I lucked out in that my MIL gave me a several pork chops she bought from Hy-Vee (apparently Kansas City had a huge sale that my area did not). So I thought Schnitzel would be a great use of them since they were the smaller, breakfast type of chop.
Have you ever had Schnitzel? It might be my absolute favorite way of eating a pork chop (paired with Spätzle and gravy it is divine!)
4 Thin Porkchops $9.99 for 9 = $4.44
1 Large Egg $.99 a dozen = $.08
½ Cup Flour $1.46 a bag = $.09
1 cup Breadcrumbs (not Panko!) $1.91 for a one time use box *sale*
Total $14.35 if you need to buy everything new = $1.49 a serving
- Set a medium saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Add some oil or spray to the bottom.
- Pound the pork chop as thin as possible. I usually fold it into saran wrap and pound it with the smooth side of my mallet, until about ¼ inch
- Coat in flour
- Dip into the egg
- Coat in the breadcrumbs, shake off the excess so it is nice and crispy!
- Set in pan for about 6 minutes on each side.
Pair with potatoes, pasta, veggies. Anything! Fast, easy, delicious.
