Since its founding in 1999, Dempsey’s has become a Watertown institution. This family business is famous for its pizza and European-inspired menu. This month, owner Sean Dempsey, son of founders Bill and Lyne, shares two of the eatery’s signature offerings, perfect for serving to holiday guests.
1 lb Boneless pork loin
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
Panko or breadcrumbs
1/2 C Whole milk
1 C Unbleached flour
4 oz Unsalted butter
Filet fat cap and side fat from pork loin.
Cut into 5 oz filets.
Use a meat mallet and lightly tenderize pork filets until they double in size.
In three separate bowls put flour, egg wash (egg and milk), and panko (mixed with seasonings).
Dip pork into flour, then egg wash, then breadcrumbs.
Melt butter in saute pan.
Add pork fillets and cook for roughly two minutes per side, until golden brown.
