Recipe notesThis easy recipe for pork schnitzel - breaded pork cutlets pan-fried in duck fat - makes a simple and delicious supper, served with lemon and your favorite aioli. The duck fat is the secret to the satisfying crispy finish.
- Lightly pound each slice of pork, until it’s about ¼ inch thick.
- In a shallow dish, beat eggs and Dijon. In a second shallow dish, mix together flour, salt and pepper. And in a third shallow dish, place panko. Line them up, side-by-side.
- Coat each piece of pork in flour mixture, then egg, and finally panko. Set aside on a sheet tray.
- In a large skillet, over medium-high flame, heat 1 tablespoon duck fat. Working in batches, so as not to crowd the pan, cook the pork medallions until golden and cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Wipe out the pan and repeat. Drain medallions on a paper towel-lined tray. Serve on a platter and garnish with lemon slices and a sprinkling of salt.
