"Today, I made the best pork schnitzel for my brothers and me. It is hard to find something both my 14- and 8-year-old brothers will eat. I think this recipe solved our problem because they both loved it! All the flavors blended really well together, and I added fresh vegetables to complete the meal. If you do not have a meat mallet, you can pound the pork by putting the chops in a zip-top plastic bag and carefully using a regular hammer. I also enjoyed using parsley in this dish, as it adds a fresh flavor and helps with garlic breath. The dill in the ranch sauce added a nice earthy flavor that I enjoyed. My brothers, however, were not too keen on the dill, so I made a couple of options, including replacing the dill with mint and adding lemon wedges to squeeze on the meat. It all tasted good to me!"


  • Fraanz (age 8): Of course, we told him it was made with chicken, not pork! 10 out of 10
  • Kalani (age 14): He asked to eat it again the next day, so I guess it was a hit! 10 out of 10
  • Matisse: The meat is wonderfully tender, and the breading gives it a nice crisp crunch. 10 out of 10
