Pan Fried Parmesan Pork Chops with Cheesy Baked Asparagus is WAY easier than it sounds. This is an easy weeknight supper that tastes like a Sunday sit down dinner. Let’s do it!

Put a skillet, that is just large enough to handle the pork chops, on at medium high with just enough vegetable oil to be about 1/4″ deep. Pre heat the oven to 350°F . First get the Parmesan breading ready. In a shallow bowl put the bread crumbs, salt and pepper, garlic powder, dried basil and the parmesan cheese. Whisk it all together.

In another shallow bowl whisk together one large egg and about 1/4 cup of milk.

Cut about an inch off the stem end of the asparagus spears and rinse them off. Pat them dry and spread them out on a cookie sheet. Lightly drizzle them with some olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and grated parmesan cheese. Gently toss the spears by hand right in the pan until they all are coated with the oil and stuff.

Put them in the pan and depending on the thickness cook until they are browned and done the way you like. If you press in the center of the meat and it is still soft it is too rare for pork. If it is not totally firm and has just a little bit of give to your poke it is pink in the middle aka medium well. If it is firm it is well done without any pink in the middle.
