Weeknight Pork Milanese (so easy!)

You will not believe how quick and easy this Weeknight Pork Milanese recipe is! Not to mention it’s a crowd-pleaser (at least at my house). I do recommend serving this with plenty of veggies on the side, and even adding some diced tomatoes over top of the pork if you’d like. The leftover pork (if you have any!) is great diced and served over a salad for lunch the next day. Enjoy!

  • Lightly beat the eggs in a shallow bowl. Set aside. Mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, and Italian seasoning in another shallow bowl (as pictured below).
  • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Designate one of your hands as the “wet hand” and the other one as the “dry hand.” With your wet hand, toss the pork in the egg mixture until coated, then with your wet hand, drop the pork on top of the breadcrumb mixture. With your dry hand sprinkle some breadcrumbs on top, and then toss around until fully breaded. Place on a plate and repeat until all pieces are breaded.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops until golden brown on both sides and cooked all the way through (no longer pink in the middle), about 6 to 8 minutes. Squeeze lemon over top, garnish with parsley (if desired) and serve.

  1. Where do you find humanely raised pork that’s boneless? My farmer sells bone-in, so I won’t be able to pound them thin. Trying to stick to 1 grocery store during quarantine, and can’t find boneless chicken thighs either. So frustrating as thighs are cheaper and tastier. I miss Trader Joe’s. I am slowly running out of my TJ’s, Aldi, farmers market and Whole Foods, stockpiles.

  2. 5 stars
    This is the first meal my husband of 10 years has prepared since we met. He has never cooked and after he was craving breaded pork cutlets, I showed him this recipe. Success! So easy for a beginner, and tasty. He can’t wait to make them for us again. Served with roasted veggies and green salad.

  3. I’m new to your blog. Just received your cookbook in the mail :) Loving it so far. I made this recipe last night for the family. They ABSOLUTELY loved it!! Can’t wait to try more.
