Week #6, Oh boy I am behind. I am working on catching up. My stove got sick and the medicine is on backorder. Amazing how all of a sudden my mind became a complete blank as I attempted to come up with
dinner ideas. Funnily though it seems we don’t bake everything and we have survived a whole week without a stove. Yup! in 2011, a family of 5 can live without a stove for over a whole week. Who knew? Lol. I am hoping they get my stove working early next week.
Anyway I am working on getting caught up on the weeks. Then once I have gone through my personal recipes I can start trying out new ones.
Traditionally this is made with veal, lamb (baby sheep). We never had it that way that I can remember (thank goodness) , but my mom used pork chops. I have since omitted the bone because my boys like making schnitzel sandwiches.
We always had the creamy paprika sauce over it, but again that has changed over time. My hubs don’t like the sauce so I don’t make it often.
Other then that I would serve schnitzel with speatzle and a light salad. You could go authentic and do rot kohl, red cabbage, very yummy. I think it makes the meal a bit heavy so to lighten it I go with salad. Another addition could be fried potatoes;
this is not the same as French fries. Again my boys like sandwiches which are more like a burger because you use a bun. Take your schnitzel and a bun. Put some mayo, I also like some mustard and lettuce.
If you can get German rolls that would be better. I wonder how many other ways people have these, if you have a great twist on this favorite please let me know.
Here is the recipe.
6 pork chops, no bone
Salt, pepper and paprika
1 cup flour, more if needed
3 eggs plus 3 tablespoon milk
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/3 cup margarine
1 lemon (optional)
Flatten pork chops with meat pounder. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Coat with flour, put this in a bag (big plastic or paper) it works much better.
Dip into egg/milk mixture and then coat with breadcrumbs. Again use a bag as this makes it much easier.
Pan fry in hot margarine over medium about 8 minutes each side. Turn only once, let rest.
Arrange with slice of lemon, if desired.
