1/2 cup milk (yes, another one)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 quart vegetable oil for frying (mix in some bacon fat if you’re feeling kicky)
1. Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick. Discard the ends.
2. Mix together 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup soy sauce. Dump over tomato slices and let them marinate and soak up the awesome for 10 minutes.3. Whisk eggs and milk together in a medium-size bowl.
Scoop flour onto a plate. Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs and salt and pepper on another plate. Dip tomatoes into flour to coat. Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
4. In a large skillet, pour vegetable oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium heat.
Place tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of four or five, depending on the size of your skillet. Don’t crowd the tomatoes, they shouldn’t be touching.
