Is there anything more tasty than meat that's been breaded and fried? We say no, and we prove it here, frying up a pork chop in crispy panko to a crunchy perfection on the outside, but still a tender juicy piece of meat on the inside. Topped with slightly spicy, all-the-way amazing tomato sauce, this pork proves all the doubters wrong. (Are there doubters? We doubt it.)
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions
If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 2, frying, flipping occasionally, until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-14 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt.
Place panko on a plate in an even layer. Place pork on panko, flipping until coated, pressing gently to adhere.
Fry the Pork Chops
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and let heat, 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of panko to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
Lay pork chops away from you in hot oil and flip every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-14 minutes.
Transfer pork to towel-lined plate. Season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt. Rest, at least 5 minutes.
While pork cooks, cook vegetables.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add broccoli and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Cover, and cook until water is almost completely evaporated, 4-5 minutes.
If pan is dry, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time. Uncover, and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in mushrooms, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cook until water is evaporated and mushrooms are golden brown, 3-5 minutes
Remove from burner and sprinkle with Parmesan.
Make the Tomato Sauce
Place a small pot over medium-low heat. Add tomatoes and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pot. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, add seasoning blend, ¼ tsp. salt, and red pepper flakes (to taste). Simmer until liquid reduces slightly, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
