Ingredients

Pork Schnitzel

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated mace
  • 4 cups panko, pulsed for a few seconds in food processor until regular breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 large pork schnitzels (loin cutlets), pounded ¼ inch (6mm) thick
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Mushroom Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1.5 pounds button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1.5 cups veal or beef stock
  • 100 ml white wine
  • 2 branches rosemary
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced

Instructions

Prepare 3 flat containers (plates or baking sheets) in order to bread the schnitzel. Put the flour and a pinch of salt and pepper in the first container. In the second one, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, nutmeg, mace, pinch salt and pepper. In the third one, combine the panko breadcrumbs and grated parmesan cheese.

Dip a schnitzel in the flour and shake off all the excess. Then dip it into the egg mixture, drain excess. Lay it in the third container with the panko mixture, bread both sides. Shake off the excess of breadcrumbs and put in a plate. Repeat the same operation with the rest of the schnitzel. Rest the breaded schnitzel in the refrigerator for one hour until dry.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the schnitzel around 3 minutes each size, until golden brown. Transfer to a plated lined with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

Serve the schnitzel with mushroom sauce (recipe below).

Mushroom Sauce

Melt the unsalted butter in a pan and brown the onions and the mushroom. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Reduce by one half. Add the rosemary and the veal stock. Reduce again by half again, and seasoning.
