Bottom of the Box Crushed Cracker Pork

Crushed Cracker Pork


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup cheese crackers, finely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided


  1. Combine egg, steak sauce and garlic powder in a shallow dish.
  2. Place crushed crackers in another shallow dish.
  3. Cut tenderloin crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Pound or flatten slices with the heal of your hand to 1/4-inch thickness. Dip each slice first into egg mixture, then cracker crumbs, turning to coat.
  4. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add half of pork slices and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until browned.
  5. Repeat with remaining oil and pork slices (or use 2 skillets at one time).
