Anybody can make these. No measuring, just common sense !
Goes great with egg noodles or spaetzel. Just add a thin brown gravy and the magic happens. LOL

Ingredients

4 medium
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.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare 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.
2
For 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.
3
Leave 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.
4
Preheat your oven to 225 degrees.
5
Heat 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.
