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 4 serves. 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.

  • 1 tablespoon of Water
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Herb & Spice Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Pepper
