Method

  1. Trim the fat from the steaks, then place, one at a time, between 2 pieces of baking parchment and bash with a rolling pin or meat mallet until about 5mm thick. Set aside.
  2. Put the bread, lemon zest, Parmesan, pine nuts and rosemary leaves in the bowl of a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
  3. Spread the flour onto a plate and put the egg in a shallow bowl. Season the pork, then dust in flour. Dip each steak into the egg, then press into the crumbs, coating evenly. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the pork for 2-3 mins each side until golden and crunchy. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Really good easy delicious and quick recipe. Served with celeriac remoulade and it was an incredibly impressive midweek dinner.

I made this recipe last night and it was delicious....The pine nuts gave it a lovely smell and texture . I served it with a spicy tomato pasta with a hint of garlic and the tastes and textures together were really fresh... I'll definitely make again.

Very nice. It took longer than 6 minutes to cook though!

Here here Summers!

Well good flavours, didn't feel healthy for it afterwards, just fancied something different and this was. Very good all the same, i'm tempted by using chicken next time.

Really nice. Did it with chicken and it took a bit longer. Next time I'll cut the chicken in half before making them thinner.

Really quick and easy to make.

Used gluten free bread and dried rosemary. Served with salad.
Will make again.

once the breadcrumbs had were sealed I then transferred them to a baking tray and finished the recipe in the oven.

Awesome,
Tried this with chicken a few weeks ago, the family loved it! Doing it again today with my own spin - having marinated the chicken for a few hours in lemon juice salt pepper, minced onion and garlic - then onto the recipe as it stands.

I made this with chicken instead of pork for a dinner party and served it with sweet potato wedges and salad. Went down very well!

Enjoyed this dish immensely. I substituted brown for white too as a preference and served it with celeriac mash and roasted tomatoes, delicious. Does need seasoning in the breadcrumbs rather thsn on the meat, to really bring it alive in the mouth. Would happily serve it again

Made these yesterday. I used brown bread instead of white as we prefer it and as I didn't have pine nuts I just used small mixed nuts but it still tasted okay. Will try pine nuts another time.We loved them.

Loved this recipe. The only change I made was to use gluten free bread for the crumbs. But apart from that, followed the recipe to the letter and will do so again and again...

My family really enjoyed this dish, I didn't have any pine nuts so next time i will include them, the lemon gave it a lovely fresh flavour. I will certainly be making this again !
