Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse pecans in a food processor until they resemble crumbs. Transfer to a shallow dish; add panko and cornstarch. Stir to blend.

  • Season pork chops with Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Coat both sides with Dijon mustard and honey. Add pork chops to the pecan mixture, one at a time, pressing with your fingertips to help the coating stick. Shake off any excess and transfer to a lined baking sheet.

  • Preheat a large saute pan over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Place butter and oil in the pan, then add pork. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) for medium. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This recipe is ok. If your chops are thick- 1 3/4 to 2 inches the crust will burn in the frying pan. I cooked them in the pan for 4 minutes each side, then finished in 350 degree oven ( 12 min). Definitely increase salt/seasoning. Read More

Good Flavor. Thin (1/2" chops) will take 2.5 - 3 mins/side. Thick cut chops (2+") will take much more than 5 mins per side- up to 8 mins/side on med heat. This will tend to over cook pecan coating. May need a little more salt to taste. Read More
