about your plans for the weekend!
