Pork Loin and Fried Rice

Posted by JMom | Monday, May 08, 2006 | , , | 4 comments »


Here's another simple and fast weekday meal which is a step better than the usual pork chop. This recipe uses pork loin cut into cutlets. This cut has less fat and cooks much faster than the bone-in chop variety. This whole meal can be prepared in less than an hour. What I do to save time is to wash and cut up the pork loin prior to freezing so that it's ready to just batter and fry up when dinner time comes. Paired with garlic fried rice made from left over rice and steamed broccoli and you have another quick, easy and nutritious meal.

To make the fried pork loin, simply moisten the cutlets in beaten egg, dredge in bread crumbs seasoned with garlic powder, salt, pepper and dried basil; and pan-fry until they are golden brown. Very simple!

    Hi rowena! thanks, but my planning and executing is really out of necessity :-) and well, you know it's gotta be tasty :-)

    Hi PPG! sure, you can come by anytime! and make sure you bring that little bubuy with you. I hear his tagalog has gotten even better. Maybe he can come and tutor my girls :-)
