Pork Schnitzel with Sauce Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 pork cutlets (about 5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon dill weed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. Flatten meat to 1/2-in. thickness. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, seasoned salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, combine egg and milk. Place bread crumbs and paprika in a third shallow dish. Coat meat with flour; dip in egg mixture, then coat with crumb mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook pork in oil for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove and keep warm. Stir 1/3 cup broth into a skillet, scraping browned bits. In a bowl, combine flour and remaining broth until smooth. Stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in the sour cream, dill, salt and pepper; heat through. Serve with cutlets. Yield: 2 servings.

"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"
