Pork Schnitzel Tips
What oil do you use for pork schnitzel?
Choose a neutral-tasting oil with a high smoke point, like canola, soybean, corn or many vegetable blends—they are some of the best oils for frying
. Add oil to the hot pan and heat it until the oil thins out and coats the bottom of the pan. At the perfect temperature, the oil will appear to “shiver” with ripples of heat. Be careful not to go higher, or the oil may burn.
Can you bake pork schnitzel or make pork schnitzel in an air fryer instead?
Yes! For best results, spritz the cutlets with a spray of oil to help mimic a fried texture. If you’d like to air fry your pork schnitzel instead, check out our air-fried version
