Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 pork cutlets, pounded thin
  • 1 egg, mixed with a little water
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons oil (or bacon grease)


  1. Mix egg, water, salt and pepper. Dust each cutlet lightly with flour. Then dredge first in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs. Cover and set aside in refrigerator. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté cutlets, being careful not to overcook. And please. Do not poke around on these cutlets with a fork. It will only make the meat tough.

This is the best Wienerschnitzel I ever made. Once I didn't have any pork on hand so I used steak and it turned out great. Sometimes I add basil and oregano to the mix and use vegetable crackers crushed up instead of breadcrumbs.

We loved this recipe. It was easy and delicious. My 5 and 8 year olds loved them. I used Panko for bread crumbs because that's what I have in the house. I served these with Mean Chef's Spinach Saute With Brown Butter & Garlic # 110043 and some hot bread. Yummy. I've already repeated the recipe in the in the last couple of weeks. Thank you.
