Pork Chops Milanese Recipe

4 ½ inch pork chops with bone
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup finely ground bread crumbs, lightly toasted in the oven
¾ cup butter
Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black pepper
Sprigs of parsley for garnish and lemon wedges

1. “French” the bone of any fat or meat ,and trim away any fat, and cut the membranes around the chop since it will contract and make the cutlets curl up while cooking.
2. Flatten them out between the palms of your hands, or use a meat mallet or the bottom of your fist to flatten as for a cutlet, pat them dry, salt them lightly on both sides with sea salt.
3. Dip them in beaten whole eggs, dredge them in the bread crumbs, pressing down to make sure the crumbs stick, and shake them gently to remove excess.
4. Melt the butter in a skillet large enough to contain all 4 cutlets at once, and when it begins to sizzle add the cutlets. Cook quickly, turning once so both sides brown, garnish with parsley, serve with lemon wedges and sprinkle with the pepper.
