Weinerschnitzel/Schweiner Schnitzel (Paleo-ish alert)

Here’s one of our favorite Paleo-ish recipes.  An actual family recipe from Elle’s mom.
[Paleo-ish here for two reasons:  bread crumbs and our wallet (we use Pork and not Veal, making it Schweiner Schnitzel)]

1 1/2 lbs Veal Cutlets or Boneless Pork Chops
Gluten-Free Flour (the Trader Joe’s brand is fairly inexpensive)
3 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp minced parsley
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Nutmeg to taste
2 Tbs low-fat milk
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
6 Tbs unsalted butter
4 slices lemon

Please each chop between 2 sheets of plastic/wax paper and pound with the smooth side of a meat tenderizer until thin (1/4″ – 3/8″). Dip meat into flour and coat.

Blend together cheese, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and milk. Dip cutlets into this batter, coat with breadcrumbs and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Cook breaded cutlets in butter until golden brown on both sides. Pour pan juices over cutlets and serve with lemon slices.
