Bottom-of-the-Box Crushed Cracker Pork
Get the kids involved with this fun recipe from Heidi Morris that was an honorable mention for the "No Recipe" recipe contest. A good finger food to serve with your favorite dipping sauce like ranch dressing or barbecue sauce.
1 pound pork tenderloin
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon steak sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup finely crushed cheese crackers
2 tablespoons vegetable oil - divided use
- Combine egg, steak sauce and garlic powder in a shallow dish. Place crushed crackers in another shallow dish.
- Cut tenderloin crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Pound or flatten slices with the heal of your hand to 1/4-inch thickness. Dip each slice first into egg mixture, then cracker crumbs, turning to coat.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add half of pork slices and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until browned. Repeat with remaining oil and pork slices (or use 2 skillets at one time).
Makes 4 servings.
