Crispy Panko Pork Chop with Quick-Pickled Cucumber & Buttered CousCous
By using the Japanese-style breadcrumbs known as panko, you get an extra-crispy coating to your tender pork chops, which are perfectly accompanied by tangy cucumbers and buttery couscous. The “quick-pickle” technique is not only an easy way give your veggies more zesty flavor, but also a tasty way to preserve them for several weeks in your fridge (which comes in handy for an especially abundant garden!). Pearl (or Israeli) couscous differs from regular couscous in that its “grains” are much larger and have nuttier flavor since they’re toasted rather than dried. With such a delightful combination of flavors and textures, this dish is built to please.
