Schnitzel

Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 11:37 AM EST
Servings: 4

INGREDIENTS:
¼ Cup of A.P. Flour
1 Egg
¼ Cup of Milk
1-2 Cups of Bread Crumbs or Panko Bread Crumbs
1 Pound of Pork Loin cut into 4 equal pieces or Veil Loin cut the same way or 4 trimmed Boneless Skinless chicken Breasts
¼ Olive Oil or your preferred Oil
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
¼ cup white wine or Broth
¼ lbs. of Butter
3 TBS of lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:
In separate bowls or shallow dishes place the flour (seasoned with salt and pepper), the egg beaten with the milk (seasoned with salt and pepper) and the Bread crumbs (also seasoned with salt and pepper). Take the chops (your choice of pork or veal) and place them on a cutting board and using a meat mallet beat the meat until thin (about a ¼ inch thick) and tender. If using chicken breasts, butterfly them prior to beating them out. Then you will dredge the individual pieces of meat in the seasoned flour followed by the egg/milk mixture (seasoned) and then finally into the seasoned bread crumbs. You want to do this one piece at a time making sure to keep your dry hand dry and your wet hand wet. Pre-heat a sauté pan to medium high heat, add in the oil, then sauté the pieces for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. When browned and cooked through remove the schnitzels from the pan and place in a warm holding area. Into the same pan the meat was cooked in add in the liquids and scrape the pan to de-glaze and collect the fond. Let this mixture reduce in volume by over half. Remove this pan from the heat and add in your cubed cold butter. Whisk the butter and liquid together melting the butter and creating an emulsification. Use this as a sauce to pour over your schnitzel. Garnish with a lemon, anchovy and caper. Schnitzel
