Breaded Pork Cutlet with Avocado-and-Shredded Kale Salad

  Total Time: 33 Min 

  Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 large bunch Lacinato kale, thick stems discarded and leaves thinly sliced
  • 5 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 pork cutlets (about 1 lb.), pounded thin
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 small head radicchio, leaves torn
  • 1 c. snap peas, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 lemon, peel removed and flesh chopped

How to Make It:


Step 1: Toss together kale and 3 tablespoons oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to soften.


Step 2: Place flour in a shallow dish. Place eggs in a second shallow dish. Place breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish. Season pork with salt and pepper. Working one piece at a time, dip pork in flour, then in eggs, then in breadcrumbs, pressing gently to help adhere.


Step 3: Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork, in batches, until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Slice into thin strips.


Step 4: Add radicchio, snap peas, avocado, and lemon to the kale and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve salad topped with pork.
