2 Eggs, Beaten

3 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs

3 Tablespoons Butter

Cup Diced Dill Pickles

1 Bunch Green Onions, Chopped, Green Tops Reserved

1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper, Or To Taste

2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour

2 Cups Cold Milk, Or More As Needed

2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce, Or To Taste

¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper, Or More To Taste

½ Cup Vegetable Oil For Frying

Kosher Salt To Taste


Step 1 Place pork between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2 inch.

Step 2 Place pork pieces on a plate and season both sides generously with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour over pork pieces, lightly coating both sides. Pour eggs over pork, turning to coat.

Step 3 Transfer pork pieces to a bowl filled with panko bread crumbs. Press bread crumbs firmly into the meat on both sides. Transfer breaded cutlets to a clean plate, cover with plastic and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Step 4 Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in pickles, and green onions; cook and stir until onions have softened, about 3 minutes.

Step 5 Sprinkle in 1 1/2 tablespoon flour. Cook and stir for 3 minutes.

Step 6 Slowly stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons cold milk, whisking constantly. Stir in remaining milk, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper. Simmer on low for 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Step 7 Heat half the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 breaded pork cutlets and cook until pork is not longer pink inside, and the crust is well-browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining vegetable oil and pork cutlets. 8 Cutlets; Serves 4. Serve with Mash potatoes, green beans and garlic rolls.
