When a hankering for Italian food strikes, you don’t need to book it at the nearest eatery to satiate your craving.

“Pork Milanese is a classic Italian dish made from dredging thin slices of pork in egg and seasoned breadcrumbs, and then pan frying until crispy,” says Grace Vallo, creator of the recipe blog TastefullyGrace.com. “Milanese-style is one of the easiest Italian cooking techniques – like chicken parmigiana, pork Milanese is a traditional Italian dish that’s easy and crowd-pleasing (for adults and kids alike).”

The arugula salad that Vallo pairs this dish with only requires a few ingredients and makes for a wonderful accompaniment to the richness of the main dish.

Directions:

Pork Milanese

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together panko, Parmesan, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  2. Create an assembly line, with a bowl of flour, a bowl of lightly beaten eggs, the bowl of seasoned panko, and a large plate or tray to place your breaded pork.
  3. Completely coat a pork chop in flour, shaking off excess flour. Then completely dip the pork chop in egg, shaking off any excess. Then generously coat your pork chop in the breadcrumbs. Place the breaded pork on your tray and repeat the process for the remaining pieces.
  4. Preheat a large pan with ¼ cup olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes. When the pan is preheated, add pork in a single layer (you may need to fry 2 batches).
  5. Let the chops cook for 3 minutes. Flip. Let cook for an additional 3 minutes. Both sides should be golden brown and crispy, and the inside should register at least 145 °F (higher is fine and won’t be dry!).
  6. Repeat process for consecutive batches, adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil every new batch.

  2. Pour mixture over arugula in a separate, large bowl. Toss and serve with the crispy pork and lemon wedges.
