Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (32 votes)

In this Italian-inspired healthy pork Milanese recipe, you’ll swear that these crispy pork medallions were deep-fried, when in fact they're cooked with a nonstick skillet and a mere 3 tablespoons of healthy extra-virgin olive oil. While the pork and sweet potatoes are cooking, steam broccoli or green beans and serve with a squeeze of lemon to round out the meal.

Very tasty!

This was very tasty and pretty quick for a weeknight dinner. I used panko bread crumbs and it came out very nicely crisp. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it tasted good, although I think the sweet potatoes on their own would be fine too. I used 1/2 to 1 tsp. dried sage and the flavor didn't really come through - I might use more next time. I was tempted to bake the pork chops, but I'm glad I cooked them on the stovetop since they came out crispy. I would probably cook them in two batches next time. I would definitely make again.

Very Tasty!

I made this tonight using boneless pork chops. Easy to make. The sweet potatoes were really good. I never made them in the microwave before and the sour cream gave them a great taste. I didn't have enough bread crumbs so I toasted two pieces of wheat toast and ground them in my cuisinart mini chopper. Worked out great and made it even healthier. I will definitely make this again.

Pork was tender, mashed sweet potatoes were delicious!
Incredibly simple but tasty pork

I only made the pork (not the sweet potato mash) and wondered if it would be bland since the only seasonings were salt/pepper and there was no sauce. However, it was very tasty. I used Panko bread crumbs (unseasoned) and followed the recipe exactly. I breaded the pork ahead of time, refrigerated it, brought it out and let it come to room temperature just before dinner. This made it so easy and quick. I will definitely make this again.

Easy, quick
