> 2 large eggs

> 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
> 4 boneless pork chops
> 4 tbsp olive oil
> 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
> 8 oz fresh mozzarella

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. On a large plate, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, salt (in moderation), and pepper. Add the pork to the eggs and toss to coat. Remove each chop from egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Coat with bread crumb mixture, pressing to adhere.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the vinegar to a simmer. Cook 8 min., until syrupy.
