How To Make Lemon Pork with Mushroom

Lemon Pork with Mushroom Recipe

Ingredients :
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
8 thin boneless pork loin chops (2 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Lemon wedges, optional

Place egg and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper; dip in egg, then coat with crumbs, pressing to adhere.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. In batches, cook pork until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan; keep warm.
Wipe pan clean. In skillet, heat butter over medium heat; saute mushrooms until tender, 2-3 minutes. Stir in garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice; cook and stir 1 minute. Serve over pork. If desired, serve with lemon wedges.

Test Kitchen tips :
When adding a crumb coating, keep one hand for the wet ingredients (pork chops and eggs) and the other for the dry ingredients (crumb mixture) for less mess.
A 1-pound pork tenderloin can be substituted for the pork chops. Cut the tenderloin into 8 slices then pound to 1/4-in. thickness.
Cooking the pork chops in batches keeps them from overcrowding the pan. More space means less steam and a crispier crust.
