"A while ago someone asked what to do with pork cutlets she got on sale - this is a wonderful dish using pork cutlets that we enjoy served with egg noodles. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (January 1981)"

Ready In:




  • Place cutlets between waxed paper and flatten to 1/4 - 1/2 inch thickness using a meat pounder or rolling pin.
  • Cut small slits around the edges of the pork and set aside.
  • In a pie dish or bowl combine 1/2 cup flour, salt and pepper.
  • In a second pie dish beat eggs with milk.
  • In a third pie dish combine bread crumbs and paprika.
  • Dip cutlets in flour, then egg mixture and finally in the breadcrumb mixture, coating well with the crumbs; set aside until all the pork cutlets are coated.
  • In a large skillet melt Crisco (vegetable shortening) over medium heat.
  • Add three cutlets to the skillet at a time and saute on both sides until golden brown (3-5 minutes per side) and then transfer to a plate and keep warm and repeat with the remaining shortening (3 tablespoons) and cutlets.
  • In a small cup combine remaining flour (2 tablespoons) with dillweed and then add mixture to skillet.
  • Stir in broth, stirring to combine well and then stir in sour cream until heated through.
  • Spoon sauce or pass separately--the sauce is wonderful over noodles.

    I have never cooked pork cutlets and got a good deal on them. I have eaten them and only had them breaded and fried. Any ideas? I can only find breaded and fried recipes.

    So easy and delicious!!! I added a bit of kosher salt (probably about a tsp) to the sauce but I like things a bit salty. I also used Seasoned Salt and garlic powder in the flour mixture. Very tasty. I will definitely make again.

    This was absolutely delicious. I used panko bread crumbs instead of the normal Italian style. Very crispy and the sauce was great too!

    I used Lawry's Season Salt, so I didn't use paprika. I fried it in olive oil. Made my own gravy from the drippings with flour, milk, salt and pepper. Really good!

    This is one recipe I will use forever. The cutlets cook so quickly & were juicy & flavorful. YUM!


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
