Argentinian pork milanesas recipe

Hello everyone!!
I am here with a new post and this one is for a recipe, yayyy!!, no anxiety talk today guys! 🙂
In Argentina we call them ” Milanesas” and here in the US they are known as “milanese” ( At least that’s how they did at some Italian restaurant that I went a couple years ago) or simply “pork parmigiana” or “chicken parmigiana” ( the most common version).

I chose the pork version but you can do the same thing with chicken or beef, they are all delicious!
I will be making more cooking posts in the future but since I am eating paleo ( or almost paleo) at the moment there are many ingredients I like to experiment with that I cannot use.. ( meaning dairy and sugar) but I only have 2 more weeks of full paleo left so bear with me and then you can expect a wider variety of dishes featured here on my Blog!
So let get into the ” milanesas” recipe!

Ingredients ( I made a total of 7 milanesas)


* Thin pork tenderloins

* Bread crumbs

* 1 egg

* Parsley ( 1 Tb)

* Salt and pepper ( I forgot to add those when I was making them)

* Tomato slices ( This is optional really, you don’t have to put those)

* Bacon ( This is also optional)

* Mashed sweet potatoes ( I didn’t made them from scratch, sorry but I am sure it is almost like making mashed potatoes which is super easy)

*** Pre heat oven at 355 F ( 180 C) and cook for about 12 minutes but every oven is different so make sure you check the milanesas out and flip them half way if you can.

Step 1

Remove any fat from the pork tenderloin’s edges

Step 2

Mix one egg, 1 tb of parsley, salt and pepper on a bowl and on another separate bowl or plate put the bread crumbs in there ( I cannot tell you exactly how much I use but just pour a good amount and then if you need more to cover the tenderloins with it you can add more ( look at the pictures and watch the video to have a better idea)

Step 3

Put each pork tenderloin on the egg,parsley, etc mix, make sure it is all covered in that

Step 4

Put each pork tenderloin on the bread crumbs bowl and again, make sure it is all covered with the crumbs

Step 5

Pre heat oven at 355 F ( 180 C)

Step 6

Cut the bacon strips in small pieces and the tomatoes ( if you are gonna add any) in thin slices
Cook the bacon for about  8 – 10 mins or so, make sure you check on it and don’t let it burn like I did ( my bad..!! you want it crispy but not burnt)

Step 7

Put some coconut or olive oil on the cooking tray so they don’t stick ( you don’t want that)

Step 8

 Once the oven is on 355 F ( 180 c) put the milanesas on the tray and cook for about 12 minutes ( Every oven is different so make sure you check on them often and flip them half way if you can)

Milanesas before going into the oven ( of course)

Step 9

Remove the milanesas out of the oven, add the bacon and tomato slices on top

Step 10

Serve with sweet mashed potatoes or mashed potatoes and I would had added some salad as well but I didn’t have enough ingredients to make one when I filmed the video, took the pics.

Step 11

Be creative, have fun!! I would have added cheese on top of the milanesas but since I am eating paleo for another two weeks I couldn’t do that ( Oh how I miss my cheese!! 🙁

I hope you enjoyed this recipe and feel free to request other recipes that you would like me to try and feature here on my Blog, I am open to new ideas!!
Have a lovely weekend everybody!
Thanks for stopping by!!

      Hi there!
      Sorry for such a late reply, I ve been mia from my Blog cause I was focusing on my YT channel but I ll go back to blogging very soon, this week probably.
      Did you ever try making the milanesas? they remind me of the chicken parmesan here in the US but these one were made with pork, u can make them with chicken, pork or steak meats.
