About this Recipe

This crispy Schnitzel consists of thinly pounded pork that is breaded then pan-fried in Brava. If you don’t want to use pork, feel free to substitute any type of meat here -- just make sure to use the same quantity and pound it to ¼” thick. Chef Erin suggests serving this with a squeeze of lemon, and it is also delicious topped with capers, a fried egg, mustard sauce or simply on its own!
