Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 Pork Cutlets (tenderized if possible, if not... BAD CHICKEN!)
About a cup of flour
2 eggs
About a cup and a half breadcrumbs
1 head Iceberg Lettuce
Small yellow onion
Balsamic Vinegar
EVOO
Italian Seasoning

Directions:
Directions:
Spread the flour out on a plate.

Spread the breadcrumbs out on a different plate.

Beat the eggs in a bowl.

So this is really important... season the meat, season the flour, and season the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to taste.

This is a good time to start heating your olive oil. Pour about an 1/8th inch of oil in a large frying pan. Medium heat, if the oil smokes, it's too hot.

Now, dip the seasoned cutlets into the seasoned flour so it's completely covered.

Then dip the cutlets into the egg until completely covered.

Now into the breadcrumbs they go.

Fry the cutlets, 2 at a time if needed (don't crowd the pan.) I usually have an oven on "warm" to keep them warm if I'm doing this in batches.

Finely chop the lettuce and onion and put in a bowl.

Toss in oil first, then balsamic vinegar to taste ( also add Italian seasoning to the salad.)

Top the cutlets with the salad and serve.

Personal Notes:
So Cookie and Gregg went to a restaurant in New York City called Fernando's, with Charlie Newton (a restauranteur in OKC.) My mother ordered, and loved, this dish called "Pork Fernando." She loved it so much that Charlie figured out the recipe and offered in in his own restaurant in OKC, he called it "Port Chelin" after Mom.

As you know, this was a staple at our house. One day, after watching a scifi movie, the kids asked what I was making... I said "Alien."
