This traditional German pork chop dinner recipe, aka Panierte Schnitzel, is a favorite "30-minute meal recipes" at our house.
First, because it tastes so-o-o good. Second, because the breaded pork chop recipe I use for this is similar to Schnitzel. And, Germans LOVE Schnitzel!
"This 30 minute meal is one of my favourites to prepare when I need something special and don't have much time!"
> Start with the breaded pork chops (clicking opens new window). When choosing the pork chops (one per person), try to get chops that are less than 1-inch. That way, they'll be sure to cook in under 20 minutes.
> I try to use seasoned bread crumbs. That saves another step in the process.
> Also, fill a kettle with water and bring to boil. This will be used for the potatoes.
> Once the chops are browning, it's time to start the potatoes. Use new potatoes so that you don't need to peel them. Use one medium-sized potato per person.
> Scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Cut into chunks, put into a medium-sized pot, and cover with the boiling water. (Refill kettle with water and bring to boil. This is for the vegetables.)
> Add about ½ tsp salt to the potatoes. Bring to boil, cover, and simmer gently for about 15 - 20 minutes, until they test tender when pierced with a knife.
> While the potatoes are cooking, remember to check the pork chops and turn them over to brown.
> It's time to prepare the vegetables. You can use canned or jarred red cabbage. Check out the Hints section of this recipe (opens new window).
> Or you can use frozen vegetables. Check the package for the amounts to use. Put them into a medium-sized pot, barely cover with boiling water.
> Add salt as per package instructions. Cover and gently simmer until tender. Most vegetables take about 4 - 6 minutes. (Check instructions on bag.)
> Drain when done.
> Serve each person one pork chop, some potatoes, and some vegetables.
> Pour about 1 tbsp of the oil/butter mixture that is left in the pan from the chops, over the potatoes if desired.
> Sprinkle with parsley.
That's it! A delicious 30 minutes dinner recipe. Enjoy!
