Pork Schnitzel

We’ve started a new thing these past two weeks where we are going to try and get most of our meat and vegetables from the butchers, fishmongers and greengrocers for two reasons; 1) an effort to understand a little more where our food has come from and 2) try and live a little more plastic free. The pork steaks from this recipe were from the butcher and they definitely made a massive difference to the taste

The boyfriend requested a schnitzel this week for dinner so I thought why not! I’ve made a chicken one before (you can find this recipe here!) so I thought I’d give a pork one a go! Something about this dinner was absolutely fantastic! Realising when I got home that we had no eggs  to bind the breadcrumbs so used honey instead and I think the sweetness really added something. The apple in the coleslaw also gave it a real sweet taste and some extra crunch in a usual classic coleslaw.

Let me know if you give this a try!

Ingredients

3 pork steaks

80g breadcrumbs

1 tsp dried sage

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp honey

1 apple

2/3 of 1 red onion

1 small white cabbage

1 carrot

1/2 lime, juice

1 tbsp mayonnaise

1 tbsp natural yogurt

1-2 Sweet Potato

1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

 

Method

Peel and chop the sweet potato into cubes. Add to a saucepan, fill with water and bring to the boil. Leave to boil for 5-10 minutes until soft. Drain and pop in a baking tray. Drizzle over some sunflower oil and the apple cider vinegar and roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes (180 degrees celsius fan).

Thinly slice the white cabbage, red onion and the apple and add to a bowl. Peel and grate the carrot and add to the bowl with the mayonnaise, natural yogurt, lime juice and a good grind of black pepper.  Set aside.

In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, paprika, sage and some black pepper and then pour on to a plate.

Wrap each pork steak in some greaseproof paper or cling film and bash with a rolling pin until about 1 cm thick. Brush over some honey on to each side and then press into the breadcrumb mix.

Add a sunflower/vegetable oil to a deep pan (about 1cm of oil) and let this get hot. Turn the heat down to a medium heat and add the pork steaks and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and cover with foil until all the steaks are cooked.
