Pork Schnitzel - Oktoberfest Dinner
October 29, 2020
This month might have flown by but it isn't over yet! We still have time to fit in one last Oktoberfest dinner! It is a freezing cold and rainy night here and it a perfect night for this amazing comfort food dinner!
This meal is my family's most favorite dinner ever! We instantly fell in love with this dish when we were visiting family in Vail and went to a German restaurant there. We loved the Schnitzel, with the Spaetzle and red cabbage. The flavors are amazing together and it is the ultimate comfort food dinner! Since we have no German restaurants in Chester County, Pennsylvania, I was determined to learn how to perfect our favorite dinner! And honestly, there is nothing better than this Oktoberfest feast. We love it all year long!
Boneless pork chops
Salt and pepper to taste
Pound out the pork chops as thin as you can. I like to do this in a ziploc bag to make it less messy.
Fill 3 shallow dishes. One with flour, another with eggs and the third with bread crumbs.
Dip the pounded pork chop into the flour on both sides, then dip into the the egg and lastly into the bread crumbs. Repeat until all of the pork chops are breaded.
Let the breaded pork chops rest on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
In a skillet, add equal parts of oil and butter over medium to medium-high heat.
Add the breaded pork chops to the oil and butter and cook until golden brown on one side.
Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown. Adding more butter and oil if needed.
When both sides golden, and cooked through, remove and put it on a cookie sheet.
Repeat this cooking step until all of your pork chops are cooked.
Keep Schnitzel warm in the oven at 200 degrees until they are all done and you are ready to serve.
Serve with Jager Sauce (a mushroom gravy), Spaetzle(a German pasta) and Red Cabbage. They are a delicious combination!
