Pork Schnitzel with Dill Sauce Recipe

Schnitzel is one of my husband’s favorites because it reminds him of his German roots. An appealing dish for guests, it’s ready in a jiffy. —Joyce Folker, Paraowan, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1-1/2 cups dry bread crumbs

  • 2. Pound pork cutlets with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Dip cutlets in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.

  • 4. In a small bowl, whisk flour and broth until smooth; add to same skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened.

"Sour cream dill sauce is a must! I breaded the pork ahead of time and put it on a plate in the fridge. Once company arrived, it cooked up quickly. Wonderful flavor."

"I used a pork tenderloin whole boneless about 2 1/2 lbs. sliced it about 1/2 inch. Pounded it with back of big frying pan. Went quick and wasn't expensive. I did double recipe . Results were fantastic! Sauce was complimentary. Perfect for entertaining as I breaded everything ahead of time and the fry time was quick! In the recipe box this goes!"

"Delicious and incredibly easy! Instead of pounding the pork, we just got super-thin pork chops from the store. Worked great."

"Sure gut essen! I loved the way the sauce came together without added fat. I used a little more dill than suggested. I also used 1 egg and 3 tablespoons pasturized egg whites because I had to use them up. Worked just as well. I also put the coated cutlets (I started with cubed pork that I further pounded) on a rack set into a rimmed cookie sheet and refrigerated them to proof...the topping sticks much better. I deglazed the pan with a little white wine before making the sauce. This is a keeper, and I will certainly make it again. Thank you for posting!"

"Absolutely fantastic. Took me a while to pound out the cutlets, so I would say closer to 30 minutes than 20, but this was delicious. I fried in coconut oil instead of vegetable oil b/c it's better for you, and it turned out great. Will definitely be making again!"

"Lots of flavor. I happen to love dill, but for those who don't, it is very mild. Since there are only two of us I cut this recipe in thirds. Perfect!"

"Wow...does this ever make your pork chops moist and tender! My family "LOVED" this. I did revise the gravy/sauce that goes over it due to I'm not big on dill flavor. I just made the sauce without the dill seasoning and it was still yummy. Thanks for sharing this's wonderful!"
