Breaded Pork Cutlets and Gravy


Every year for hubby’s birthday, he requests his mom’s recipe of Pork Cutlets with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy! Hubby’s 33rd birthday was no different than the rest. Because our Mother’s Day festivities were held on my husband’s birthday, I made his birthday dinner on Mother’s Day. It turned out great, and there are NEVER leftovers. The kids all ask for seconds, and hubby most definitely asks for seconds.

My mouth is watering, just looking at the picture, and typing up the recipe!

Breaded Pork Cutlets and Gravy
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 6 Cubed Pork Steak or Thinly sliced Boneless Pork Chops
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs milk
  • breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tbs beef bouillon (optional)
  • 2-3 Tbs flour
  • 1 cup milk, possibly more
Instructions
  1. Beat egg and Tbs of milk together in a dish.
  2. Dip each piece of meat in egg mixture, then into the breadcrumbs.
  3. Fry cutlets in 1/4 cup butter, on medium-high, until just browned on each side.
  4. Turn heat down to low, cover, and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
  5. Remove meat and place in the oven or microwave to keep warm.
  6. To drippings in pan, add beef bouillon (if desired) and flour. If not adding bouillon, salt and pepper. Mix, until drippings and flour is combined into a thick rue. If it seems really dry, you can add an additional tablespoon or two of butter.

  • Just ate this for lunch – YUMMMMMMMMMMMO! It’s amazing what incredibly delicious things can come from such simple ingredients. Thanks for posting the recipe!

  • I made this tonight and it’s very good. The only thing I did differently was cover mine for just a few minutes, and next time I won’t even do that. I used cubed pork steak, and it’s thin enough that you shouldn’t really need the covered cooking time. Plus that trapped all the moisture inside the pan, so they weren’t nearly as crispy as I wanted.
