I love the classic German dish, Weinerschnitzel. It’s a thin piece of veal, breaded and pan fried to perfection which I just can’t get enough of. I decided to riff off that idea and make my version of a schnitzel with pork loin and a few extra ingredients.
Usually when breading and frying cutlets or any thin slice of meat, I will use the classic trifecta of breading: flour, egg wash, and breadcrumbs. To change it up this time, I mixed in sour cream with my egg wash and it made all the difference in the world. The sour cream added so much moisture to the pork chops and really helped flavor the meat as well. Also, the use of Panko breadcrumbs in this instance was so much better than regular breadcrumbs - the crunch of the panko was perfect!
You can serve these pork schnitzels with apple sauce, sour cream, pan gravy….or just enjoy them plain like I did!
Deliciously seasoned pork loin chops pan fried to perfection!
