This is a pretty easy recipe and the flavor is excellent! I make it almost once a week. I came across it a while ago on a site with Bed & Breakfast recipes on it. I find it hard to find good pork cutlet recipes and this was is really good!

This is one of my DH favorite meals. Very easy to make. Only change I made was to use a little panko bread crumbs and Italian bread crumbs combined. Also a little garlic powder because I don' think I could have a meal without garlic!. Paired it with #284136 swiss mushroom orzo and steamed asparagus. Wonderful!

I thought this recipe was just okay. It wasn't' bad by any means, but nothing to rave about.

Very tasty. I had two 1" thick pork loin pieces (about 1 lb's worth) and made a half-recipe. I cooked them at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes to get them to temperature and they came out very flavorful. I will try it again with garlic.
