A Dog's Life

Hey guys, I'm still working on the wordpress move. I've been so busy lately sometimes all I want to do is chill out like our old man in this picture, Mana. He's getting old and well, all he does is eat, sleep and poop. It must be so nice to live a dog's life. 

Moving To Wordpress

Hey everyone! I'll be a bit M.I.A. this week because I decided to move to wordpress and get my own domain as well. It's scary because I've used the blogger platform for so long. Anyway, I hope to have the new site up in a week or so. See ya there soon!

Panko and Furikake Pork Chops

I'm so excited to be finally sharing a recipe after so long! This is a recipe I came up with because we use this type of breading for a lot of our dishes at home. I thought why not use it with pork chops? It's super easy and yummy!

Ok first, did I mention that i'm using center loin chops. Use whatever you like, but the thickness of these were about 3/4". Here's a hint, buy them from the frozen section if you want to save some money. Less than $4.00 for 4 pieces! Remember, thaw out your pork till it reaches room temperature. This way they cook evenly.

Here's your station. Sorry I didn't place the bowls in the right order. I numbered them here:
1. Dredge in all purpose flour. Coat pork on both sides evenly and shake out excess flour. 2. Dip in egg mixture. 3. Dip in crumb mixture. Then fry on both sides for about 4 minutes. Let them rest on a rack for at least 10 minutes then enjoy!
