When you make Wiener schnitzel with pork instead of veal, it is a really inexpensive dinner. Chris Koetke, host of Let's Dish on the Live Well Network, shares a classic German recipe he learned many years ago on the restaurant circuit.

Recipe for Schnitzel
Difficulty: Easy
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10-15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:
1 ½ lbs. boneless pork loin chops (4 pieces) trimmed of all fat
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Flour
2 eggs, beaten
Panko breadcrumbs
Oil for sautéing
4 whole eggs
2 ½ oz. baby arugula, seasoned with balsamic vinaigrette
Lemon wedges

Method:
1. Place pork loin pieces individually between plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, flatten the pork to a thickness between 1/8-¼ inch.
2. Season the pounded pieces of pork with salt and pepper.
3. Dredge in flour, then beaten egg, and finally panko.
4. Fry pork in a sauté pan over high heat with plenty of oil. When both sides are lightly browned and the pork is cooked through, remove from pan, place on a baking sheet, and keep warm in a low temperature oven.
5. Fry whole eggs over easy or sunny side up.
6. To serve, place pork on a plate, top with egg, and serve salad on the side.
