I always disliked the the dipping of the seasoned flour, then the egg wash, then the breading.... What a P.I.T.A :tsk: By the time you got a few in everything is a mess. Well NEVER AGAIN! :-D

Can't get much healthier than this. I did zero oil only seasoned with the rub of choice (this time Bad Byrons) and patted panko into both sides. Cooked on the 007 running about 400-425* for maybe 10 minutes with the flip.

This is just as good as frying in oil w/out the hassle and with the 007 there's no black charring and with little smoke. If you try it this way then do yourself a favor and grill from a distance.

This was just a trial run but I'll slice the rest of the pork loin and freeze them in batches for quick easy meals. :thumb:

...and this could not have been easier.

Wow......looks fantastic!

I figured the panko would burn, but it didn't.

Well done, Sir!

That is one delicious looking sammy... I'm with you I hate frying especially inside.

Well done, Sir! Yep and you would be right on that. It would burn in a heart beat on a standard charcoal grill but when from distance no issues. This is one of the reasons I love this 007 setup, it's the perfect distance from the flames and gets lots of infra red off the fire for some slow sear.

Definitely gotta grill from a distance.

Roughly, how much distance from your grilling surface and the fire? Sure looks good.

Nice cooking. I'll never stop frying!

Nice cooking. I'll never stop frying! Thanks Bob but never say never! I'm pretty impressed with the result this way but if I couldn't then I suppose I'd mess with the mess and pan fry.

Looks good. Never seen panko grilled before.
But are they as crispy as fried?

Loin meat doesn't excrete much oil but if I would have sprayed with olive oil it would have been very similar. Didn't have any spray on hand but the result was still mighty fine.

From having done both I gotta say it just "feels" good knowing it's better for you, Plus oil frying lacks wood smoke. :thumb:

Knowing it's not fried wouldn't especially feel good to me--but it's great to hear that this minimal treatment came out so well. What I would feel good knowing is that it's pretty light in starch, with just the one panko coating.

I suppose it's the thinness of the cutlet that allows it to take infrared all the way, whereas 007 fried chicken pieces have to spend a portion of the time shielded?

No always direct for chicken. The only things I ever go indirect for are the low slow stuff like the beef shoulder I did last week...even then that was direct for the first 3.5 hours. (low fire) Even medium fire low/slow stuff goes direct for at least the first couple hours with a flip to get good color on both sides first.

It's definitely nice to spray the breading/panko with olive oil. I gotta get a new pump sprayer, Does anyone have a good one?

Really nice, that looks tasty.

Just ordered a "Misto" I'll let you know how I like it. I do think that spraying olive oil/veggie oil on things like chicken etc... with panko and grilled (grilled right) is definitely as good as frying.

Fried tenderloin is maybe my favorite food. And this looks like a respectable alternative. I'd try it at least once.

I'll still fry french fries but for other foods like tenderloins/chicken etc... this kind of grilling is fantastic.
