Recently, I made a realization – I don’t love steak as much as I thought I did. Until recently, I thought I liked steak a lot more. But after having steak several times at a restaurant, I realized – steak really isn’t my favorite meat. I’m very picky about how my steak is cooked, and if it’s not perfectly medium well…then I don’t care for it. If it’s too pink, it makes me sick…and if it’s too done? Well, it just doesn’t taste good!
Upon making this realization, I discovered something else – I love pork chops. Sure, they can easily be overdone, and an overcooked pork chop is rather unappetizing…but boy, when they are cooked well? They are so good. Last year, I shared some tips for cooking a perfect pork chop, and this method has yet to let me down.
So, I love pork chops. We had them for New Year’s Eve, and I couldn’t help but take 1/2 of a second one, because it just tasted so good. I typically don’t take seconds of meat…but I just couldn’t help it!
Anyways, a few weeks ago, we were sent a sample of Omaha Steaks foods, including a package of pork chops. While I enjoyed all of the goods (especially the loaded potatoes), including their top-of-the-line steaks, the pork chops were defintely my favorite. They weren’t too thick, nor too thin, and they had a great flavor. I believe that using high quality meat is not only important for your health but for your taste buds too. Omaha Steak Company is definitely the way to go (I’m always seeing Groupons for them, so keep your eyes on the lookout!)
Anyways. These Panko crusted pork chops? To die for. They are SO easy – almost impossible to mess up. They come together super quickly and only require three ingredients – pork chops, seasoned panko, and some oil to fry them in. It doesn’t get much easier than that! They are gluten free and low FODMAP friendly so long as you use gluten free seasoned Panko bread crumbs.
