Keto Pork Schnitzel And Sauerkraut

131 ratings

Crispy, fried pork speaks volumes in comfort food! Pair this dish with tangy sauerkraut and a wedge of lemon for an authentic Eastern European meal. A sprinkling of freshly chopped parsley keeps your plate light and brightly flavored. At your discretion, you can add sour cream to your Pork Schnitzel for dipping.

Recipe Steps

steps 6

35 min

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown mustard. Set this aside.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In another bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, almond flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and dried parsley. Transfer this mixture to plate so it’s easier to coat the pork loin later.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Lay the pork loin slices on a clean surface. Slice them thinly to approx. 8 pieces, if necessary. Pound them to a ½-inch thickness if they’re not already this thin as well.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Heat the 1.5 cups of grapeseed oil in a large skillet on high heat. When the oil is hot, dip each pork loin slice into the egg mixture and then the dry mixture. Place each coated loin in the oil.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Cook the pork for about 5 minutes per side until the outside if lightly golden and the pork is cooked through.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    For serving, chop and sprinkle the fresh parsley over the pork schnitzel. Each serving comes with a ½ cup of sauerkraut and a wedge of lemon.

    Grated Parmesan not shredded. Shredded parmesan won't stick to metal if it was a magnet. Found this out the hard way

      Really delicious, didn’t miss the normal breading at all!

        As an Eastern European myself, I would say that as part of the process of making Schnitzel, you want to pound the meat with a tenderizer. The thinner you get it (without breaking) the faster it cooks, so less frying… and I would always season the meat with salt and pepper, paprika, not the breading. Should come out tasty! Btw, You can also do the same with boneless/skinless chicken breast or thighs! Yummy

          Do not use grapeseed oil for frying, use avocado oil/coconut oil/ animal fat instead.

            Really delicious, even better than "normal" schnitzel, we loved the crunchy breading and cheesy flavour

              We used pork rinds rather than almond flour. Hubby loves this one!

                    I dredge in almond flour, then dip in egg and dredge in ground up porkrinds, it works great.

                      Absolutely devine. I made butter (Konjac) noodles as a side dish and it turned out great! I probably cooked my pork a little longer than I should have but it was still very juicy. I also used ground pork rinds, if you do remeber to try and reduce salt elsewhere. Still, incredibly tasty!

                        I took a few suggestions from other reviews and used crushed pork rinds and a little almond flour with the cheese. Zero issues with it falling off and oh my gosh this was absolutely amazing! I was not expecting such mouth watering goodness (I’m a huge sauerkraut fan so it was appealing)

                          Did u use plain pork rinds or the hot ones?

                        I used crushed pork rinds instead of almond flour - delicious! I fried it in ghee.

                            We have been making our own breadcrumbs (for anything breaded) from Natural Oven's Keto Bread (bought from Costco). Tear it up, taost it in the oven, smash in a baggie to the consistency and size you like. Bread your meat as you normally would. 1 carb for 2 slices.

                            Almond flour never works for me when frying meats or veggies. I use pork rinds but it makes a mess so I rarely bread anything anymore.

                            Best breading is ground up pork rinds... yummy

                          This recipe was AA perfect! The pork was delicious. Tender on the inside, crispy on the outside. I did as another reviewer suggested, add crushed pork rinds to the dry batter. My Parmesan was partially grated and partially shaved. The big pieces of Parmesan melted and was really tasty. The mess will take a while to clean up, but worth it.

                            Use an air fryer for the pork. You would not believe how crispy the coating is and the pork is done perfectly! This is true for chicken thighs as well.

                              400 degrees for 12 minutes. Flip halfway through.

                                Sounds amazing! Can I use vegetable oil instead?

                                  If you're looking for a healthy frying oil, substitute with avocado or coconut oil. But yes, vegetable oil can be used.
