Tonight I made something that I haven’t made in quite some time, tenderloins! I love tenderloins and will order them from time to time when we go out. However, they always taste better when you make them yourself.
This meal is semi-homemade. I pick up some tenderized pork chops and the cracker of choice. This is where the fun begins. You can change up the taste however you like. Tonight I used Cheez-its, but you could use Ritz, Clubs, Chicken ‘n Biscuits or whatever your favorite cracker is. There is no wrong answer!
I start with the crackers and put them in a baggie and turn them into crumbs with my rolling pin. Gently roll them out while being careful not put holes in the bag.
The chops I purchased have already been tenderized. This is a nice time saver. I set up my dipping station and get busy. The Cheez-it’s have the taste I’m looking for so the only seasoning I add is pepper.
I dip the chops in the egg and then into the cracker crumbs.
I fry them in my cast iron skillet until the tenderloin starts to turn white all around the edges and then they are flipped and cooked for a few more minutes.
Do you like the crocheted handler I made? This is a hotpad that fits right over the handle of the cast iron skillet.
Dinner is ready! I put some mayo and garden fresh tomato on mine served with some homemade baked mac & cheese. It was very yummy!!
You have to make these soon and use your favorite cracker. It will soon be a family favorite!
