Top Review by Jen T

My husband & I really enjoyed this dish. I did leave out the thyme though as it is not a flavour that I like. I also think that you could use chicken or beef schnitzel in place of the pork and it would be just as great. I served it with a potato gratin and vegetables. Thank you for this really easy tasty recipe. Cheers
