Recipe by Stephanie
"My husband spent part of his childhood in Germany and craves traditional German fare. I found a simple recipe for pork schnitzel that was really delicious. Unfortunately one of the times that I went to make for my husband I was missing some of the ingredients so I experimented and came up with this version. My family enjoys this so much I no longer make traditional schnitzel for them. This recipe is definitely rich and is not for anyone worried about dieting....I hope any who try this will enjoy this recipe."

buttery crackers (such as Keebler Club® crackers), crushed
Greek seasoning (such as Cavender's®)
ground black pepper
lemon, cut into wedges
This was delicious! I didn't know what greek seasoning consisted of so I kept it simple with salt, pepper, and some garlic powder directly on the pork. The buttery crackers work wonderfully as a coating which I did as directed with pepper and not as directed with a little garlic powder. The only issue...they cook quickly and burn before allowing the pork to cook fully even with the instructions followed. My recommendation, is to either use the traditionally thin schnitzel (I did a non-traditional 1/2") or saute the schnitzel till golden brown on both sides and pop in a preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. A definite must try!!!
Just a note about the seasoning....It can really be what is to your taste but if you want to stick to the recipe as I do it can be any Greek type seasoning as long as it is ground ....little chunks of seasoning might not cook right. The seasoning I use has pepper garlic powder onion powder and a few others that just say herbs for them , down side for some on the Cavender's if they do use, it does have msg in it. I personally don't mind using msg but I know there are those out there that don't like using it. So best bet is to go with a simple seasoning that u like and use that if you don't want the msg or if you can't find Cavender's. On the browning too fast this is cooked in butter so the browning time is shorter than with oil, so these must be cooked low and slow they will crisp but they should take time also when I originally submitted this recipe I said thicker than normal but did not specify thickness ( sorry that was my goof) that was added when they kitchen certified the recipe. 1/2 in is too thick I tend toward 1/4. Schnitzel is usually pretty thin ...1/8 or thinner. Hope this helps.
These are excellent but felt they were just a different twist on fried pork chops. The greek seasoning that you mentioned is awesome. I only fried them for 3 minutes each side and they were perfectly done. Also used 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 c. olive oil for frying them in....gotta watch the waistline somewhere along the way. Served with smashed, parsley red potatoes and green beans. Great meal.
Great, easy recipe! I didn't have Greek seasoning so I went for it and found some mixed seasonings and used those instead and it all worked out perfectly!
My whole family loved this so much! I did not tell my husband what the ingredients are (he is German) and he said "Wow that is authentic German cooking!"
My husband loved this so much I think he would have licked the frying pan! Thanks so much!
A great dinner, QUICK and EASY. Just wonderful!!!
