Basic preparations

Clarified butter

Method

  1. 01 / Prepare the meat

    Beat the chops with a meat tenderizer, maintaining an even thickness.  

    Dip each cutlet in bread crumbs, then in beaten egg and again in bread crumbs, pressing lightly to make the breading adhere.  

    Dip a second time in the egg and breadcrumbs to make a double breading. 

  2. 02 / Cook the cutlets

    In a skillet, melt the clarified butter over medium heat.  

    Lay the cutlets in the skillet and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until golden brown.  

    Drain them on paper towels and season with salt.   

  3. 03 / Serve

    Serve the cutlets hot with a slice of lemon. 

Wine pairing

A light, fruity white wine such as a Pinot Grigio or Franciacorta goes well with the rich flavors of schnitzel.    

Basic preparations

Clarified butter

Prepare the clarified butter in advance if you do not have any ready.  

You can prepare the breaded meat in advance and store it in the refrigerator for a few hours before frying.  

Do not cook the meat at too high a temperature, otherwise it is likely to burn on the outside before being cooked on the inside.  

The fried cutlets can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days and reheated in the oven to maintain crispness.  

For best results, use meat on the bone and breaded without too much pressure.
