  1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/8-inch. 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. Dredge 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 skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange no more than two pork chops in the skillet at a time, cooking until the meat is golden brown no longer pink in the center, 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 skillet used to cook the pork. Reduce the heat to low, and scrape up any brown bits in the bottom of the 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 skillet. Heat until warm and thick, about 5 minutes. Serve with the pork chops.

Pork is my favorite... But this didn't do my chops any justice. It's basically pork cutlets with a flavorless cream sauce.

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.

My husband and I have lived in Germany before...we enjoyed this recipe! Pork Schnitzel is, for the most part, pork cutlets! narf! We liked the sauce too...Ill use less salt next time though. Thanks for sharing!

My family loves this. Its just like how I always made it. My grandmother's recipe called for regular seasoned bread crumbs, but I changed it to panko. I was searching for a variation of schnitzel when I saw this and was surprised its just like mine. I usually use dill seeds for the sauce because I never have fresh dill and I use more paprika cause I love it. We never use the sauce for dipping, we just pour it right on top of the pork and noodles or dumplings.

For the most part, we really enjoyed this dish. The dipping sauce wasn't exactly what we were hoping, but it did taste good. I had to add a slurry of about 1 tsp cornstarch with 1 Tbs of water to the sauce to get it to thicken and we all thought it could benefit from a squeeze of lemon juice. The pork was almost perfect as written, except I think next time (and there WILL be a next time!) I will season the pork itself with the salt and pepper instead of adding it to the flour. Additionally, the paprika all sifted down through the panko crumbs, making the last piece of pork end up with the majority of the paprika on it, so next time I'll add the paprika to the flour instead.

I tried this recipe the first time I ever made schnitzel and it was delicious. Even my son liked it and he doesn't seem to like very much these days! It is simple and very tasty!
