1 lb (500g) Ontario lean pork from the loin or leg (or 4 ready-made PORK SCHNITZELS)
1/4 cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) ground black pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp (30 mL) milk
2/3 cup (150 mL) dry breadcrumbs, or 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) fresh 1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola, or other, vegetable oil 1 lemon, cut into wedges
1. Cut pork into four equal portions. Place one piece of pork on a sheet of dampened plastic film. Cover with another sheet of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, or other suitable instrument, gently pound pork to a width of 5-6-inches (12.5 to 15 cm).
Lay out three large plates. Combine the flour, salt and pepper on one plate, combine the egg with the milk on the second, and spread the breadcrumbs on the third.
2. Coat each piece of pork with first flour, then egg mixture, and finally with breadcrumbs.
3. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet until butter begins to foam. Working in batches, brown schnitzels on both sides; this will take only a minute or so. Set schnitzels on paper towels as they are cooked; add more butter and oil to skillet if necessary.
