You know how men are. They want great tasting food, and lots of it. These Country Fried Pork Cutlets are so hearty! I doubt anybody could eat this and go away hungry. They are actually pretty quick to make since they’re pan fried. You could literally have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
These can be made from pork cutlets (thin cuts of pork) or I have made them with cubed pork steaks. Either way, they are “tasty grub!”
This recipe makes 2 steaks so if you are serving more, just adjust the ingredients accordingly.
2 pork cutlets (or cubed pork steaks)
1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. Panko Bread Crumbs
salt and pepper
To start, I put the pork cutlets into a heavy plastic bag (one at a time) and pound the meat with a rolling pin until it’s thin (about 1/4″ thick.)
Drizzle a little bit of olive oil into a skillet and heat to medium heat. While the skillet is heating, set up 3 large plates.
In the first plate, put the flour and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
In the second plate, beat the two eggs (you can beat the eggs with a fork right on the plate if you’re careful!)
On the third plate, put the Panko Bread Crumbs and sprinkle with a little bit of garlic powder and stir with a fork to combine.
One at a time, dredge the pork in the flour, making sure it’s entirely coated with a light dusting of flour.
Next, dip the flour coated pork into the beaten egg wash.
Then it goes into the crumbs. Okay, now the cutlet is ready to pan fry. Place it into the preheated skillet that has been drizzled with olive oil and pan fry for about 4-5 minutes or until golden. Turn over and continue cooking the other side for another 4-5 minutes.
See what I mean? Because the meat is pounded thin, it doesn’t take long at all!
I usually serve this with a side of rice or noodles. You could add gravy over the top if you like.
Man Pleasin’ Country Fried Pork! Mmmm…
