Pork Chop Schnitzel
What a simple, tender and easy recipe that is so quick to make! Only six ingredients and so much delicious taste! All you need is boneless pork chops, or a pork loin cut into pork chops like I do, to make this fabulous tasting Pork Chop Schnitzel!
Ingredients – Yes that’s it!
Put the saltine crackers in a bag.
Using the flat side of a meat
tenderizer, crush the crackers.
You want them crushed fine as you can.
Place a pork chop into a bag and
using the flat side of a meat tenderizer,
pound the pork 1/8” to 1/4” thick.
Repeat with each pork chop.
Dip the pork chop into the
egg and shake the excess off.
Cover the pork chop in the
crushed cracker crumbs.
Heat the olive oil in a large
frying pan over medium heat.
Add the pork to the hot pan.
Cook until the pork is a golden
brown and cooked through.
This will not take very long
so watch it carefully.
Place Pork Chop Schnitzel on a plate and serve.

Mmmmm. I love schnitzel. 💖
It is delicious! Thanks Jennifer!
Yummy…Nemo&Nancy by NemoInCucina!!!
Definitely trying this one! Looks easy, too.
Very easy and tastes great!
You’re tugging on my heart, Diane!! Lol! Schnitzel is a favorite! Takes me back to my Germany days. So good and so “filling” lol!!
I have loved Schnitzel forever! I never realized how easy it was to make until now! Glad to bring back good memories.
Can i sub chicken or beef? I don’t eat pork but I wonder if it will be good with another meat.
Absolutely! I am going to do chicken next time!
Reblogged this on Recipe Dreams and commented:
I love meat and German cooking. Yum!
Me too! I never knew it was this easy to make and always bought it at restaurants. Never again..lol
Yum. Anything crumbed is so delicious.
I agree Chris! Thanks!
Looks good – I have only had veal schnitzel before.
Chicken and beef are good too!
I’ve never had them but I am sure they are Diane – my father was German so she made wiener schnitzel a lot. Nice for second day on toast. 🙂
You mean you had leftovers? Hahaha not in my house!
Small family – just my parents and me … we each had our own schnitzel and sometimes my mom would cook extras for sandwiches. Mmmm. It was schnitzel and spaetzle and potatoes … if I’m going to have noodles, I’d rather eat them with tomato sauce or cheese sauce, not be embedded with the green beans. 🙂
It sounds like your mom was a good cook!
She was a good cook Diane. It is just me, so I don’t cook anything really, just heat up stuff on the stove. I have fond memories of the sausage gravy and biscuits … besides going to that little diner to have those nice farmer’s breakfasts I mentioned to you before, my mom would make sausage gravy and biscuits every time I washed windows. I hated washing windows and my mom was a stickler for clean windows and I’d spend a whole day washing down the house, then washing all the windows over every 4th of July weekend. Took me a long time to do it and my reward was a nice breakfast so I had a full stomach to go work all day. 🙂 That was my incentive!
What a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing it with me!
Diane, you’re clearly my favourite.
I think I will make this for my wife who’s very fond of such dishes
You’re welcome! You can exchange the pork for chicken, beef or veal too.
Sure, thank you Diane
I’m going to do this with chicken! My mom used saltines all the time, we were never without a box in the pantry. And they have much gone out of favor.
The saltines made the Schnitzel taste so good! Enjoy!
Nice easy recipe, You know I bought that hammer at the beginning of the year when you featured it so I am ready to go with recipe.
Awesome I love it!!! It flattens the pork out perfectly!
Perfect for a rainy day here in my part of the world! Yum-yum!
Here too Mary, thank you and enjoy your weekend!
This recipe is particularly delicious, and that hammer thing is kind of therapeutic! Another great one, Diane, keep making me look like a maestro in the kitchen. Hugs, C
Thank you Cheryl and that hammer thing is called a meat tenderizer. 🤣
This reminds me of how my mother made pork chops. Looks delish and brings back memories!
There is nothing better than food bringing back the love of family.
