Blogging Day 105: Breaded Pork Loin with Mustard





I am a huge fan of breaded meat. Unforunately, most of the time it involves frying in oil, which just adds more fat.  Instead of using oil, this recipes says to rub the meat with mustard.  I used regular mustard, but I'm sure dijon, honey mustard, or any kind well do.



Alright, let's begin!

 




Ingredients:

Pork Loin
1/3c. mustard
3/4c. Italian bread crumbs
Wax paper (optional)







First, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

I set my meat up on a wax paper sheet, because this is going to get pretty messy. The wax paper is going to make it very easy to move around.

~~~~~~~~





I am not going to lie to you, this is the messiest part. Basically your are going to need to rub the whole pork loin with mustard. You probably could use a sauce brush, but the fastest way is to use your hands. Do not worry, you can always wash it off when your done.

Once done with spreading the mustard everywhere, pick-up and set the pork loin aside. Using, the wax paper pick-up securely by the corners.
~~~~~~~~



With a clean sheet of wax paper, spread out your bread crumbs.

~~~~~~~~





Drop the pork loin in the bread crumbs and proceed to cover the entire pork loin with crumbs.

~~~~~~~~



Once done, cook the pork loin for 30-45minutes. The pork loin is not done until the middle reaches 160 degrees, before that and you might have "extra" flavoring in your meat.
~~~~~~~~





Once the pork loin has reached the desired temperature, slice and serve.

I served this to my family and got a 4 out of 5 stars in yumminess.

~~~~~~~~

Now, seeing this as an awesome and less fattening way to add bread crumbs to food, I tried this on our veggies.




A good idea, but unfortunately, the bread crumbs did not stick and flavoring did not go very well. From my family it was given 2 out of 5 stars. An experiment, that unfortunately did not play out well, but maybe next time.

Have fun! Remember: Be creative, Be Imaginative and Make it your own!
