  1. 2 1⁄2 Lbs. Pork Loin Medallions
  2. 1 Cup Milk
  3. 2 each Eggs, beaten
  4. 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  5. - Salt, to taste
  6. - Pepper, to taste
  7. 2 Cups Salvaggio's Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  8. 2 Sticks Butter
  9. 2 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped
  1. Pound pork cutlets between parchment paper or plastic film into approximately 4" x 5" shapes.
  2. Season flour with salt and pepper and dredge (dust) cutlets in the flour. Dip them in egg wash and bread them in the seasoned breadcrumbs. Repeat for all cutlets and separate from one another while resting on a sheet pan or platter.
  3. Heat a fry pan to medium and add enough butter (approximately 1/2 stick) to fry pan to fry the pork cutlets until golden on both sides and cooked through. Add butter as needed to fry all remaining cutlets.
  4. Place finished cutlets on absorbent paper towels for a moment before plating to absorb any excess frying butter.
  5. In a separate fry pan over medium heat, bring 1/2 stick of butter to a simmer. Continue to cook butter while stirring until the foaming butter is light brown. Remove pan from the heat and spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of browned butter over each finished cutlet.
  6. Serve with a 1/6th lemon wedge for each cutlet and a sprinkle of dry parsley on top.
  1. Braised Red Cabbage is an excellent side dish to serve with Pork Schnitzel.
