Italian Seasoned Breaded Pork Chops

Italian Pork Chops Main Pic

These are Italian seasoned Breaded Pork chops that smother with Mozzarella cheese and fresh Parsley.  I pan fry each chop in Butter and Coconut oil to give it an added flavor that just melts in your mouth.  I use Cushion Pork, which is a Picnic Shoulder Roast, that makes these chops so tender you won’t even need a knife to cut them.  Plus, there is the added bonus, cutting your own chops instead of using the pre-packaged traditional Loin Chops saves you 2/3 the cost.

Pork Chop Ingredients:

1 pkg Cushion Pork(Shoulder Picnic) or cut Pork Chops
1 can Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1 egg
1 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese

How to Make Movie Theater Popcorn

I’ve researched Movie Theater Popcorn, the real stuff, and it’s very easy and simple to make. The problem is that the ingredients aren’t readily available at just any grocery store but there’s a way you can do it your self and still have it turn out the same if you have some of these ingredients below.

There’s virtually only 5 things you need to know.  What kind of Oil, Seasoning and Type of Corn to use and of course what Temperature and technique.  I say technique because it is possible to do this in a standard frying pan and still have it turn out great.

I use a 12″ deep dish pan with a lid and I cook dialed in to about a 7, on a scale of 1-10, on the stove top.  I use Butter flavored Coconut Oil, Flavacol popcorn salt(also butter flavored) and white, not yellow, popcorn kernels.  There are knock off oils and seasonings in grocery stores but the’re not at all the same.  So I ended up juggling a few sites between their outrageous shipping fees to order the salt and I have since found that making your own butter flavored coconut oil is virtually the same.  Besides, who needs a 5 gallon bucket of popping oil stored away in their cupboard.

Movie Theater Popcorn Ingredients:

3/4 cup White Popcorn Kernels
1/4 cup Butter flavored Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Butter flavored Flavacol Popcorn Salt

Melt and mix 1 part salted butter with 1 part coconut oil or use premade Butter flavored Coconut Oil.  Regular fine grain salt can replace the Butter flavored Flavacol popping salt if necessary.  But, if you can find it, it’s worth it and it makes all the difference in the world.

Lobster Sauce

If you’ve ever ordered Lobster Raviolis or pasta with a Lobster Sauce from an Italian Restaurant and they prepare it right, it truly is stunning.  It can be prepared several different ways but it usually always has cream.  You can even put roasted tomatoes in it if you’d like but I like it best prepared the way I show you in this video recipe.  There’s also a nice touch of almond in the sauce that tastes real sweet thanks to the added Amaretto.  You’ll swear you’ve died and gone to Italian Heaven.

Also, be sure to check out my Mussels Recipe down below and my Shrimp Scampi.  Both dishes are a fantastic side dish or appetizer to compliment any pasta recipe.  And if you’re interested in the Seafood Scissors I use to cut the Lobster Tails, CLICK HERE.
