"I've tried making pork schnitzel a few times but could never quite find "the" recipe. My search is now over. My family absolutely loved this. The paprika gives the delicious crispy crust a beautiful color. The dill sauce was the perfect compliment. Once the prep work is done this dish is fast, and definitely company worthy!"

"Got this EXACT recipe from the Wisconsin Gas & Electric company Home Economist in the early 1970s . Didn't like it then. Tried this again and still don't like it. This time tossed BOTH copies out."

"This was only ok for us. It wasn't awful, but it was not terribly flavorful. Just a little too bland for our household."

"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."

"This was a hit! My family enjoyed it. I'll add chopped onion to the dill sauce next time because I thought it was a little on the bland side."

"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!"
