Crispy Pork Chops with Roasted Fennel, Radishes, Shallots, & White Wine Sauce

  • 1 lb thin pork chops (boneless)
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, whisked with salt & pepper
  • 2 fennel bulbs, quartered and sliced (reserve fronds for garnish)

For the white wine sauce;

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock, mixed with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
Preheat oven to 375. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Drop in egg mixture, then coat in breadcrumbs. Bake in oven for about 35 minutes, or until fully cooked.

Toss sliced fennel, radish, and shallots in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place vegetables on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes.

Time to make the white wine sauce! Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add in shallots and garlic. Saute until translucent. Whisk in white wine and let reduce slightly. Now whisk in vegetable stock. Let come to a boil and thicken slightly. Season with salt, pepper, and a few minced fennel fronds.
