Keto Schnitzel 🐷πŸ₯©πŸ˜‹

It’s Schnitzel Sunday πŸŽ‰πŸ·
Being a German family, we have our favorite native dishes, Schnitzel being one of them 😍 and although the traditional method uses real bread crumbs we have adapted the recipe to make it #ketofriendly
Schnitzel is traditionally made with veal or pork loin that is pounded very thinly and breaded with egg and breadcrumbs. To substitute for breadcrumbs, we used @yezfoods breadcrumbs but we have also done it with regular almond flour before!

Making the Schnitzel is super easy, just gather up your ingredients πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³
1) boneless pork chops or tenderloin (we used @butcher_box boneless pork chops)πŸ₯©
2) eggs for the egg-bath πŸ₯š
3) salt and pepper πŸ§‚
4) keto breadcrumbs @yezfoods or almond flour 🍞
5) lard for frying @fatworks

To make:
1) pound each piece of meat with a mallet until they are large and flat (see photo)
2) crack eggs Into a flat bowl and beat them with salt and pepper
3) pour breading into another shallow bowl
4) bathe meat in egg mixture and then transfer it into the breadcrumbs, pressing down the meat into the crumbs and making sure that every part is covered. You may need to add more crumbs as you go, make sure you put enough on because once they are in the pan, you cannot add more (and you want a nice and crispy schnitzel πŸ˜‹)
5) fry the schnitzel in a pan with heated up lard until each side is crispy brown (typically 10 minutes per side). It’s important that you have enough lard in the pan to make sure the meat becomes crispy 😍

My mom always adds the remainder of the egg to the pan at the very end and as a child I would always steal the egg because it tasted so good like Schnitzel πŸ˜‚

Traditionally, schnitzel is eaten with a lingonberry sauce which we #swapped for a monk fruit sweetened cranberry compote (recipe will follow) πŸ‹πŸ«πŸ“

Ideas for sides include a fresh salad or roasted cauliflower and carrots πŸ₯•πŸ₯¬
