This Pork Chop Milanese recipe and related story is a sponsored post. As always, opinions are my own.
Did you know that most of the meat and chicken based recipes featured on GGG (unless otherwise sponsored) are made with food delivered from Passanante’s Home Food Services? Yes, it’s true. I am a happy Passanante’s client and have been for quite some time. I have since shared this service with several of my friends and they, too, have become fans of Passanante’s.
Passanante’s Home Food Service located in Bristol, PA has been in operation since 1916. What started as a neighborhood butcher has become a state of the art processing facility that delivers the highest quality foods to thousands of customers across the country. In the early 1950’s Passanante’s began delivering meats directly to customers in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. They are still doing that today, but have expanded to a seven state service area including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina and Colorado.
Passanante’s specializes in the delivery of all-natural meats and 100% organic vegetables, as well as many name-brand grocery store items. They carry Beef, Chicken, Pork, Bison, Lamb, Veal, and a wide variety of Seafood. All of their meats are raised naturally using no hormones, steroids, or antibiotics.
Their Agostino Platinum Reserve Line is made up of beef that falls on the highest ratings of quality and amount of marbling. The beef is grass fed, and grain finished. The grass feeding promotes healthiness in the beef, while the grain finishing ensures a great texture, taste, and proper amount of marbling.
One of my favorite beef recipes from GGG are my Mexican Fajita Kabobs.
Their poultry and pork are raised on farms in Maryland and Pennsylvania and fed an all-natural diet. They too are raised free of antibiotics, hormones, or chemical additives. The chicken is some of the best chicken I have ever had.
I love the chicken in this Chicken, Arugula, Chick Pea and Pesto Wrap.
The majority of their seafood is wild-caught and sustainable. Their supply may occasionally vary, but usually includes Salmon, Ahi Tuna, Cod, Grouper, Haddock, Mahi-Mahi, Sole, Swordfish, Halibut, Perch, Orange Roughy, and Flounder. Their Tilapia and Catfish are U.S. farm-raised fish, which is considered the best choice over South American and Asian farms.
The shrimp from Passanante’s is plump and delicious and was perfect in this Israeli Couscous with Shrimp and Asparagus dish.
Their vegetables are 100% USDA Certified Organic. They are flash frozen very soon after harvest to ensure a bold, straight-from-the-garden flavor that cannot be rivaled. They also carry many convenient items and prepared meals including chicken nuggets, battered fish tenders and premium crab-cakes, stuffed turkey breasts and pork chops, marinated meats, pre-smoked BBQ entrees, homemade pastas and other Italian specialties.
I love to use the battered fish tenders for easy, ready-in-minutes, fish tacos.
Just recently, I used products from Passanante’s Home Food Services to make delicious Pork Chop Milanese with a side of sautéed corn and cannelini beans.
Pork Chop Milanese is made with a “milanese-style” preparation which basically involves a meat chop (pork, veal, chicken cutlet or steak) that is dipped in egg wash, then bread crumbs and fried in a shallow pan of oil.
The result is a beautifully brown cutlet that is juicy inside but crispy on the outside for a rustic and comforting dish.
I love to pair the Pork Chop Milanese with a fresh salad or a light side dish like sautéed corn and cannelini beans.
- 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
- 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
- 2 large eggs
- 4-6 boneless pork loin chops, thin
- garlic powder, for light seasoning
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Coarsely crush the panko into a large shallow bowl. Stir the cheese into the panko.Beat the eggs in another large shallow bowl. Sprinkle the pork generously with, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Dip the pork chops, allowing the excess to drip off, then dredge the pork in the crumb mixture, patting to coat completely. Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pork in small batches, being careful not to crowd the pan, until golden brown and just cooked through. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with side of choice.
Just think, couldn’t we all use a little less time spent at the grocery store? With Passanante’s Home and Food Services, you can get fine, quality meats, poultry, seafood and more delivered straight to your door, saving you on time and money spent from limiting impulse grocery store buys. It has been a lifesaver for this working momma.
