We like to serve our pork schnitzel with a side of Buttery Cauliflower Mash and a squeeze of Lemon. They’re also great, accompanied by our Sour Cream & Chive Broccoli Mash.

This keto schnitzel recipe makes four servings. These schnitzels can easily be cooked ahead of time, sliced, and added to a salad for lunch or dinner.

While we’ve used pork top round steaks for our keto schnitzels. Boneless pork chops, loin, and tenderloin also work well.

Keto Schnitzel Recipe Ingredients

  • 14 ounces Pork Top Round, cut into four thin steaks
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon of Heavy Cream
  • 1 tablespoon of Water
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Herb & Spice Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Pepper
  • Oil for deep frying. We used peanut oil because we only had an exposed element-type deep fryer. Tallow or lard would be better if you have a different deep fryer with no exposed element (see our Best Oil for Deep Frying article to make the best choice)

How To Make Keto Schnitzel

  1. Preheat your deep fryer to 180C/355F.
  2. Using a meat mallet or tenderizer, or rolling pin, pound the pork steaks to a thickness of 1/4in/0.5cm.
  3. In a bowl, add the egg, cream, and water and whisk until combined.
  4. On a small baking tray, sprinkle over the parmesan, Italian Herb & Spice Blend, and pepper. Give a light stir to mix the “breading.”
  5. Dip each pork steak into the egg mixture and then coat in the parmesan mixture. Pressing the parmesan into the steak.
  6. Gently place the schnitzels into the deep fryer and fry until golden brown and cooked through. Approximately 5 to 7 minutes. If you have a small deep fryer, it is best to fry the schnitzels in batches to prevent them from sticking together.
  7. Remove the schnitzels from the oil and allow them to drain before serving.
