Pork Fillet Schnitzel Oven Baked

Pork fillet, or tenderloin is the most tender cut of pork and makes delicious pork schnitzels. This recipe uses minimal oil by oven baking the schnitzels but if desired you can also pan fry these tender fillet schnitzels.

The pork fillet makes a surprising number of fillet escalopes that can be breaded and baked. If you don’t need them all, the pre-prepared fillets can also be frozen between layers of baking paper ready to bake at any time.
