Recipe: Quick Weekday Dinner – Pork Schnitzel

PORK schnitzel recipe

Quick and easy pork dinner

 Cooking during the week needn’t be all about pasta, you can put together a quick dinner using one of the easiest cuts of meat to get, pork chops.

Growing up, I hated pork chops – all that cutting for very little meat.  However, I think this Schnitzel recipe will go down a treat.  It’s easy to make, no fuss to eat and tasty.

Your local butcher can supply the chops de-boned or you can do this yourself.

Place each chop between two sheets of plastic an using the flat side of a tenderiser, flatten to about 1/4 inch thick.

Once you have done this.  Line up three bowls, one with seasoned flour, one with beaten egg and one with breadcrumbs (I used Panko as I had some in the cupboard).

Dip each side of the chop into each bowl, starting with flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.

Add your Schnitzel to a medium hot pan.

Cook for 2-3 mins each side until golden brown then serve.

Serve with salad, chips or just some lemon squeezed over.
