Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time45 mins
- 10 pork cutlets
- vegetable oil for frying
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
- 1 tsp salt or to taste
- 1 tsp pepper or to taste
Pound each pork chop until just ¼ inch thick with the flat side of a meat tenderizer. Lightly season both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. You need enough oil so that the schnitzels swim in it, about 1/2 inch.
Place the flour mixture, egg, and breadcrumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dip the chops in the flour, the egg, and then bread crumbs, coating both sides.
Make sure the cooking oil is hot enough at this point.
Fry the schnitzels for about 2-3 minutes on both sides until a deep golden brown. Transfer briefly to a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve immediately over mashed potatoes
I used Panko breadcrumbs because I find that the pork schnitzel comes out crispier but Italian breadcrumbs work just as well.
I used pork cutlets because they are boneless and I find they are easier to work with and pound, but pork chops work as well, though I would remove the bones first.
Serve these with lemon wedges, mustard and over mashed potatoes for an amazing meal.
