Pork Schnitzel is a unique, delicious, and entirely underrated way to enjoy pork. Pork cutlets are dipped in egg and delectable breadcrumbs, and cooked in the skillet to golden perfection! Serve this meaty dish over homemade spaetzle or mashed potatoes for a yummy and satisfying dinner. This Pork Schnitzel is savory and hearty, and it only takes 45 minutes to make!


10 pork cutlets
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, or more if needed
2 cups breadcrumbs regular or Panko
vegetable oil, for frying


Step 1

With the flat-end of a tenderizer, pound out the pork starting from the center, going out until the cutlets are about 1/4-inch thick.

Step 2

Season each pork cutlet with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Prepare 3 dishes for coating the pork cutlets—one with the flour, one with the beaten eggs, and the other with breadcrumbs.

Step 4

Season each of the bowls with your salt and pepper.

Step 5

Dip each of the cutlets through the flour on each side, next through the beaten egg, and finally through the breadcrumbs.

Step 6

Place them on a large plate and repeat with the remaining cutlets.

Step 7

Then, fill a large skillet with oil until 1/2-inch full, heating it over medium-high temperature to 350 degrees F.

Step 8

Fry each of the pork cutlets in batches for around 2 to 3 minutes on both sides or until they're a deep, golden brown.

Step 9

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with the remaining schnitzel.

Step 10

Serve hot and enjoy!
