Think of the breading as a wick (Capillary action) that pulls the moisture to the surface where it can be cooked off. If the moisture is on the meat under the coating when it steams it will push that coating off.

breadcrumbs, herbs, pork, recipe

Breaded Pork Loin Cutlets I have been trying to nail the seasonings for KFC chicken for years. Last night, I was preparing a seasoned breadcrumb coating for pork loin cutlets, and got the KFC taste. With the pork, it came out wonderful, and so, I have to share. Preheat your oven to 360' F Set up a breading station with two wide bowls, filled from left to right with the following; AP Flour, Egg Wash, and a shaker bag of Seasoned Breadcrumbs. The flour is unseasoned. The egg-wash is simply 1 large egg combined with a splash of milk. The breadcrumbs are seasoned like this: 1 cup breadcrumbs 1 tsp. dried oregano 1 tsp. dried basil 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tbs. ground pepper 1/2 tsp. MSG 2 dashes dried ginger 1/4 tsp. dried marjoram 1/4 tsp. dried thyme 1/2 tsp. celery seed 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic 1 tsp. paprika Combine well. Make sure the cutlets are moist. Dredge in the flour until evenly coated. Gently knock of excess flour. Place into the egg-wash and flip to completely coat. Place in shaker back and shake until evenly coated. Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 360' F for 30,minutes. Serve with your favorite sides.:chef:ade. The flavor is better than with chicken. Oh, and just as an experiment, I used left-over smashed spuds, seasoned with the same herbs and spices, with some left over ground beef, and a raw egg added, and made potato pancakes this morning. They also came out very good. I can see this flavor combination used for gravies, with lamb, veal, turkey, and chicken. I would think you could also make a seasoned flour, if you didn't want to use the breadcrumbs. Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
