  • 4 cups hot cooked couscous (1-1/2 cup dry)
  • 2 cups sugar snap peas, steamed

Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Mango Salsa:

  • 1-1/2 cups finely diced fresh mango
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 red serrano or red jalapeño pepper, seeded, finely chopped

COOKING:

  1. Combine marinade ingredients. Place beef Top Round Steak and marinade in a food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Just before grilling steak, combine salsa ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, about 10 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on the preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium-rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook).
  4. Carve steak into thin slices. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with salsa, couscous, and sugar snap peas.

Faux Wiener Schnitzel

Air-Fryer-Pork-Schnitzel-Pin-1jpg-683x1024

 

Or simply called Bavarian Pork Schnitzel or Pork Schnitzel.  Today I’m trying out the air fryer.  It could be my secret to a healthy alternative to deep-frying. Trying out bavarian seasonings as well we will see if my favorite dinner guest approves.

If you don’t have an air fryer there are two other options.

Baking:

Use a high heat of 425-450 degrees. Make sure to flip it about halfway through so you don’t have a crispy side and a mushy side. Or place the chops on a cooling rack atop a baking sheet so the heat can get to both sides.

PanFried

If you go with pan-frying, then just use enough oil to coat the bottom of your pan. Again, high heat is your friend. Plus if you can find lard instead of oil and healthy eating isn’t your friend then go with lard, it will taste better.

Also to answer the question of a friend.

Can you make schnitzel with chicken?

Schnitzel can be made with chicken, veal, beef, turkey, pork, venison, and if you want to do it with ostrich – go for it!

Bavarian Pork Schnitzel ( it’s the combination of spice that makes it bavarian)

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless pork chops, cut or pounded to 1/3″ thickness
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced rosemary
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cups bread crumbs, I like to make my own

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Rinse and pat dry the pork chops
  2. Turn on the air fryer to 390°
  3. In one bowl mix bread crumbs, spices and blend well, plus salt and pepper to taste.  Place egg and flour in two separate bowls.
  4. Dip chop in flour to coat. Then into the egg wash. Then dredge all sides of the pork into the panko mixture.  Finish all pork chops and coat all surfaces.
  5. Spray the basket from the air fryer with olive oil spray then place into the air fryer basket.
  6. My air fryer will hold 2 pork chops.  Place them into the basket and cook for 16 minutes opening at 8 minutes, spraying with a light burst of oil to help get a golden brown color.  (16 minutes because my pork chops were about an inch thick) All air fryers are slightly different check temperature to make sure it is 145° or cut into them and check to make sure the pork is opaque.
  7. Cook in batches if you have more than will fit into your air fryer.  Place cooked ones onto a plate and cover to keep warm until the rest are completed.
  8. Serve immediately.
