- 1 pork loin (flilet, trimmed)
- 1/2 cup flour (seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
- 1 eggs
- 1 tablespoon whole milk (or 2% milk)
- 2 teaspoons seasoning (Thai, Stir-in Paste, such as Gourmet Gardens)
- 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- neutral oil
- Slice pork loin into 1-inch filets, and lightly season with salt and pepper.
- Mix together flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder well. In a separate dish, whisk together egg, milk, and Thai seasoning paste. Add panko to another dish.
- Take the pork filets and coat them well with the flour, then in egg wash, and then panko. Set aside on a clean plate, and repeat until all of the filets are covered.
- Place the oil into the pan and heat to 350 degrees F. (about 1-inch of oil). Fry pork filets until golden brown and the internal temperature reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F (medium). Remove from pan and rest for 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
