A couple of weeks ago, I was looking for a new pork recipe. Lately, I've been turning to The Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen. There are so many good recipe finds there. As I was searching "pork", Szriskes came up. Szriskes are the Czech version of Wiener Schnitzel. Basically, this is a breaded and fried pork chop.

Let's get started!

You'll need pork (I used boneless chops), eggs with a little beer or apple juice added, flour seasoned with salt and pepper, and bread crumbs seasoned how you like them. I used dried parsley, thyme, and basil. A side note: three eggs was way too much. I would start out with just two and add another if you absolutely need it.

Add a little oil to your skillet and turn on to medium-high heat.

Dip the chops into the flour...

Then the egg...

And finally, the bread crumbs.

Fry 'em up until the meat is cooked through!

Golden brown and delicious!

I decided to take this a step further and make gravy! Read on.

I added a bunch of thin-sliced onions to the pan and cooked them until they were nice and tender.

I then added some flour to soak up all of the grease and then added three cups of beef broth. Stirring constantly until you have a nice smooth gravy. Well, except for there will be onions in there!


I served the pork on top of a scoop of brown rice with the gravy smothering both. We also had cheesy broccoli from the garden.

This was really delicious! We will definitely be having Szriskes again!

It's not easy, but the best I can come up with is "stritskees". It may not even be close, though! I only had one semester of Czech! (Extracurricular...)
