Parmesan Encrusted Pork Loin

Recipe by Chef BinksCourse: DinnerDifficulty: Easy


Prep time




  • 3/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Basil

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano

  • Ground Black Pepper, to Taste

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Thyme Leaves

  • 1/4 Cup Dijon Mustard

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 2 lb Pork Loin


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, oil, and spices to make a paste,
  • Season the pork chops with pepper, then put your paste on top of the chops with the mustard mixture.
  • Press the grated parmesan cheese into both sides of the chops. This is a great way to get flavor into the meat without all the added sugar of a marinade. This cooking style literally drains most of the fat right off into the pan. Don’t forget to trim any remaining fat once it’s on your plate.
  • Place the chops on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. The coating should be browned and slightly crispy with a nice seared crust and the pork should be cooked all the way through.
