Ingredients

  • 3 boneless pork chops
  • 3 tablespoons Cajun spice mix
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • cooking oil
  • 3 hamburger buns preferably toasted on both sides
  • shredded lettuce
  • onion gravy
  • toasted sesame seeds optional

Instructions

  • If your pork chops are thicker than half an inch, lay them on a flat surface and pound with a mallet until they are about half an inch thick.
  • Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels.
  • Rub Cajun spice mix evenly on both sides of the pork chops.
  • Place the seasoned pork chops in a covered container and leave to marinate overnight in the fridge.
  • Place the flour in a shallow bowl.
  • Beat the egg in another shallow bowl.
  • Spread the panko in a third shallow bowl.
  • Dredge each pork chop in flour (shake off the excess), dip in egg (make sure every inch of the surface is covered) then roll in panko.
  • In a frying pan, heat enough cooking oil to reach a depth of at least two inches. Keep the heat on medium low.
  • Fry the pork chops on both sides (three to four minutes per side), flipping them midway through the cooking.
  • Remove the cooked pork chops from the oil and rest on a rack.
  • Lay the bottom halves of the buns on plates and line with shredded lettuce.
  • Place a pork chop on each of the lettuce-line bottom halves of the buns.
  • Drizzle gravy over the chops and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before placing the top halves of the buns in place.
