- 4 4oz chop cutlets trimmed of fat
- ½ cup whole milk
- ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 ½ cup bread crumbs
- Oil for frying
- Pound each of the trimmed cutlets to about 1/4 inch. It is best to plastic wrap on each side and hammer with the flat side of a meat tenderizer
- One at a time, dunk in milk so entire cut is covered
- Coat in flour
- Dunk in egg so entire surface is covered
- Cover cutlet in bread crumbs and set aside
- Repeat until all four cutlets are covered
- Fill sturdy, skillet with oil and heat to 350° Fahrenheit
- Cook each cutlet 45 seconds on each side until done. Minimum internal temp of 145° Fahrenheit
- Set aside on paper-towel lined plate to drain
- Serve with parsley and lemon
- The best way to pound cutlets is with flat side of meat tenderizer and cover meat with plastic wrap.
- Use an appropriate dish for frying and always make sure to be safe while frying.
- Turn using fry safe tongs
- As with all of my fry recipes, I do the best I can to account for the oil in the nutritional information, but I cannot determine this exactly.
- Use a thermometer to make sure pork reaches safe internal temperature of 145° Fahrenheit
- Draining cooked cutlets is important.
- A gravy or sauce, such as this condensed mushroom soup would be great for this.
