lean pork chops
salt to taste
pepper to taste
paprika to taste
flour for dredging
beaten eggs for dipping
breadcrumbs for coating
oil or shortening for frying.
1Prepare the meat by trimming off the fat.
Flatten or pound it, without tearing, to a uniform 1/4 inch thickness.
Season with a mixture of salt, pepper and paprika.
2For the next steps, you should handle the meat with a fork or
you will have a mess on your fingers.
Dredge the meat in flour until well coated.
Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl.
Dip the chops into the eggs and cover them with breadcrumbs.
3Leave the breaded meat rest on a cookie sheet
or on a wire rack for a while (15 minutes) to give the breading a chance to adhere better.
4Preheat your oven to 225 degrees.
5Heat the fat in a large skillet.
Cook the Schnitzel on both sides until they are nicely browned.
When all of them are finished put them into the pre-heated oven for about 1/2 hour.
NOTE: This last important step allows the seasonings to be absorbed by the meat.
