This spicy pork schnitzel is an incredibly easy recipe with only five ingredients. There’s very little prep time, and it’s ready, pan to plate, within ten minutes. Serving these up with salad or fries makes for an excellent meal. Or try them as a sandwich for a tasty lunch.
We love Franks Buffalo Hot Sauce for the buffalo sauce of choice, but you can choose your own favorite buffalo sauce. Don’t worry about the lack of other seasonings in these spicy pork schnitzels. Most buffalo sauces have a generous amount of salt and sugar included, so you likely don’t need to add any more.
On the tenderizing: Depending on where you live, you may be able to buy already tenderized pork chops. If not, simply cover the meat with some cling film. Then hit it with a tenderizer mallet or rolling pin until the pork chops are around half the thickness. The meat will then cook perfectly with its coating.
