Pan-Fried Pork Chop with Herbed Drop-Noodles
In Austria, schnitzel is meat that has been pounded, breaded and fried. In the American South, something similar is often called chicken-fried steak. This dish is something between the two, with boneless pork chops pounded, breaded with buttermilk and panko (a crispy Japanese breadcrumb), and pan-fried. Our take on spaetzle, a German egg noodle, is close to the original – but this one is quickly mixed and dropped from a plastic bag. In any culture, it’s weeknight comfort food at its best.
