Cheap and Easy Recipes: Pork Loin Chops 2 Ways

So here is an installment of my cheap and easy recipes. Pork Loin is something that is good for you and cheap. First, I get my pork loin chops at Costco. Usually it is 9 to a tray. I then cut them in half because they start about 1 1/2 inches thick. BTW, June 19th-June 25th there is a Passport Coupon at Costco for $5 off (an even better deal!).
Baked Pork Loin:
I take 1/2 bottle of Lawry’s Marinade (any liquid marinade would do) and marinade for anywhere from 20 minutes to hours. Then preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put into any lipped baking dish. Pop it in the oven for 25 minutes and you are done!
Breaded Pork Loin:
This takes just a bit more effort. Make a mixture of 2:1 seasoned bread crumbs to shredded parmesan cheese. To save time, buy your pamesan preshredded in the deli area. Get a large skillet or griddle and heat it up at medium high heat. Bread both sides of the pork loin chop and put it the lightly oil skillet. Cook until done. One way to see if the pork is cooked through is to watch the side. When it is completely white and the pork is firm to the touch, it is done. Usually about 7 minutes a side.

And that is it. 2 easy and different ways to make pork loin chops!
