➡️ Cooking tips for the pork schnitzel recipe with breadcrumbs 🔎

Schnitzel is today one of the most appreciated pork recipes in many European countries. This happens, probably, because the combination of tender meat and crispy crust makes this food simply irresistible!

There are two types of schnitzel. One is without breadcrumbs and is known as French schnitzel or Parisian schnitzel.

The other one is cooked with breadcrumbs and is named German schnitzel or Wienerschnitzel.

German pork schnitzel recipe with breadcrumbs is one of my favorite foods, so I cook it as many times as I have the opportunity.

You can cook schnitzel with boneless or bone-in pork loin. I prefer to use bone-in pork loin because the bone keeps the meat juicy and tender during frying.

However, if you like more, use boneless pork loin or other boneless pork cuts such as pork tenderloin, pork neck, or fresh pork ham without skin and fat.

There are several cooking tips that you should follow to get the best results when you make a pork schnitzel recipe with breadcrumbs:

  • flatten the meat, so that the meat slice don’t be too thick and remain raw in the middle of the schnitzel; however, make sure the slice is not too thin, otherwise, the schnitzel will be dry, this is why I recommend half of the finger thickness (approximately 1 cm/0.4 inch) for the fillet
  • wait until the oil is hot before placing pork chops into the pan, this will prevent schnitzel from absorbing excess oil and getting a crispy crust
  • use enough oil, the meat slice should be sunk at least to the half into oil, this will help cook the meat evenly
  • fried chops should be fried over medium temperature, so the meat will be juicy and tender but not raw inside
  • drain well oil when you take the pork schnitzel out from the pan and place it on absorbent paper to remove all excess oil
  • do not cover the dish where you store schnitzels before serving, so the breadcrumb crust will remain crispy
  • serve pork schnitzel while it’s still warm because when the meat is cold it’s harder and dryer

German pork schnitzel recipe with breadcrumbs can be served plain or along with different side dishes. From these, I mostly recommend creamy mashed potatoes, French fries, home fries, risotto, or plain rice pilaf.

A fresh vegetable salad or pickles is also highly recommended next to this pork schnitzel recipe with breadcrumbs.
