Instructions for Pork Schnitzel
Set out three bowls.
Put flour, salt, and pepper in the first bowl. Mix well.
Whisk together two eggs in the second bowl.
Place bread crumbs in the third bowl.
Using a kitchen mallet, beat both sides of each pork chop.
Dip the pork into flour, followed by the whisked egg, and last, dip chop into bread crumbs, making sure to cover each chop well. Place chops on a plate.
Heat oil to a medium-low heat in a cast iron skillet, if possible. (If using an electric skillet, turn the dial to 4.)
Once the oil is hot, place two pork schnitzels into the pan. Fry for a few minutes, flipping occasionally - until each steak is golden brown on both sides. Once golden brown and cooked through, remove to a plate.
Serve with boiled potatoes and sauerkraut.
NOTE: If you're making a large batch of Pork Schnitzels, keep them warm by placing them in a casserole dish in the oven on the lowest temperature. This will not only keep them warm, it will also help dry up a bit of the excess oil.
