Pork Schnitzel with Sauce

German-style schnitzel is usually made with veal. I substituted pork to save money without sacrificing flavor. Whenever I serve it, I'm asked for the recipe.—Diane Katzmark, Metamora, Michigan

    2 servings


  • 2 pork cutlets (about 5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

    you swapped to pigs over baby cows (veal) to save money...why not switch to wheat (seitan) or veggie protein to save LIFE? :-(

    We loved this recipe. I used chicken thighs and they turned out great. The sauce was good with or without the dill.

    This was really delicious, sauce and all. Only thing I did was salt the meat a little bit and I used panko crumbs. Made for a crispy breading. Flavors were spot on. Served this with onion and chive mashed potatoes and saut?ed brussel sprouts with bacon and balsamic vinegar. Wonderful meal

    Pork Chops took a lot longer than 4 minutes to cook and the sauce was terrible.
