Sesame Pork Milanese

Pounding the pork chops thin helps speed the cooking process, allowing you to pull this whole dish together in just 30 minutes. If you don’t have a meat mallet you can use a heavy skillet, instead.

4 boneless pork chops (about 6 ounces each)
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 3/4 cups panko
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 teaspoons white miso paste
1-5 ounces package mixed baby spinach and arugula
3 carrots, grated
1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved

Pound the pork chops with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until about 1/4 inch thick; season with salt and pepper. Put the flour in a shallow baking dish. Whisk the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a second dish. Put the panko in a third dish. Working with 1 chop at a time, coat in the flour and then dip in the egg, shaking off any excess; firmly press both sides in the panko.

Heat about 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot (a breadcrumb should instantly sizzle in the oil). Working in batches, fry the chops, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to drain; season with salt. (Add more oil to the skillet between batches if needed to maintain a thin layer.)

While the chops cook, whisk the vinegar, miso, 2 teaspoons vegetable oil and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil in a large bowl until smooth. Add the greens, carrots and tomatoes and toss; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the pork chops.
