This traditional German dish is super easy and perfectly made!
So ever since we visited our local German fast food restaurant for the first time, Nick has been obsessed with schnitzel. I have made it entirely too many times in the last year or so. However, we don't eat a lot of pork because it's not everyone else's favorite, so I welcome a little variety in meat choices when I can get them! This is one of the more simple recipes for schnitzel and I think the most traditional preparation and it's probably our most favorite recipe for schnitzel out of all the ones I've tested out.
What you need:
- 4 boneless pork chops
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
- Oil for frying
- Fresh parsley
- Flatten pork chops as thin as you can get them - about 1/4 inch is perfect. Season with salt and pepper.
- Mix flour with 1 tsp. salt in a shallow dish. Place eggs in a shallow bowl and bread crumbs in another shallow dish/bowl.
- Dredge pork chops in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Don't let the schnitzel sit around for too long - you will want to fry them as soon as possible.
- In a large, deep skillet, heat enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Fry schnitzel for 2 to 3 minutes per side and then transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
- Serve immediately with lemon and parsley.
