Who doesn’t like schnitzels?
And the ones I’m sharing today are just to die for.
The lemon and thyme add so much flavour to the coating and make the schnitzel tastes so much different, in a good and tasty way. 🙂
The only part, that is not that appealing is the frying, but the good part is the schnitzels take a few minutes to cook so don’t be put off by the frying.
Serve with some roasted potatoes and a lemon wedge.
Here are the ingredients.


  • 6 pork loin steaks
  • the zest of a 1/2 lemon
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 150g flour
  • 150g golden breadcrumbs
  • 3tbsp dry thyme
  • salt
  • 250ml sunflower oil


Place the pork loin steaks, one by one, between two pieces of cling film.
Flatten the steak using a meat mallet.
In a bowl, beat the eggs.
In a plate, mix the flour, breadcrumbs, lemon zest,salt and thyme.
Heat a frying pan.
Dip each steak into the egg mixture and then dredge with the flour mixture.
Place in the pan and cook for about 3 – 4 minutes on each side until golden.
Keep warm while cooking the other steaks.

Tip: Be very careful when frying as the oil is super hot!
