  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and warmed
  • Thinly sliced onion, optional
  • Pickle slices, optional
  • Prepared mustard, optional


  1. Place cornmeal in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, mix flour and spices; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pound chops with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness; season with salt and pepper.
  2. In two batches, heat oil in a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat chops with cornmeal. Dip in batter, allowing excess to drip off; place in skillet. Cook until golden brown, 2-4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve in buns, topping with remaining ingredients as desired.
