Parmesan Pork

There’s this delicious all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue restaurant in SF (Espetus Churrascaria) that we like to go to for special occasions. They bring round a variety of meats on a skewer and carve off what you want. Most of them are steak (and that’s what we go for) but last time we went they also had a very tasty pork covered in parmesan.


I’m always on the lookout for new things to cook for dinner (because I get bored easily but I’m also super picky) so I decided to try recreating the parmesan pork at home. My first attempt involved pan-frying and it didn’t work out so well but 2nd time round it worked out wonderfully. Here’s the ‘recipe’:

  • Boneless pork chop (between 1/2 and 1 per person)
  • Grated parmesan
  • Sea salt


Sprinkle a few salt crystals over the chops and let them sit while you prep the rest of the meal. Preheat the grill (broiler) to a medium heat (low if you only have 2 settings). Cut the pork into cubes and roll each piece in the parmesan, making sure each is well coated. Push the meat onto a skewer and grill for about 20 minutes on each side. That’s it, quick and easy! I served it with pesto pasta and broccolini but it would go well with so many other things. I’m pretty sure it would also work really nicely on the barbecue so I’ll have to try that later in the year!
