Ingredients

  • 4 x 125g pork escalopes, bashed out to about 75mm thickness
  • 100g plain flour, seasoned
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 100g fresh breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

For the red cabbage sauerkraut

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 600g red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 red apples, halved, cored and
  • thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp light muscovado sugar

Method

  1. Make the sauerkraut. Gently heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes, until soft. Add the cabbage, apples, vinegar and sugar. Toss together with a good pinch of salt. Cover and simmer for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, dust each escalope with the flour and dip into the egg. Press into the breadcrumbs to coat.
  3. Add 2cm vegetable oil to a frying pan and put over a medium heat. When hot, cook the pork schnitzels for 2-3 minutes each side, until cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with the sauerkraut, lemon wedges to squeeze over and broccoli, if you like.
