Pork Milanese is a breaded pork made from boneless center cut pork loin and pounded thin and can be served with fresh lemon juice on top of salad.

Pork Cutlet Milanese is one of my favorite meals to make during busy weeknights. They’re similar to chicken cutlets, but made with boneless center cut pork instead with rosemary and lemon.

Start by pounding the pork until they are uniform in thickness. In a medium bowl, combine Italian and Panko breadcrumbs, fresh rosemary and the zest from one lemon.

In another medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk to form an egg wash. And in a third medium bowl, add the all-purpose flour.

Now it’s time to bread your cutlets. First dip the meat into the flour, then the egg wash and then the breadcrumbs. Repeat for all pieces and place on a separate dish.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; then add the pork cutlets to the pan and brown 4-5 minutes per side (depending on thickness). You will have to do this in batches and be careful not to crowd the pieces of meat to close together.

My family loves Pork Cutlet Milanese and sometimes I’ll even make some Bruschetta to put on top (which is my kids’ favorite way to eat them!). ~Enjoy!
