A traditional German dish where meat is pounded out thin, breaded and fried. The ingredients are simple but the flavor and texture are irresistible.

Preparation
STEP 1

Pound each pork chop with the flat side of a meat mallet between two pieces of waxed paper or plastic bag until approximately 1/4-inch thin.

STEP 2

Season each pork chop well with salt and pepper. Add flour, beaten eggs and breadcrumbs to three separate bowls.

STEP 3

In a three-step breading process, first coat pork in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs, evenly coating each layer.

STEP 4

Place a deep sauté pan over medium heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded cutlets 2 or 4 at a time depending on the size of your pan. Be sure they all have some space. Brown on each side about 3-4 minutes or until cooked through. Reduce heat if cutlets are browning too quickly. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate while you finish.

STEP 5

Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Options

Serve with Spaetzle or German Potato Salad recipe. This recipe works just as well with chicken that has been pounded thin.
