Very tasty and easy to make. I'll definitely make this again. Made spaetzel for the first time to go with this and it turned out very well, too. Here's a tip though, add a small amount of cooking oil, about ¼ tsp or so to the inside of a 1 gal. plastic bag and pound the pork. The oil allows the meat to spread out when being hit instead of tending to cling to the bag. the meat flattens w/o so much tearing.

This was an easy recipe to prepare. We made it on a week night, and the cooking and prep times were right on. The only adaptation we made was to use Panko bread crumbs which made for a crispier crust. This is a tasty recipe and is highly recommended.
