You and your family will surely love this pork Milanese recipe. It's a quick dinner recipe to make for any weeknight and it doesn't contain a long list of ingredients. This crispy pork cutlet is so cheap to make but fancy enough to serve at a dinner party.
With your hand at least 12 inches away, lightly sprinkle salt and black pepper on all sides of the meat in a single layer.
In a large bowl, season coarsely crush panko with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Stir to combine. In another bowl, lightly beat the egg.
Dip the meat in egg wash then gently shake off excess. After that, thoroughly coat the meat with breadcrumbs and shake off excess.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Gently lay the breaded pork in your pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. Turn the meat over when it's lightly golden browned, about 2 minutes on each side or longer until cooked through. Do not overcook.
Remove the cooked pork cutlet from the pan and set it on dry paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Let the pork rest for at least 3 minutes before serving. Serve with lemon wedges and/or arugula salad. Enjoy!
Be sure to use a food thermometer to check whether meat has reached a safe internal temperature (145°F) before removing meat from the heat source, with a three-minute rest time before serving.
Here's how to cook Pork Milanese in an air fryer
To double the recipe: If you are going to double this recipe, make sure that you change the oil and clean the pan before frying the second batch. I recommend a maximum of 3 pork chops per batch using the same oil, which will help keep the oil from burning.
- Follow #1, #2, #3
- Preheat the air fryer to 375°F.
- Spray the breaded pork with cooking spray or add about 1½ tablespoons of oil to the panko mixture before you dip the meat in.
- Place the breaded pork cutlets inside the air fryer basket, in a single layer.
- Cook for 5-6 minutes, flipping halfway through.
