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 ¼ 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.
