One of my favorite weekend adventures is exploring the downtown area of a city near me. We go down there a fair bit and enjoy the views and some local music groups. However, on this day we went down to run a few errands and explore.
In on of the local stores that I went to in search of a hand soap to be honest the boyfriend found a cookbook that intrigued him. So he bought it!
We love gimmicks such as this and we are often suckered into them…. as long as they are somewhat practical. I have read a bit of this so far and got to admit, it’s pretty funny. Before each recipe there is usually a little anecdote to go along with it. I also figured that it might be neat to share some of our adventures cooking recipes from this book with you all.
Our first recipe, a Pork Schnitzel Sandwich. This was actually easier to make that I had expected. I heard the word ‘schnitzel’ and figured it was some fancy dish that we’d never be able to make. Boy was I mistaken.
The ingredients list was pretty simple and we had everything on hand except the thyme (which I purchased on my last shopping trip in preparation for some recipes we wanted to try).
- Two pork steaks
- Bread Crumbs
- Chili Pepper Flakes
- Parmesan Cheese
Step One: Roll out the Pork until you
have thin steaks (about 1/8th of an inch)
Step Two: Coat each piece of Pork evenly in flour mixed with salt and pepper.
Step Three: Coat floured pork in beaten egg
Step Four: Mix bread crumbs with thyme, chili flakes, and Parmesan cheese. Coat egg covered pork in bread crumb mixture.
Step Five: Fry the breaded pork in a bit of oil for about 7 minutes per side. Times may vary depending on cooking temperature, etc
Not really much to it! It is actually a pretty quick and easy meal to make.
And here’s the finished product. We used Kaiser buns for the schnitzel. I added a herb and garlic cheese slice and some mayo. The boyfriend also added some grainy mustard to his. The toppings for the sandwich is definitely something you can change up based on personal preference.
We paired our sandwiches with a simple spinach salad topped with diced tomatoes, some cubed old cheddar cheese, and some Olive Garden Italian dressing.
I actually really enjoyed the meal. It is definitely something we’ll make again. I like to make different foods and experiment with recipes. I am not one that can eat the same things over and over again. I definitely want a variety!
Have you been experimenting in the kitchen yourself? Or do you have blog posts about recipes that I need to try? If so, leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you!
