    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Pound the pork chops with a meat mallet until about 1cm thick; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Press the pork into the breadcrumb mixture to coat thoroughly; set aside.
    2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour in the wine and sliced mushrooms. Allow to simmer and cook until the mushrooms have softened, about 10 minutes. Stir together the cornflour and water, then add to the mushroom sauce. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, then remove from the heat and set aside.
    3. Meanwhile, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large, nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Fry the prepared pork a few pieces at a time until golden brown and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve with reserved mushroom sauce.

    Husband loved it! I used red wine instead and left out the cheese. Yum.  -  23 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    What an easy and tasty recipe. Following the advice of another reviewer, I did flour, egg and bread the cutlets and fry them first in olive oil. Removing them and picking up the recipe adding butter and garlic. I started out with 1/2 inch cutlets and pounded down to a 1/4". Frying them about 4 minutes per side. So nice to have a different recipe for pork cutlets.  -  27 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
