Greetings! I decided to make some pork loin chops for dinner this evening and I was going to use the box of Shake and Bake, because it was quick and easy. I decided to read the ingredients, and while it really wasn’t that bad, it still has “spices” and yeast extract and a couple other things that I figured we didn’t need. So I’ll put this box in the pantry and give it to the food bank when the school has their holiday food drive.
I threw together this quick and easy coating mix with little effort and it was simply delicious! I used spices to compliment the pork but you could use this for chicken or even cubed steaks. It was quick easy and delicious. I will use this coating mix from now on and forgo the corporate store bought creation that is kind of expensive to begin with.
You can use good quality store bought bread crumbs or some of your own homemade bread crumbs along with spices of your choice. I used about 2 cups of bread crumb and 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and poultry seasoning. I also added 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil and blended it all up in a plastic bag until it looked just like the store bought stuff.
I simply used it like I would the regular coating mix, and baked my pork chops for 30 minutes. They were succulent and flavorful!
I hope you give this idea a try the next time you want to “oven fry” a delicious cut of meat like pork chops, chicken or even round steak!
I hope you try this and I hope you love it!
