Easy Pork Schnitzel



Ingredients

4 boneless pork chops
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour combined with 1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
Oil for frying

Directions

1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them until just 1/4 inch thick with the flat side of a meat tenderizer. Lightly season both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
2. Place the flour mixture, egg, and breadcrumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dip the chops in the flour, the egg, and the breadcrumbs, coating both sides and all edges at each stage. Be careful not to press the breadcrumbs into the meat. Gently shake off the excess crumbs. Fry immediately.
3. Make sure the cooking oil is hot enough at this point (about 350 degrees F)
4. Fry until a deep golden brown. Transfer briefly to a plate lined with paper towels.
5. Serve immediately with slices of fresh lemon and parsley sprigs or with your choice of sauce.
