It’s easy enough to get the German restaurant staples, which is why this month we wanted to do things a bit differently with some traditional homestyle cooking! And there’s no better go-to than this easy recipe for breaded pork chops, just like Oma used to make! It may seem simple at first, but once you take a bite of these juicy, savory, butter-y chops, you’ll be shouting “lecker!”

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 35 mins
Serves: 4


  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ cups bread crumbs
  • ¾ teaspoon seasoned salt 
  • Butter for frying (at least 2 tbsp)
  • 4 pork chops, 1-inch thick and trimmed


  1. Beat the egg with 1 tbsp water in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  2. Combine bread crumbs and seasoned salt in a shallow bowl. Set aside. 
  3. Heat 2 tbsp butter in a large flat-bottomed frying pan over high heat.
  4. While the pan heats up, first dredge the pork chops in the bread crumb mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, then re-coat with more bread crumbs. 
  5. Carefully place each pork chop into the frying pan. Add extra butter if it no longer coats the bottom of the pan.
  6. Flip the chops when nicely browned on one side, about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Cover the frying pan, then lower heat to medium low. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until browned. Turn once or twice during cooking. Time may vary depending on size.
  8. Transfer the fried pork chops to a plate lined with paper towels before serving.
