I used a boneless tenderized pork Schnitzel, lots of onions and it was great - Plain easy ingredients that anyone can whip together. When the schnizel is getting just the right golden color slip the onions under them turn to low and let those onions get that carmelized look - Loved the recipe I may throw in a little chili flake or worchestershire next time but I loves it as is Thanks Kree

Lovely simple recipe and it worked a treat, once again recipezaar members come up trumps. I confess I cooked in butter not margarine (not keen on margarine), and secondly was worried the salt and pepper would fall off when dipped in egg (was using cracked pepper and maldon salt) so I lightly hammered the cracked pepper and flake salt into each fillet - it really worked a treat, am going to do that again. Recipe was superb, thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

I can't believe I haven't rated this, 'cause I cook it all the time! It is one of my son's frequently requested recipes. The only changes I made were to use Panko crumbs; and, since I have to cook the pork chops in batches (as I must make more than 4!), I cook the pork first, and then cook and carmelize the onions. Yummy!
