    Serves: 4 

    • 4 boneless pork chops
    • 1/4 cup (30g) plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
    • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 3/4 cup chicken chicken stock
    • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup sour cream

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable storage bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2 cm. Trim any fat from the edges and make a few small slits along the edge to prevent the pork from curling during cooking.
    2. Combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisk the egg and milk together in another bowl until well blended then mix the panko bread crumbs and paprika together in a third bowl. Dust the pork chops in the flour mixture one at a time then dip them into the egg mixture followed by the panko mixture.
    3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Arrange no more than two cutlets in the frying pan at a time, cooking until the meat is golden brown and no longer pink in the centre, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Place the pork chops in a warm oven to keep warm.
    4. Pour the chicken stock into the frying pan used to cook the pork. Reduce the heat to low and scrape up any brown bits in the bottom of the frying pan. As the stock simmers, mix the dill, 1/2 teaspoon salt and sour cream together in a bowl. Whisk about 1/4 cup of the hot stock into the sour cream mixture then pour it back into the frying pan. Heat until warm and thick, about 5 minutes. Serve with the pork chops.

    I know of Schnitzel and this is a lovely recipe but my family have always uses pork steak which comes from the shoulder blade area and it is much nicer for this dish than the chop. We always ask the butcher to butterfly the steak and then we bash it. Much less work if the butcher cuts it open for us. Just love Schnitzel.  -  04 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
