Sesame Pork Milanese

30-Minute Dinner Aug 19, 2021

Level: Easy
Total:30 min
Active:30 min
Yield:4 servings


4 boneless pork chops (about 6 ounces each)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 3/4 cups panko
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 teaspoons white miso paste
1 5-ounce package mixed baby spinach and arugula
3 carrots, grated
1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved


Pound the pork chops with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until about 1/4 inch thick; season with salt and pepper.
Put the flour in a shallow baking dish. Whisk the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a second dish.
Put the panko in a third dish. Working with 1 chop at a time, coat in the flour and then dip in the egg, shaking off any excess; firmly press both sides into the panko.
Heat about 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot (a breadcrumb should instantly sizzle in the oil).
Working in batches, fry the chops, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.
Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to drain; season with salt.
(Add more oil to the skillet between batches if needed to maintain a thin layer.)
While the chops cook, whisk the vinegar, miso, 2 teaspoons vegetable oil and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil in a large bowl until smooth.
Add the greens, carrots and tomatoes and toss; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the pork chops.
