    I have made this three times now and liked it every time but the third time was the charm because I actually followed the recipe as written. The first time I marinated it all day and that was too long (over flavored the meat), the next time I marinated for two hours and that still seemed to over season the meat, so I finally followed the directions and marinated for an hour and that was just perfect. My husband especially loves schnitzel and this recipe sends it over the top for me. I did use panko instead of breadcrumbs.

    Great recipe Jen! The marination of the meat gave this a real edge over 'normal' pork schnitzel. I used this to cook Pork and Bacon Skewers (recipe #105636) as pictured but next time will try as a standalone dish.

    WOW, that was delicious. Will do again and again. I ended up using 3/4 cup of bread crumbs and added black pepper to them. Also, I chopped the garlic rather than crushing it, so that some remained on the pork schnitzel before I breaded them. Excellent.
