Pork Schnitzels

Usually to make Schnitzels you need three large bowls, one for flour, one for beaten eggs, and finally, one for the breadcrumbs.

Sometimes, I finish off my Schnitzels with breadcrumbs, but most of the time I just do the 2 step process: flour and egg mix. 

The reason I have created my blog is I wanted to share my Quick and Easy Recipes with others.

I hear it all the time: “I don’t know what to make for dinner?” dilemma.

Well, I’m hoping this blog will help you in your quest!

I love using Cubed Pork Steaks for making Pork Schnitzels

Cubed pork steak is made by pounding a pork cutlet with a meat tenderizer or a specialized cubing tenderizer.

The result leaves cube-shaped indentations on the meat’s surface. The process allows the pork to absorb seasonings easily and makes its texture softer.

Tip: buy the darker-colored steaks, they are softer. 

You can also turn a less tender cut of beef, or sometimes pork, into cube steak at home by pounding the meat with a tenderizing mallet to produce the cube-shaped indentations.

For the side vegetables, I’ve sauteed asparagus, colorful salad peppers, and tomatoes in olive oil, crushed garlic, and when finished mixed in Balsamic Vinegar. Easy, Tasty, and Healthy!

  • 4 large Cubed pork steaks
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ Cup Half and half milk (or buttermilk)
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion powder (optional)

  1. Add 1 cup of flour and salt/pepper on a plate or a shallow bowl.
  2. In a deep bowl, combine eggs, Parmesan cheese, milk, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  3. Working with 1 cubed pork at a time, dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Dip into the egg mixture, turning to coat evenly.
  4. If you like, put the bread crumbs in a third dish and dredge pork to coat evenly.
  5. Heat Vegetable or Olive oil and butter in a deep pan to Med-Low. You will need enough oil for your Schnitzels to “swim”.
  6. Fry the Schnitzels on Med-Low on both sides until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side.
  7. Drain on a paper towel.
  8. Enjoy!
