Italian Style Pork ChopsI have spent many hours searching for a pork chop recipe that has great flavor. Many I have tried just don't make the cut. They turn out dry or the flavor just overwhelms the meat. Finally, I found this recipe that is just plain great every time. It is also simple to prepare. It is best just as it comes out of the oven when the breading is crispy and hot. It is still good the next day or after being frozen but loses the crispness that is soooo good!
This recipe began it's life on All Recipes but I read the comments and tried and tested and made a lot of changes for the better!
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
1 Tblspn. Italian-style seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese (Bottled kind)
1/4 teas. garlic pdr.
5 Tblspn. butter, melted
6 bone-in Pork Chops
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the crushed saltines, Parmesan cheese, Italian-style seasoning and garlic powder and mix together well. Dip the chops in the melted butter and then dredge each chop in the cracker mixture, coating all sides thoroughly. Place the chops in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. (I check after 25 min. with a thermometer and by cutting in to them to see if the juices are clear. Please don't let them get over done and dry!)
