  • Step 1, Pat the pork tenderloin loose and slightly thinner with the back of a knife or meat beater, and cut off the irregular meat around it. It’s best that each piece of meat is about the same size. Don’t beat it too hard or too thin. Otherwise, the fried meat is not thick enough and doesn’t taste good.
  • Step 2, Take two pieces of meat of the same size and fold a piece of ham on the meat. The ham is smaller than the meat.
  • Step 3, Another piece of cheese is smaller than the meat.
  • Step 4, Put a layer of starch on the periphery of the pork tenderloin. If it is too dry and not sticky, you can dip it in a little water.
  • Step 5, Then put the two pieces of meat together and press the outer circle tightly with a little force. Otherwise, it is easy to spread when frying, and the meat cheese will leak out.
  • Step 6, Dip the meat with a layer of flour and dip it evenly. When you pick it up, pat the meat slightly and pat off the excess flour.
  • Step 7, The meat stained with flour is coated with egg liquid.
  • Step 8, Finally, dip a layer of bread crumbs. When dipping bread crumbs, you can press them with some force to make the bread crumbs stick more solid. Repeat pressing the front and back several times until you can’t see the flesh. When you pick it up, pat the flesh slightly and pat off the excess bread crumbs.
  • Step 9, Heat the oil in the pot and fry over medium heat for about 3 ~ 5 minutes (the frying time depends on the size of the meat). In this process, turn over and fry evenly. When the color is about to turn golden yellow, turn the fire up to raise the oil temperature, so as to force the oil out of the meat (about 30 seconds), and then fry the pork chops out of the pot.
