Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • Pepper
  • 4 1 inches thick pork chops
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Using a food processor, finely grind the nuts, garlic, lemon peel and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a shallow bowl; whisk in the breadcrumbs.

Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Dip each chop into the egg, then coat with the nut mixture; transfer to a baking sheet.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chops and cook until golden, about 2 minutes on each side; return to the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 140 degrees , about 20 minutes.
