Schweineschnitzel, breaded pork schnitzel, spicy apple sauce

Pork Cutlet

What do I want for dinner tonight????   After driving around town for an hour looking at different stores, I have finally decided to make a “Weineschnitzel” or in plain English – Breaded Pork Chop.

To cook weineschnitzel is very easy and most kids would love it.  When you have young children at home, it is a quick dinner to prepare.

Ingredients:

Centre cut pork chop                            x4

Bread crumb                                           1 cup

Golden delicious apple                         x2

Cayenne pepper                                     a dash

Cinnamon                                                a dash

Brown sugar                                            1/2 tea spoon

Eggs                                                           x2

Vegetable oil                                           1/4 cup

Method:

Trim all the fat from your pork chop and use a meat tenderizer to flatten/pound the meat untill it is almost paper thin. (you can almost see through it)  Season the meat with sea salt and pepper, coat it with flour.  Go through the egg wash and make sure there is enough egg coating the meat.  Coat the pork chop with a thin layer of bread crumb and put it on a plate ready for cooking.  Don’t forget the procedures: Dry – Wet – Dry.  Flour, egg wash, and bread crumb!

Heat up a 14″ pan to medium and pour in 1/4 cup of vegetable oil.  Carefully transfer the pork chop to the pan and make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom by shaking the pan a little.  Cook each side about four minutes or to golden brown.  Because the meat is so thin and it is very easy to cook through.  Transfer the meat to a plate with a thick paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

Apple sauce:

Peel the apple and core the centre.  Cut it up to small pieces and put it in a small cooking pot under medium heat.  Add 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1/8 cup of water.  Cover the pot and let it cook for about twenty minutes or until the apple is soften.  Use a fork to smash the apple until it turns into “sauce”.  Add cayenne pepper and cinnamon for extra taste.
