In a time before Tinder, I met my husband at a college bar 4 years ago today. Its crazy how fast time flies by, and how things always seem to change – but one thing still remained the same, we both love to cook. I knew I was in lust when he first asked me over to his apartment for dinner and he made a stir fry. As the old saying goes, “the way to woman’s heart is through her stomach” … that’s at least how I remember it.
Now a-days our cooking has grown up a bit from the stir fry, and on days like this we like to pop open a bottle of pinot nior and make a feast. He’s half Czech and polish, which means there’s a lot cutlets and beets in his family’s dishes. So naturally when we changed our eating habits, we had to find alternatives to these foods.
It took a bit of time, but we came up with the perfect recipe for Kotlety Schabowy, or in English Pork Cutlets. For a quick meal during the week, we typically pair this with some pan fried chopped sweet potatoes and brocollini.
If you are making this recipe, I’ll let you in on a secret … make sure to let the cutlets brown and crisp up in the skillet. This allows for the breading to be less flaky and stay on there longer. But let’s keep that between you and me 😉
Let me know what you think!
Paleo Pork Cutlets (Kotlety Schabowy)
Time 30 minutes
- 4 thin pork cutlets
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup almond flour
- 2 tbps cup coconut flour
- 1 tbps tapioca starch
- ¼ cup grounded flax seed
- 1 tsp pepper
- ¼ garlic powder
- pinch of sea salt
- ¼ tsp cayenne
- 4 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
- Heat coconut oil in large skillet on medium-high heat
- Scramble the egg in a shallow dish
- In a different shallow dish, mix the rest of the dry ingredients
- Rinse the pork cutlets with water and pat dry. Dip one cutlet into the egg dish, and completely cover the cutlet with the egg. After the cutlet is covered, put it in the dry mixture and completely cover it. Set aside and repeat for all cutlets.
- By now your oil should be nice and hot, place the cutlets in the skillet.
- Allow cutlets to brown for 4-6 minutes (depending on the thickness of the pork), then flip and brown the other side for 4-6minutes.
And that’s it, enjoy!!
