Pork & Apple Schnitzel

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Mandy

This is a great simple recipe. The applesauce and sage combine to add a subtle tasty coating for the pork. I have used dried sage with this also without a problem.

This really didn't work for us. I have made numerous schnitzel in my time and never had any of them come out...DH called it mushy. The flavor was good but the technique was lacking. Thanks for letting me try your recipe. :)
