There are many delicious ways to prepare and serve D'Artagnan's Berkshire Milanese pork chops.
One popular method is to pound the chop slightly so that it's uniform in thickness, then pan-fry it after seasoning with salt and pepper and coating it in a mixture of flour, egg, and panko breadcrumbs. Known as Milanese style, this method creates a crispy coating that perfectly complements the tender and juicy meat.
Another option is to grill after brushing the chops with olive oil and seasoning with salt, pepper, and fresh thyme. This imparts a smoky flavor to the pork while allowing its natural flavor to shine through.
Regardless of which cooking method you choose, it's important to let the pork chop rest before slicing it to ensure that it stays juicy and tender. Whether you're serving it alongside a salad, mashed potatoes, or other sides, the Berkshire Milanese Pork Chop is sure to be a hit with your guests.
Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. The cooperative of small family farmers that raises our Berkshire hogs is dedicated to traditional methods, allowing hogs to feed on pasture, with access to water and supplemental grain consisting of corn, soybeans and rolled oats. No pesticides, animal by-products or fishmeal are allowed. The majority of the farms are sustainable "circle farms" that raise and grind their own feed for the pigs.
Families of pigs are left together, to forage and frolic outdoors on pasture. The indoor spaces offer at least 15 square feet of space per animal, and sows are never put in gestation crates.
The cooperative is strict about banning the use of antibiotics and hormones* on each farm and limiting the number of hogs the farms raise. They seek to add another farmer to the cooperative before they add more pigs to any one farm, making the process more humane for all concerned.
