Pork chops with mother love

Mom’s Savory Pork Chops. Photograph by Sebastian Flores.

My mom is 100 percent Italian but never had any interest in cooking. When she was growing up, my grandma did all the cooking and no one was allowed in her kitchen.

However, my mom did make some American dishes that were good. Once a week, she would make her famous breaded pork chops. They were tasty and easy to make. She taught me at age 12, and I took over and have been making them ever since. This is a no-fuss easy recipe, so enjoy.


 4 boneless pork chops
 2 eggs
 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
 1½ cups beef broth
 1 teaspoon veal stock
 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
 salt and pepper (as desired)
 3 tablespoons olive oil
 1 tablespoon butter
→ 1 clove garlic


1. Salt and pepper pork chops.
2. Beat eggs and drench pork chops in egg batter, draining off excess.
 3. Coat pork chops in breadcrumbs, shaking off excess. 
 4. Heat olive oil and butter in frying pan.
5. Brown chops about 2 minutes on each side.
6. Add beef broth, veal stock and garlic.
 7. Simmer covered about 20 minutes.
 8. Garnish with chopped parsley.
 9. Serve with rice.
