Crunchy Pork Chops and Salad

Recipe 174 - Crunchy pork chops with garlicky spinach and tomato salad

Weird ingredients and substitutes: I hope that by breadcrumbs, Nigella means breadcrumbs that came out of a packet and flavoured with italian spices. Because that's what I used. Unfortunately, I only had one tomato left in the fridge, so had to cut down on the salad quantity.

Preparation: Trim and beat pork chops. This was quite fun. Dip into egg mixture and then parmesaned breadcrumbs.

Cooking process: Fry pork chops. In the meantime, deseed tomato and dice. Add garlic, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and spinach.

End result: This was delicious. The pork chops were crunchy (a little oily though), and it would have been nice if there was more salad to counter-balance the slab of meat. Oh well, next time.

Repeatability: Yes.

Cost: $10 for both of us.

Mess: There was a bit of mess created when frying, a few oil splatters here and there.

Special utensils: A meat basher.
