Schnitzel - Thin Breaded German Pork Chops

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

How to Make Schnitzel - Thin Breaded German Pork Chops


  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.
