- 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
- 2 large eggs
- 3 boneless pork loin chops, pounded to ⅓-inch thick
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
Place the panko into a large shallow bowl. Lightly beat the eggs in another large shallow bowl. Season pork with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour.
Dip the pork, 1 piece at a time, in the egg, allowing the excess to drip off, then dredge the pork in the bread crumbs, patting to coat completely. Place the pork on a small baking sheet.
Fill a large heavy skillet with vegetable oil to a depth of ¼–½ inch, and heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork to the hot oil and cook until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain, then serve immediately with lemon wedges.
