Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 250°. Put the flour, beaten eggs and panko in three separate shallow dishes. Mix a pinch of salt and pepper into each dish. Season the pork generously with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece of pork in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the pork in the egg, letting any excess drip back into the dish, then roll it in the panko to coat. Set the pork on a baking sheet. Repeat to coat the apple rings.

  • In a large skillet, heat 1 cup of the peanut oil until a pinch of panko dropped in bubbles rapidly. Add 2 pieces of pork and fry, turning once, until golden brown all over, about 7 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining 2 pieces of pork. Transfer the pork to a rack set over a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.

  • Add the remaining 1/3 cup of oil to the skillet. When the oil is hot, add the apple slices and fry them until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Place the crispy pork and apple rings on a platter, garnish with the lemon wedges and serve.
