    Excellent recipe... very tasty & moist - and easy! Both my husband and I enjoyed the chops. My picky eater son thought the chili powder was too strong. I'm not convinced, LOL - but next time, I 'may' leave it out just to prove his point (or mine)! :) Thank you for sharing!

    I used two extra-thick, Porterhouse chops for this recipe. I dry brined them for about 6 hours. I did not use the egg dip; rather, I just dredged the chops in the crumb mixture. It stuck just fine. I baked them on a rack at 350? for 40 minutes and let them rest, tented with foil for 10 minutes. The seasonings on the chops really make this dish; the spiciness really came through. We greatly enjoyed the taste and texture of these chops. I have added the recipe to my keeper list noting my few changes.

    This was Great, and was quick and easy to make. It was indeed spicy, but that was what I wanted. I'll certainly make it again soon.

    Very good! A little spicy, next time I might tone it down a bit. Spice takes away from the flavor of the crush, which was really good. Will def make again.
