Pork Cutlets

Total Time:
35 min
20 min
15 min

1 serving

  • 1 egg white plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 (4-ounce) boneless pork cutlet, pounded thin
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lime

In a mixing bowl, beat the egg white and water until it starts to foam. Stir in a teaspoon of dry mustard. Season cutlet with salt and pepper. Dip the cutlet in flour, then the egg mixture, coating thoroughly, and then in the breadcrumbs. Be sure that both sides are covered well. Set aside, or refrigerate, covered by a piece of waxed paper or plastic wrap.

Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan until hot. Add the cutlet, lower the heat slightly, and cook for about 2 minutes. Turn with a spatula, and brown the other side. Continue cooking, turning once again if necessary, until the pork is cooked through, about 5 minutes in total. When done, the flesh will be white. Drain on a paper bag. Serve with a squeeze of lime.

Serve with potato and leeks

    A bit of fresh lemon juice when serving jumps it up a little. This is how my mom did this dish. Even my dad ate it! 
    Loved it and the touch of mustard added to the great taste. I did put a dash of paprika in the flour as we love it. Fast, easy, and great tasting.

    This recipe has everything I love -- it is easy, doesn't require a lot of ingredients, and can be made for only one or two people. My 9-year-old son and extremely picky husband both enjoyed this.
    Made a great presentation over pasta .They all thought it was veal !

    This simple and easy recipe rocks! I saw pork cutlets at Sprouts one day and thought it would be a nice change from pork chops. When I got home, I thought now how do I prepare these. I went directlly to the Food Network and found this recipe. I'm so glad I tried it.
    If you are not sure the meat is cooked or not, I recommend to put the meat in an oven (about 300F) for 10 ~ 15 min.
    This is a great recipe that I have also used for chicken. The lemon juice is essential. I seasoned the bread crumbs with onion powder, garlie powder and a little bit of cayenne.
    I suffered through two days thinking about how I was going to prepare my Pork Cutlets tonight. I found this simple and quick recipe, and frankly, "it rocked". I have to admit that it was the best pork cutlets I've ever had. My children and I loved it.
