Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 4 people
- 4 pork chops bone-in thick 1-1/2"
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning optional
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp milk or water
- salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- 2-1/2 cups cranberries fresh or frozen, thawed
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 275°F.
Combine Panko, Italian bread crumbs, and Italian seasoning together in a shallow dish or plate.
Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
Beat eggs and milk together in a shallow dish.
Working one at a time, dip pork chop into the egg mixture and then dredge into bread crumbs. Put on a large plate or platter until all 4 are coated.
Cover the bottom of a cast iron skillet with olive oil. Heat until hot. I test with a piece of Panko. If it sizzles it's hot.
Place pork chops in the skillet. Cook on medium high approximately two minutes on each side or until browned. Turn over and repeat.
Place skillet in the oven. Check after 10 minutes with an instant-read thermometer. Once internal temperature reaches 150°. Remove from the skillet to stop cooking. Spoon sauce over pork chop and serve.
