Wasabi Crusted Pork Chops

Need a Hand
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 2


  • 2 pork chops
  • ½ Cup wasabi flavored peas
  • ¼ Cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp prepared wasabi
  • ½ tsp crushed garlic
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • A few dashes of fresh ground pepper
  • 1 TBSP vegetable oil


To start:

  • Mix the egg, prepared wasabi, and crushed garlic in a small bowl.
  • Using a food processor, blender, or plastic bag and flat pan, crush the wasabi flavored peas until finely ground about the consistency of the panko breadcrumbs.
  • On a plate, mix the wasabi pea crumbs and breadcrumbs with salt and pepper.

Coat the Pork Chops:

  • Take one pork chop and coat in egg mixture.
  • Then coat the pork chop in the breading mixture by first placing the pork chop on top of the breading mixture.
  • Move some breading mixture on top of the pork chop and pat to get good adherence.
  • Turn the pork chop over and repeat the last step.
  • Set aside on another plate.
  • Repeat for the other pork chop.

Prepare the Pan:

  • In a small sauté pan, warm the vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  • Do not allow the oil to smoke.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully add each pork chop.
  • Allow to cook halfway.
  • Turn the heat down if necessary, e.g., if the crust is becoming too dark before the pork chops are cooked halfway through.
  • Carefully turn the pork chops over and allow to finish cooking.
  • The length of time the pork chop will take a different amount of time to cook depending on the thickness.
  • Remove from heat and allow to drain on a paper towel for a moment before transferring to the serving plate.
