  3. Lightly pound the chops to even out the meat.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Dust the meat part of the chop with the flour, roll the floured part in the egg whites, then roll the chop in the Ground pistachios (mix the pistachio with bread crumbs, optional)
  6. Lay the finished chops on a plate or sheet pan.
  7. Heat Sauté pan with butter, garlic cloves and fresh thyme.
